DPW Day on June 9th!

The 14th Annual DPW Day will be held on June 9th (rain date of June 10th) from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Tremont Street Operations Facility, 72 Tremont St.

The DPW is hard at work preparing this fun and educational day for the children and residents of Melrose. Our theme this year is Discover the World of Public Works! DPW Day includes environmental themed presentations and games created by a select group of 4th grade students, demonstrations of tasks in DPW, fun games and rides, as well as exhibitors including engineering, water, trash and recycling, fun games and much more.

Students in grades K-3 of the Melrose schools will attend the event as a field trip, and Melrose residents are also invited to bring their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, ages 8 or younger, to join in the event between 10 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Because of the large number of children attending, Tremont Street will be closed and the City Yard will be closed to residents dropping off yard waste/recyclables that day.

For a listing of additional events or for more information, please call 781-665-0142.
