  • Curbside collection of storm debris begins soon; submit pickup request online

    posted on 2/2/2023; updated 2/3/2023

    The City of Dover is contracting with an arborist to help clear public rights-of-way from low-hanging and downed branches and limbs from last week’s storm. 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.

    Curbside collection will be focused on City of Dover-owned public streets. Community Services will consider curbside collection of woody debris on private roads contingent on obtaining an indemnity release from the homeowner’s association that governs the private road. For more information on private road curbside pickup, contact Community Services at 603-516-6450.

    With an arctic cold front moving into Dover this Friday and Saturday, Dover Fire Chief Michael McShane urges everyone to take the necessary precautions to keep themselves and their loved ones safe.

    “It’s important to be aware of the dangers these cold temperatures can bring and to take the necessary steps to stay safe,” said Chief McShane. “Never leave a child or pet unattended in a car in the cold, and if you can, stay inside to avoid the cold and wind chill. If you must go outside, make sure you are dressed appropriately and cover your hands and face.”

    Dover Fire and Rescue recommends that to stay safe in the cold weather, people should be aware of the dangers of frostbite and hypothermia and know the signs and symptoms. He added it's also important to check on your family and friends during the cold weather, especially high risk populations, such as the elderly and children.
