Pittsfield residents have two options for disposing of their Christmas trees. Residents may take their tree to Covanta Pittsfield on Hubbard Avenue at no cost. Please remove all the tinsel, lights, and ornaments from the trees, so they can be recycled. Or residents may place their tree with their trash on the curb for Allied Waste to collect as part of regular trash collection.
The Department of Public Works announces that sand piles have been placed at the Barker Road fire station, the Peck's Road fire station and the Williams Street Plaza. Residents are requested to limit their pickups to 50 pounds (one 5-gallon pail) per visit.
