Public Works


The City continues to seek long-term solutions for recycling glass and plastics #3-7. Until a solution is found, please do not put these materials in your recycling bin for curbside collection. 

Attend an upcoming Open Town Hall Session and learn more about the global recycling industry, the City of Winchester's new recycling program, and tips on how to reduce and reuse. Following the discussion there will be plenty of time to ask questions. Click here for the Open Town Hall schedule (August 20, 28 & 31).

Recycling collection on September 2 is moved to Wednesday, September 4 due to the Labor Day holiday. Yard waste is canceled September 4.
