YARD WASTE COLLECTION AND STREET SWEEPING TO BEGIN WEEK OF APRIL 2ND

 

 

YARD WASTE COLLECTION AND STREET SWEEPING TO BEGIN THE WEEK OF APRIL 2ND 

 

 

Pawtucket –Mayor Donald R. Grebien and the Pawtucket City Council have announced that yard waste collection and street sweeping will begin on Monday, April 3, 2023. Residents are asked to leave leaf bags on their regular trash pickup day.

“We are happy to continue this program again this year,” said Mayor Donald R. Grebien. “This is a great way to ensure the city stays clean and provides our residents with an important service. Our Public Works Department is here to answer additional questions you may have and assist.”

Leaves and yard waste must be placed in brown yard waste bags that are available at all local hardware stores or put in a barrel (33 gallons or less) clearly labeled yard waste in order to be collected. Plastic bags are not allowed to be used for leaves or yard waste. This program does not cover wood from building materials or scrap wood.

Leaf bags should remain separate from all other trash and recycling and cannot be mixed in with regular household trash as the mixed waste bags will not be collected. When mixed with household trash, leaves, and other yard waste add significantly to the City’s disposal cost.

Parking will be prohibited on the scheduled street sweeping and recycling collection days. Cars parked on the streets prevent the sweeper from reaching the curb, and cars in front of trash and recycling bins contain their collection.

The leaf and yard waste program runs until December 8th. For more information or questions, email dpw@pawtucketri.com or call 401-728-0500 ext. 233.
