Important Holiday Schedule Information for Trash and Recycling Disposal and Yard Waste Facility

Newburyport –

Due to the Memorial Day Holiday, trash and recycling pick-up will be delayed by one day, all week. Residents with Monday pick-up will have pick-up on Tuesday, residents who typically have Tuesday pick-up will have pick-up on Wednesday, and so on. Friday residents will have pick-up on Saturday.

Looking ahead, trash and recycling pick-up will have the same sort of delay the week of July 4. Independence Day falls on a Monday this year.

The Municipal Yard Waste Facility on Crow Lane will NOT be affected by the Memorial Day Holiday.  It will be open on Tuesday, May 31 as usual, with normal business hours of 7:30am -2:30 pm.  The Yard Waste Facility is open Tuesdays through Saturdays, 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Residents may buy a sticker which gives them access to the Yard Waste Facility through the first weekend in December. (See the City website or Health Department brochure for more detail.)

The July drop-off day for recyclables will be postponed until the second Saturday of the month, July 9. This is held at the Crow Lane Recycle Center, off Low Street, between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m.

Our next household hazardous waste day will take place on Saturday, Sept. 10 for disposal of household chemicals. That will be located at the Department of Public Services at 16A Perry Way.

The FY 2016-2017 Health Department brochure which includes the yearly trash and recycling calendar will be mailed to each household in June. If you do not receive it, call us or view it  on line at www.cityofnewburyport.com .
