Somerville’s yard waste pickup begins Tuesday, April 19. That week’s collection is on a one-day delay due to the Patriots’ Day Holiday on Monday, April 18, so put all trash, recycling, and yard waste out one day later than you normally would. A full yard waste calendar is available at somervillema.gov/yardwaste and will be in the Environmental Service Guide, which will be mailed to all households later this month.
Yard waste should be put out with your trash and recycling on your normal pickup day. Yard waste must either be in a paper bag or a trash barrel with a “Yard Waste Only” sticker. Stickers are available free of charge at the DPW Building, 1 Franey Road, or the entrance desk at City Hall, 93 Highland Avenue. To request a sticker be mailed to you, please call 311 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
