For the holidays, the city is offering homeowners and tenants a 50 percent discount on the purchase of overflow trash bags used as part of the automated, wheeled trash cart pickup system.
The discounted rate of $3.75 per roll of five overflow trash bags began Monday. It applies to purchases at the Highway Department, 500 Primrose St., or the treasurer’s office at City Hall, 4 Summer St., Room 114. The 50 percent discount is limited to one roll per household and ends Friday, Jan.6.
“Remember that there is no limit to the amount of overflow bags you can place curbside. Bags are to be placed next to your wheeled trash cart on your regular trash collection day; no appointment necessary. We hope that this accommodation helps you and your family during this holiday season,” a statement reads.
WHAV has made several attempts to reach Haverhill Solid Waste and Recycling Coordinator Franco Cordano for further comment. Public Works Director Michael K. Stankovich has the week off.
