YARD WASTE

 Woonsocketresidents are reminded that curbside pick-up of yard waste (grass clippings, small branches, weeds, etc.) for 1-3 family properties, will resume on Monday, April 14and continue through Friday, June 20.  Place yard waste in compost bags (do not use any kind of tape to secure the bags closed) or closed barrels (with lids) clearly marked “YARD WASTE” and leave them curbside on your collection day by 7 am.

 The drop-off site in Blackstone, MA, off Canal Street (North Smithfield) will be open Wednesdays 8am – 3pm and Saturdays 8am to 3:45pm, starting April 16th 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 (PURPLE for 2014) can be obtained at City Hall in the Department of Public Works, Monday through Friday 8:30am – 4pm at a cost of $25.00.  Proper identification and vehicle registration is required.

 All WHITE, BURGUNDY, GREEN, BLUE and PINK colored yard waste stickers issued prior to January 2014 have expired.

 Commercial vehicle registrations are excluded from this program.

 This program is for yard waste only; it is illegal to combine yard waste and household waste.
