Find Your Regular Trash Day

Please note: The schedule for hazardous waste and yard waste collection is created by our Environmental Services Coordinator in collaboration with DPW and City vendors, and is typically released in March as part of the Environmental Service Guide. We will publish the ESG to the Trash & Recycling Information page as soon as it’s available, and all Somerville residents will receive a copy in the mail.

Programs & Initiatives

In 2023, the City created the Digital Bridge Initiative (DBI). The goal of the DBI is to support existing programming and to create new initiatives.
Join us to celebrate Somerville’s open spaces, engage with the City outside of formal meetings, and of course – enjoy some pizza.
