Yardwaste Site Will Now be Open on Weekends

Saturday, April 4, was to be opening day for the Nahant Street Yardwaste site (“the Pit”). However, to ease the burden placed on residents during the COVID-19 pandemic, it has been open Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. since March 23. 

Beginning Saturday, April 4, the schedule will be extended to include both weekend days.

Until further notice, residents can drop off their leaves, brush, and grass clippings seven days a week from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Though you’d typically need a permit, that requirement will temporarily be waived. Yardwaste must be disposed of in compostable paper bags. If barrels or plastic bags are used, please empty them on site and carry them out with you. In order to provide other visitors with a safe amount of space during a time of distancing, please allow the car in front of you to unload before exiting your vehicle.
