April is the month that we (hopefully) say goodbye to snow and welcome the return of spring. Melrose DPW celebrates the changing seasons by cleaning and storing our snow equipment and resuming a variety of services and events for residents:
- Saturday April 1st from 8:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.: Saturday hours resume at the City Yard Recycling Center. Details on what items DPW accepts can be found in a chart at the bottom of this page of the city website.
- Week of April 10th: Curbside yard waste pickup resumes (and continues every other week through the month of June). Details and a link to the schedule can be found here.
- Saturday, April 15th from 8:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.: Paper Shredding event for residents. First box free, each additional box $5. Details and event flier can be found here.
- Now through May 8th: Backyard compost bins and rain barrels on sale to Melrose residents (at or below market value). Details can be found here.
