South Portland Parking Ticket Amnesty Program

In an effort to get citizens current on unpaid parking tickets, the City is offering an amnesty program from now, through December 15th. For any parking tickets paid now through December 15th, the City will waive the delinquent penalty fee associated with the ticket. Under the present parking ordinance, tickets delinquent after 15 days from issuance, are doubled (delinquent penalty fee). Come in and pay your tickets by Thursday, December 15th in order to avoid the penalty portion of the bill. Citizens and businesses should be aware, in order to register your vehicle, all outstanding parking tickets need to be paid.

Rubbish and Recycling
Leaf pick-up is conducted annually during a 4-week period in the fall, usually in November. Leaves should be placed in biodegradable paper bags (no plastic bags, please), and left curbside until collected. Collections will be picked up by Public Works crews, not Pine Tree Waste. Please set leaf bags and trees curbside, but away from your trash barrels. If you should miss the collection dates, leaves can be brought to the Transfer Facility, free of charge. Read More
