Residents have the option of getting additional blue recycling
containers from the city or using their own 35-gallon or smaller
recycling container. All recycling containers should be labeled as
“recycling” to reduce confusion with waste; “recycling” stickers are
available at the DPW or City Hall
If you, or other occupants of your household, have a temporary or permanent handicap or disability that prevents you from placing waste containers at curb for pick-up you may be eligible for backyard collection of your trash. To apply, complete a Backyard Collection of Trash Application and submit it to the Dept of Public Utilities Administration Office between 8:30 AM - 4 PM, Monday - Friday. The Office is located at 100 North St, Mezzanine Level.
Application available on-line at: www.cityofpittsfield.org/city_hall/public_works_and_utilities/docs/Back_Yard_Pick_up_Application.pdf
