Public Works

The Wilmington Department of Public Works is broken down into multiple divisions and is responsible for maintaining the Town’s highways, drainage system, trees, parks, cemeteries, water supply, sanitary sewers, refuse, and recycling. The Department maintains more than 110 miles of roadway and associated infrastructure.  The Public Works Department also oversees the curbside recycling and solid waste collection program.
