City sets holiday week recycling schedule

NEWBURYPORT — The Municipal Compost Facility on Crow Lane will be closed on Thursday, July 4, for the holiday. It will reopen on Friday, July 5, with normal business hours of 7:30 a.m.-2:30 p.m. Do not drop off brush or debris at the gate or on the road when the facility is closed.

The Crow Lane Recycling Center will be open on Saturday, July 6, for the monthly recycling of oil paint, motor oil, tires, electronics, bicycles and batteries. The yearly household hazardous waste day will take place on Saturday, Sept. 21, for disposal of household chemicals. Again, do not drop off any material at the recycling center when it is closed.

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.

If you need any additional information, call the Health Department at 978-465-4410.
