**The Yard Waste Facility on Dudley Road will open to the public on Friday, April 6, 2018. Learn more about Yard Waste Collection in the City. **

**A proposed special curbside collection to address the high volume of brush from the March winter storms is currently before the City Council awaiting approval of a funding request needed for the collection. The leaf and brush collection dates currently listed on our Yard Waste Facility webpage are the orginally planned dates for 2018 but will be revised if the Department receives funding for the special collection.

In the meantime, please be reminded that brush must be kept off the sidewalk and kept on personal property until the collection date.**

Did you know?

About 50% of the City's roadways were built before World War II. 25% of the current stormwater, water and wastewater infrastructure put in place at that time  is now over 70 years old.

The City of Framingham tripled in population during the 25 years after World War II and 50% of the stormwater, water and wastewater systems were installed.

In 2006, the city accelerated the Capital Improvement Program to remedy this situation.
