City expands curbside yard-waste pickup to summer

The Boston DPW will pick up yard waste on recycling days during the weeks of June 16, July 14, August 11 and September 15 - and will run fall yard pickup for seven weeks.

Summer clipping pickups will have the same basic rules as the spring and fall pickups: Stuff has to be in paper bags or trash barrels labeled "yard waste" - stuff in plastic bags won't be picked up.

Spring pickup starts next week.

    Late start

    I wish they would start the pickup a month earlier. I'm usually finished with post-winter yard prep before the first yard waste pickup day.
