While some neighborhoods in Boston will experience a change in trash pick up as part of new collection, hauling and disposal contract, Charlestown will be unaffected.

Sunrise Scavenger will service Charlestown and the trash collection schedule here is unchanged.

Mayor Martin J. Walsh and the Department of Public Works announced the new collection hauling and disposal contracts this week. The new contract will be effective July 1, 2014 and last until the end of the contract term in fiscal year 2019.  “I’m concerned for the environment and we have to do our part by protecting our City,” said Walsh. “This new contract has been implemented with the goal of encouraging more recycling and trash collection, keeping our current financial climate in mind.”
