What the Department of Public Works puts down for snow and ice control in the winter, the Department of Public Works has to pick up in the spring.
Residents are asked to sweep their sidewalks and tree lawns (the grass strip that often exists between the walk and the roadway) into the street. Please don't sweep the sand into a pile since that makes it more difficult for the sweepers to pick up the material.
Instead, sweep it into a row along the curb. Sweeping is scheduled to begin the week of March 28, 2016 weather permitting.
If you have any questions regarding the sweeping program please contact the Highway Division at (781) 942-9092 or the D.P.W. Administration office at (781) 942- 9077.
You can help us by:
- Sweeping debris from sidewalks into gutters.
- Moving any parked cars that will interfere with our sweeping.
- Sweepers cannot pick up brush, branches or yard waste. Please bring these items to the Compost Area.
