The Department of Solid Waste provides environmentally safe, time responsive, and cost effective collection, disposal and recycling services for the Fall River residential and commercial customers.

Our mission is to offer excellent garbage, brush, leaf, and large item collection services. The city is committed to delivering the highest quality of these services while managing costs effectively.

We utilize refuse and recycling trucks to make 18,000 daily curbside household collections of:

  • Solid waste
  • Recycling
  • Bulky items
  • Yard waste – (April – December)
  • Paint and Oil – (May – October)
  • Proper disposal of Needles – Sharps

Keeping our city clean and our neighborhoods beautiful takes a collective effort of both city government and residents. To that effect, the division is also responsible for street sweeping and litter enforcement. City-wide cleanup, while also assisting the various neighborhood groups in their on-going efforts to maintain their beloved areas of the city.
