If you're looking to pick up a new recycling or compost bin from the Wilmington Department of Public Works, you'll be heading to a new location. 

The Wilmington Department of Public Works administrative offices have moved to 115 Andover St. in an effort to consolidate public works operations. 

The new office will offer residents a central location to obtain recycling and compost bins, street opening permits, water connection permits, hydrant use permits and public works sign offs on building and occupancy permits.

Questions regarding trash and recycling, water, sewer drainage, pot holes, trees and other DPW related activities should also be relayed to the new Andover Street office.

The move of DPW offices comes as part of the effort by Town Manager Jeff Hull to consolidate public works administration by merging the Water and Sewer Division with the Department of Public Works.

The consolidation comes after the announcement earlier this summer of Wilmington DPW Superintendent Donald Onusseit's retirement.

Former Water and Sewers Superintendent Michael Wood has replaced Onusseit as Public Works Superintendent. 

"Full integration of water and sewer into the other DPW operations will create opportunities for greater efficiencies in the use of resources," Hull said, announcing Onusseit's retirement earlier this year.
