ABOUT A NEW NATURE PARK IN LEWISTON!
We want your input about a new natural park space on 14 acres of wooded land in the Webster Street neighborhood! This park will offer walking trails, an elevated boardwalk over wetlands, and a natural play area within a forested setting. Check out the below link for a storyboard (scroll through it) about all aspects of the park. At the end, there is an online survey for your input to guide the final design at access points, trail configuration, and natural play area elements. https://bit.ly/LewistonNaturePark

Welcome to Lewiston Public Works
The Department of Public Works (PW) is the only city department that actually affects every individual that lives, works, visits, or passes through the city every single day. Public Works is responsible for operating and maintaining all city infrastructures--from the water you use to brush your teeth to the sewers that carry away the waste water from your home; to the collection and disposal of solid waste and recycling material; to the roads, sidewalks, street lights, and traffic signals, Public Works operates and maintains all these complicated and extensive systems.
Things to Remember About Trash Collection
Trash & Single Stream Recycle Collection - With the exception of holidays (see below) you can rely on your weekly trash collection day, however, not necessarily at the same exact time each collection day. To be safe, please follow the City Ordinance which says,
“Trash & Single Stream Recyclable Waste needs to be curbside in suitable containers no sooner than 6:00 pm the day preceding the regular trash collection day and no later than 7:00 am of the regular trash collection day."
Holidays & Interruptions in Trash & Single Stream Recyclable Waste Collection - When your regular trash collection day falls on a major holiday (Fourth of July, Thanksgiving Day, Christmas Day, and New Years Day), your curbside residential trash collection will not be collected on that holiday. It, instead, will be collected on the following day. If your regular collection is on a Friday that is a major holiday, it will instead be collected on Saturday.
