"As the COVID-19 pandemic has our field staff operating in smaller numbers, we ask for assistance in ensuring recycling carts are properly placed," DPW said. 

DPW also said curbside brush collection remains suspended. Brush and branches, in any volume, are currently accepted for FREE at the Drop Off Centers where no person-to-person contact is required. All other yard debris including grass clippings, weeds, and garden debris must be composted, mulched on-site, or brought to a Drop Off Center
