City sand piles available for residential use

The Department of Public Services (DPS) announces that sand piles have been placed at three locations around the city: Barker Road Fire Station, Peck’s Road Fire Station, and off Root Place on the right in the parking lot.

Sand will be available for pickup by Pittsfield residents for their own personal use throughout the winter season. Residents are requested to limit their pickups to 50 pounds (one 5-gallon pail) per visit.

Users of these piles are requested to report suspected abuse (loading of pickup trucks, etc.) to the DPS Highway Division office at 499-9314.
