    CITY WIDE "SPECIAL PRESNOW STREET SWEEPING" SCHEDULE: DPW will sweep the city one last time in preparation for the winter season. This additional city wide Presnow Street Sweeping will take place, weather permitting, November 1 - December 13, 2016.

    In order to maximize the benefits of a final citywide sweep before snow season, Public Works relies on residents moving their cars off the street on their specially scheduled street sweeping day. Additionally, residents are reminded that blowing leaves into the street will not only incur fines but also hamper presnow street sweeping as well as plowing operations. Though Public Works will make all efforts to paper post each route, residents are encouraged to follow this link and download the special pre snow schedule: http://cityofnewhaven.com/PublicWorks/sweep/index.asp or call the Department of Public Works at 203-946-7700.


    Department of Public Works announced Fall 2016 paving projects will begin on Wednesday, September 21 and continue through the month of October. Streets to be paved are based upon current road conditions, traffic usage, available funding, citywide needs and other projects impacting the street. Streets will be posted for "No Parking" the day before paving and downtown streets will be paved overnight.

    Though paving can cause inconveniences to the public, Public Works tries to keep them at a minimum and remains confident that the end results will be worth it.

    If you have any questions, please call the DPW Residents Unit at (203) 946 -7700.

    LEAVES: DPW will collect brown paper leaf bags left out at the curb on your usually scheduled trash and recycling day. The bags must be paper not plastic and must ONLY contain leaves-no sticks, rocks or other materials that can't be easily composted. Bags will be picked up and delivered to the Transfer Station where they will be composted. Residents will incur fines for blowing, raking or placing leaves into the streets and blocking Street Sweeping operations.

    COMPOST BINS: Residents can also compost at home by picking up a free compost bin with instructions at DPW, 34 Middletown Avenue.

    BRANCHES: Branches and sticks will also be picked up at the curb ONLY if they are tied into bundles less than 4 feet in length and 1 foot in diameter. All other yard waste can be disposed of at the Transfer Station with free coupons from DPW.
