Newburyport – Trash and recycling pick up for Thursday January 4 (which is really the Wednesday route due to the holiday on January 1) has been canceled due to the impending storm. Trash and Recycling collections will take place as planned on Friday, January 5 for Thursday’s routes and for the downtown district, and on Saturday, January 6 for the Friday route. The Wednesday trash route will not be made up this week and will be picked up next week on Wednesday, January 10.
For those people who have recyclables that they need to get rid of, you may take them to the Recycling Center on Monday, Jan 8, or Thursday Jan 11, from 12 p.m. to 2.15 p.m. Alternatively, you can stash them in any container (including a cardboard box), label it “Recycle” and the truck will take it on Wed. Jan 17.
Please bring in any barrels or material off the sidewalks and streets prior to the storm.
There will also be no drop-off recycling at the Recycling Center on Colby Farm Lane on Saturday, January 6 due to extreme temperatures. The next time the Recycling Center will be open on a Saturday is February 3, 2018, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. Please call the recycling office if you have an urgent need.
Christmas tree pick up will continue after the storm and through-out the month of January. If you put your tree at the curb by Thursday, January 18, the trees will be used in the Newbury Fire Department’s annual bonfire fundraiser. Newburyport High School’s National Honor Society members are also offering to pick up Christmas trees for the bonfire. You may contact the National Honor Society at this email address: [email protected]
