COVID-19 Update

Starting Monday, March 15, Somerville residents can once again drop off select waste items at the DPW Yard at 1 Franey Road. Yard waste, electronic waste, and tires will be accepted. Note that yard waste cannot be in plastic bags.

Residents may drop off eligible items weekdays between 8:30 a.m. and 12 p.m. or between 1 p.m. and 3:30 p.m. Proof of residency, such as a driver's license or utility bill, is required and must be presented at the guard shack. Drop-off will be open to residents only, not contractors. The City reserves the right to refuse drop-off for any reason.

Residents are required to wear a mask and observe all City COVID-19 protocols during drop-off. DPW office buildings remain closed to the public.

Additionally, the City of Somerville, in collaboration with ACV Enviro, will be hosting an alternative program for residential pick up of Household Hazardous Waste. Instead of coming to a drop-off site, we are coming to you! Learn more at somervillema.gov/HWPickup.

Beyond the Bin: Even if you can't put it in your bin at home, someone else can put it to good use.
