Free stickers for removal of damaged items

Residents who incurred damage to personal property as a result of flooding that occurred after the Jan. 4 snowstorm can obtain up to eight free stickers for the curbside removal of white goods and  “bulky items” through Jan. 26.  This stickers can be obtained at the Inspectional Services Department, 249R Broadway (the American Legion Building, rear).

City ordinance requires stickers be purchased in advance for the removal of white goods such as washers, refrigerators, stoves, freezers, and the like.  Stickers are also required for bulky items such as mattresses and furniture and other enumerated items.

“We realize that people incurred the loss of multiple items in the flood, and we hope that facilitating the removal of damaged property will ease the burden these residents endured,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “These residents are confronted with the need to clear out flooded basements, and by waiving the fee requirements, we lessen the financial aspect of their cleanup.”

The temporary fee waiver does not alter the prohibition of curbside removal for specialty items such as computers, televisions, paint cans, tires, light bulbs etc., which must be taken to the DPW facility on Charger Street.  Residents who require more than eight stickers will be charged the usual fee for stickers in excess of eight.  Items bearing a sticker can be placed for removal on regularly-scheduled trash removal days.  For more information on the items for which stickers are required and further restrictions, see Revere Revised Ordinances  8.04.027.
