2020 Spring Cleanup Information

The preferred method of disposing of brush, yard waste, and leaves is to bring them to the organic disposal site at the Public Works facility at 530 Maine Avenue. A permit is required and can be obtained at no charge to Bangor residents at the Public Works office.

Due to the current COVID-19 pandemic, Public Works will not be issuing new permits until deemed safe to do so. Public Works crews will be doing spot registration checks and any non-Bangor resident will be turned away.

Update 5/11/20
Spring Clean Up continues to progress slowly. Public Works asks for patience as they make their way through the city. It takes about 30 days to go through the entire city for Spring Clean Up, possibly longer because of the April 10th storm.

As of 5/11/20, brush pickup for the following streets have been completed. Once a street is marked as complete, any brush or leaves brought to the side of the road will have to brought to Public Works by the property owner. Public Works will not send a vehicle through that area again after completion.
