The Public Works Administration Office manages all divisions of the Department of Public Works and is directly responsible for the following items:

Recycling and Trash Collection:

The Town's residential recycling and trash collection is under the authority of the Public Works Administration. For detailed information please visit our Trash and Recycling page. Please contact the office at 781-270-1670 for additional information or to report any issues.

Social Media:

The Burlington DPW is on Facebook and Twitter. These social media accounts are not monitored 24/7, so please be aware that any contact through social media may not be addressed until normal working hours. 

Water Meter Appointment Scheduling:

The Burlington DPW has a water meter replacement program in place. This program is designed to ensure all residents and businesses have properly functioning water meters. The DPW sends letters to account holders when their meters need to be replaced due to age, volume that exceeds the life of the meter, or if the meter has stopped sending a reading to the office. Proper readings ensure proper billing.
