Public Works



Debris removal crews have been at work for several days and are partially complete on a first pass of debris pickup. Crews are working from the south end of the island toward the north and have reached Connecticut St.    When clearing out homes, residents should place debris near the curb for pickup, but not in the street.  It’s important to keep streets clear for traffic to move freely.   It’s also important that vehicles do not block streets debris pickup. Separate your debris by type, with construction debris, appliances, electronics and household garbage in separate piles.


Waste Management trucks are picking up trash on the island daily.   For health and safety reasons, they ask that you dispose of your food and kitchen waste first and save other household debris for later pickups. Please separate food and household trash from construction debris, appliances and electronics.
