The contractor will also collect and process limbs and branches from Dover properties placed curbside as time allows. Work is anticipated to begin Wednesday, Feb. 8.

    Submit curbside collection requests through Community Services’ Service Request Portal at service.dover.nh.gov/RequestPortal, which can also be accessed through the city’s home page, www.dover.nh.gov, by selecting the “Contact Us” button on the upper right-hand corner. Submissions create a trackable digital work order.

For more information on private road curbside pickup, contact Community Services at 603-516-6450.
