The Fiscal Year 2013-2014 Health Department brochure that includes the yearly trash and recycling calendar should have arrived at residents’ home in late May. If you did not receive it, it is available online at www.cityofnewburyport.com.
There will be no trash or recycling pickup on Thursday, July 4. Thursday’s trash pickup will therefore be on Friday and Friday’s will be on Saturday except for the downtown area, which will remain on Friday.
