December 4, 2017 – Pursuant to a City Council resolution introduced by City Counselor Pam Laliberte-Lebeau, Mayor Jasiel F. Correia is pleased to announce a holiday purple bag amnesty program. Between December 26 and December 30, inclusive, a reprieve of the pay-as-you-throw program will be instituted. No fines will be levied against those who do not use purple bags to dispose of trash during that time period.
