The 13th Annual DPW Day will be held on June 11th (rain date of June 12th) from 8:30 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Tremont Street Operations Facility, 72 Tremont St. The DPW is hard at work preparing this fun and educational day for the children and residents of Melrose. Our theme this year is Learn Today, Lead Tomorrow! DPW Day includes environmental themed presentations from a select group of 4th grade students, demonstrations of tasks in DPW, exhibitors including engineering, water, trash and recycling, fun games, and much more. Students in grades K-3 of the Melrose schools will attend the event as a field trip, and Melrose residents are also invited to bring their children, grandchildren, nieces and nephews, ages 8 or younger, to join in the event.
Because of the large number of children attending, Tremont Street will be closed and the City Yard will be closed to residents dropping off yard waste/recyclables that day.
