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

Newburyport – Due to the Independence Day Holiday, which falls on a Tuesday, neighborhoods normally scheduled for Tuesday through Friday trash and recycling pickups will have their collections delayed by one day. Residents with Monday pick-up will have pick-up on Monday, as usual. Residents who typically have Tuesday pick-up will have pick-up on Wednesday, and so on. Friday route residents will have pick-up on Saturday, with the exception of the designated Downtown District, which will have Friday pick-up, as usual.

The Newburyport Yard Waste Facility on Colby Farm Way (formerly known as Crow Lane) will be closed on Tuesday, July 4. The Facility will be open, as usual, on Wednesday, July 5.  The Residents may buy a sticker when they drop off their first load  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 has been re-scheduled to  Saturday, July 8.This is held at the Colby Farm Lane Recycle Center, off Low Street, between 8 a.m. and 12 p.m. Residents may bring anything with a cord or batteries, appliances (large and small), anything metal (including grills and lawn mowers), rechargeable batteries, fluorescent bulbs, mercury thermometers and thermostats, white packing Styrofoam, tires, bicycles,
motor oil, and antifreeze.

Our next household hazardous waste day will take place on Saturday, Sept. 23 for disposal of household chemicals. That will be located at the Department of Public Services at 16A Perry Way.
