City Adds Summer Leaf and Yard Waste Pickups

Mayor Marty Walsh has been open-handed in the first months of his term, promising more money for libraries, the Main Street business development program and now extra leaf and yard waste pickups. Walsh announced Tuesday the city would add four summer pickups to the usual spring and fall collections. We've got a query in to his office on how much the extra collections will cost and will update this item when we find out. Spring leaf and yard waste collections begin next week. They run for the following weeks:

April 28
May 5
May 12
May 19 (ends Friday, May 23)

The summer collections will be the weeks of:

June 16
