Public Works


Our goal at Public Works is to provide the services needed to Northport citizens in an efficient, effective and timely manner. Our crews are constantly striving to improve our city and help it to become a more desirable community for its residents. Public Works currently has six divisions within the department that all work together to accomplish our goals.

Garbage Guidelines

Please help keep our sanitation workers healthy and safe by following a few guidelines:

  • Bag all garbage.
  • Do not place loose items in your garbage cart.
  • Do not place garbage bags on top of the cart or beside the cart. The garbage cart is the shield that protects these workers!
  • Double bag any leaking waste.
  • Place any sharp medical waste, such as needles inside a sealed, rigid container, and then inside a garbage bag.

Thank you for understanding and please help us spread the word!
