The Department of Public Works is responsible for and is committed to maintaining the city's physical infrastructure and providing quality services to the citizens of Hartford.
The City of Hartford’s Department of Public Works (DPW) is offering certified organic compost, made of leaves collected in the fall, to Hartford residents at no charge. Residents can take up to 32 gallons of compost from the Bulky Waste and Recycling Center, located at 180 Leibert Rd., Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 2 p.m. Residents are required to bring photo identification, their own containers, shovels and gloves. The program starts today and will continue while supply lasts, which is typically through May. The program, which is in its fifth year of operation, is also made available to local community gardens.
