YARD WASTE COLLECTION RESUMES

Residents are reminded that curbside pick-up of yard waste (grass clippings, small branches, weeds, etc.) for 1-3 unit properties will resume on Monday September 30, 2013 and continue through Friday December 6, 2013. Place yard waste in compost bags or barrels (with lids) clearly marked “yard waste” and leave them curbside on your collection day by 7 am. (Plastic bags containing yard waste will not be collected). Yard waste cannot and must not contain any trash.

Small branches must be cut into lengths not longer than 4’ and tied into bundles using a natural fiber rope/twine.

Please be advised that any one bag or barrel or bundle cannot weigh more than 50 pounds.

The drop-off site in Blackstone, MA, off Canal Street (North Smithfield) is open Wednesdays and Saturdays, for those residents having the appropriate yard waste sticker; all residential properties in the City of Woonsocket are included in the yard waste drop-off program. Stickers can be obtained, for a $25.00 fee, at City Hall in the Department of Public Works, Monday through Friday 8:30 am – 4 pm. Proper identification and vehicle registration is required. Commercial vehicle registrations are excluded from this program.

This program is for yard waste only; it is illegal to combine yard waste with household waste and/or yard waste with recyclables.
