JAMESTOWN — The Jamestown Parks, Recreation & Conservation Department says it’s adopting a “Carry In, Carry Out” garbage disposal policy for the Independence Day holiday weekend in the City Parks system.

“We’re encouraging those who use our parks facilities this long weekend to dispose of garbage at home in an effort to help us keep our parks looking great,” Mayor Eddie Sundquist said.

Trash receptacles are still located in all parks but minimal trash services are available. Restrooms are also closed for the season.

In accordance with New York State guidelines regarding COVID-19, park users are to limit gathering in groups no larger than 50 people and to have masks available to wear when social distancing is not possible.

This week, city officials announced that park playgrounds have reopened following the COVID-19 shutdown.
