City Yard Open – Saturday Dec. 8th

Given the record rainfall that we have had this fall and the lack of rain-free Saturdays in November, the DPW has added an additional Saturday drop to the calendar. City Yard and Recycling Center will open Saturday, December 8th from 8am-3pm for yard waste and recycling drop-off. (The Resident Services office will be closed, however.)  This will be the last Saturday that the City Yard & Recycling Center will be open until April 2019.

Please call DPW’s Resident Services office at 781-665-0142 with any questions.
