From the Department of Recycling, Energy, and Resiliency:
Curbside bagged leaf collection will take place on Saturdays: November 2, November 23, and December 14. Residents must place leaves in brown paper leaf bags or in marked barrels. Please fold over the tops of the bags to minimize the amount of leaves spilling out. Bags must be curbside by 6:00 AM and contain only leaves or pumpkins. Note: bags containing branches, plants, dirt, rocks or trash will be left behind.
Composting pumpkins rather than putting them in the trash benefits the city and the environment. You may place them in your leaf bag or backyard compost, drop them off at the Yard Waste Facility (no sticker needed), or, if you’re a subscriber to Black Earth Compost, include it in your green curbside bucket.
Note that Veteran’s Day does not affect the trash or recycling collection schedules.
As a reminder, the Newburyport Yard Waste Facility is open six days a week at this time of year, on Tuesdays through Saturdays from 7:30a.m. to 2:30 p.m., and Sundays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Anticipated final date of the year is Sunday, December 8, weather permitting.
If you haven’t done so already, consider signing up for announcements or urgent alerts from any or all City departments. On the City of Newburyport’s website homepage, click on the round gray button labeled “Notify Me,” and/or the “Code Red” near the bottom of the page.
