Tips to Help Us to Keep Things Running on Schedule...
  1. Sweeping operations are conducted from 7 AM to 3 PM. The street sweeping schedule and pertinent information is publicized a week ahead in the daily newspaper posted as indicated above, and on this website.

  2. This schedule is subject to change due to inclement weather. Should inclement weather prevent sweepers from working in your area as scheduled, they will return seven (7) days from the date originally scheduled.

  3. Please remove all cars from the street and encourage your neighbors to do the same for a cleaner LYNN. When necessary, any vehicles, which impede sweeping operations, may be ticketed or towed in accordance with city ordinances. Contact the Department of Public Works for additional information at (781) 268-8000

  4. Sidewalks may be swept into the gutter but large piles of leaves and debris will not be acceptable and will not be swept up.

In New England, rain barrels can as much as 1700 gallons of water during the extended summer months. They also reduce pollutants from entering into the water supplies by reducing runoff – this helps towns manage the water supplies and keep costs down.  Rain barrel are low cost and easy to install.   

The rain barrel is repurposed from a 60 gallon shipping drum that are 39" tall by 24" wide, 20 lbs. empty. The shipping drum is made from 3/16" polyethylene which is UV protected and BPA free. The barrel comes complete with overflow fittings, drain plug, screw on cover, and a threaded spigot with a choice of two ports to use with either a watering can or a garden hose. The rain barrel arrives with simple instructions for fast and easy installation.
