The Department of Public Works announces that sand piles have been placed at four locations around the city:

Barker Road Fire Station; Peck’s Road Fire Station; Hubbard Avenue, Walmart parking lot at Berkshire Crossing; and Williams Street Plaza.

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 five-gallon pail) per visit.

Users of these piles are requested to report suspected abuse (loading of pickup trucks, etc.) to the DPW Highway Division office at (413) 499-9314.
