DPW Announces New Service for Holyoke Landlords Text Size

The city of Holyoke recently launched a new program to assist landlords in disposal of large items at the DPW Recycling Center.

This service has always been made available to the home owners of the city but through the efforts of Mayor Alex B. Morse and DPW Superintendent Williaml Fuqua, landlords are now included.

The program allows landlords to dispose of a range of “large items” (i.e. couches, mattresses, appliances, tires, etc.) for $10 each.   A permit is required and property owners and managers can acquire one from the DPW office.

“I’m pleased to see this program being launched – it’s a great resource to me as a landlord, and I believe that in general, barriers to disposal incentivize people to dispose of things in unauthorized ways (like dumping them in our alleys).” said Stephen Bosco.

From yard waste to hazardous waste, Holyoke has always been committed to providing innovative services that result in waste handling that is processed and disposed of in a proper and environmental friendly and economical manner.
