Boston Works

The Boston Public Works Department

The Public Works Department manages the construction, maintenance, cleaning, and use of public infrastructure throughout the City. We manage streets, bridges, street lights, and pedestrian ramps. In addition, PWD provides core basic services essential to neighborhood quality of life, such as snow/ice control, trash and large dumpster rentals, and recycling collection, commercial hood cleaning, and street sweeping. Finally, the Department helps keep the rest of Boston City moving by managing the City’s vehicle fleet.
