City Announces ‘Carry In, Carry Out’ Holiday Park Policy

The Jamestown Parks, Recreation & Conservation Department announced this morning it is adopting a “Carry In, Carry Out” garbage disposal policy for the Independence Day holiday weekend in the City Parks system.

Mayor Eddie Sundquist said, “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.”

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.
