TEMPORARY SUSPENSION OF TRASH BAG POLICY – TUESDAY, JUNE 28 – TUESDAY, JULY 5. We have been informed that the vendor for the City of Gloucester trash bags continues to face manufacturing disruptions due to supply chain issues and will not be able to meet the demand for bags this week. Mayor Greg Verga has announced relief for residents by allowing each household to put out 2 – large size (no greater than 36 gallon) garbage bags for pick up, free of charge, for the following dates – Tuesday, June 28 – Tuesday, July 5, 2022. This will allow each household a free trash pick up day while we work through next steps with the vendor. We ask for your cooperation in making this possible by limiting your waste to 2 bags.
Please note, Monday, July 4th is a holiday, there will be no trash collection. Households with Monday pick up will be on Tuesday, and all remaining collections for the week will be one day later. Trash pick up the week of July 4th will run on a holiday schedule.
If you have any questions please contact DPW at 978-325-5600 or Mayor Verga’s office at 978-281-9700. We will provide updates for next week as soon as possible.
Thank you for your patience and cooperation.
City of Gloucester, Massachusetts
