The Department of Public Works (DPW) is a town service organization with an overall Mission to maintain and preserve the Town of Cohasset's property, parks, and open space, along with the public way infrastructure which includes streets, sidewalks, signs, and catch basins. The DPW works together with various departments of the Town Government to accomplish these maintenance goals.
Aside from Town wide maintenance and preservation, the DPW is responsible for operating the Recycling Transfer Station in which they explore cost effective and environmentally responsible ways of recycling and disposal of refuse. The DPW helps protects the environment and maintains public health and safety standards through the management of road conditions and other variables that seasonal changes bring.
The Department of Public Works is responsible, but not limited to, the following:
Maintenance and repair of streets, sidewalks, and storm drainage systems
Maintenance and repair of vehicles and service equipment
Maintenance of parks, athletic fields, cemeteries, and off-street parking facilities
Sales and records of cemetery lots
Transfer of public refuse and recyclables
Sales of blue pay-per-throw bags
