Public Works


The City of Cranston Department of Public Works is responsible for the care, maintenance and control of all phases of public works projects and facilities.

Cranston residents are urged to take advantage of these services offered when the need arises. Services and contact agencies are broken down into sub-pages, as linked to the left.

Due to current staffing issues with the City's outside vendor, Waste Management, there is a significant ongoing delay with yard waste pickup throughout the City. It is requested that you leave your yard waste curbside for pickup, even after your normal day of pickup has gone by.

Waste Management is making every effort to add additional staff for this work and will also have trucks running on Saturday to try and catch up. The City is also penalizing Waste Management for this lapse in the contract terms and will continue to do so until the matter is resolved.
