Thanks to a milder winter this year, the department has been able to do additional sweeps of arterials and neighborhood locations throughout the city. You can access the 2017 Street Sweeping Season HERE. Any questions please call Resident Services 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.
