Was your trash out by 7:00 AM?  Your items need to be curbside by 7:00 AM to ensure pickup – truck routes are subject to change.

Did you have recycling out in addition to your trash?  Recycling is mandatory and your trash will not be picked up if you do not recycle.

Is there a delay due to a holiday or bad weather?  Holidays are listed on our DPW Calendar and any last minute changes are posted on our Facebook and Twitter pages.

If none of these reasons apply, please contact the DPW at 978-762-0231 so that we may assist you.

 

You can purchase stickers to dispose of your large trash items curbside.  Please refer to the section on Bulky Item Pickup.

Yard Waste Pickup occurs approximately 12 times a year.  Yard waste must be placed in open barrels separated from your trash or in paper yard waste bags (no larger than 45 gallons or 50 pounds).  For pickup dates and more information, refer to the section on Yard Waste Pickup.

Danvers has dual stream recycling:

  • Glass, metal cans & foil, and plastics #1-7 may be comingled in your recycling bin.
  • Paper including newspaper, magazines, paperboard, cardboard etc. may be bagged in paper, tied or put in a separate bin.
