Garbage Trucks


Safe and clean handling of household and commercial garbage, fish waste and other trash is important to prevent a source of food for rodents and litter on the streets of Gloucester. The Gloucester Board of Health has adopted regulations titled, "To Control The Transportation of Fish, Fish Offal, Garbage, etc., or Other Offensive Substances (PDF)" which requires the licensing of all garbage trucks transporting waste in Gloucester.
