    FALL 2014 SEASON

    CITY WIDE "TAG-TOW" STREET SWEEPING:  DPW will sweep the city one last time in preparation for the winter season. This additional city wide Tag-Tow Street Sweeping will take place, weather permitting, November 3 – December 12. It's very important to follow TAG-TOW paper postings in all neighborhoods in order to facilitate the last big sweep before winter and avoid having your car towed plus costly tickets issued to you. Please remember-even areas of the city that were not Tag-Tow routes during the regularly scheduled Street Sweeping Season will, for this final big sweep of the season, be TAG-TOW Follow this link to download the schedule.

    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.

    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. Follow this link for further information-http://www.cityofnewhaven.com/PublicWorks/Trash/ResidentialWaste.asp

    LEAF BLOWING: Residents can incur fines for blowing, raking or placing leaves into the streets and blocking Street Sweeping operations.

    SNOW INFO:  Major preparations have been in the works to prepare for this winter season. We will add plans to website as soon as they are completed

    If you have any questions, please call the Department of Public Works at 946-7700.
