Clean streets and sidewalks are essential components of an improved quality of life. To achieve this goal, the city's Sanitation Code, revised in October 2006, makes separate provisions for the collection of garbage, recycling, and bulk items.
With 44 employees, the Department of Public Works is responsible for the physical well-being of the City of Newburgh.
Our activities include:
- Sanitation and recycling collection
