NEWBURYPORT --  City officials say that President’s Day, Monday, is not a holiday for trash and recycling collection and that there will be no delay due to the holiday.

Municipal leaders ask that resident put barrels where they will not impede traffic.

"If necessary, shovel out where they are usually placed or put them on top of the snow if it will not interfere with snow plow activity," says Molly Ettenborough, municipal director of recycling and sustainability initiatives.

Regarding Plum Island, until the snow begins to melt or can be removed, recycling and trash can be brought to the closest main street (Northern Boulevard or Old Point Road) by 7 a.m. on Monday. 

Trash can be put in trash bags on the side of the road. 

For recycling, leaders say to mark your barrel, or use clear bags which you can pick up at City Hall (lower level) or buy at a local grocery store. 

Officials have also put two containers at 115 Water St. (the wastewater treatment plant,) one for recycling and one for trash. 

The city will place Code Red calls in the case of a delay of trash/recycling collection. 

For Code Red phone calls, or e-Alerts, residents can sign up on the city’s home page, and click on the small Code Red symbol. 

For email alerts, click on the button “Notify Me,” also on the home page.
