Southie Christmas

September 1st is here, and you know what that means – it’s Moving Day in Southie aka Southie Christmas! The next few weeks are sure to promise lots of double-parked cars and moving vans, “no parking” moving permits (which residents will ignore), and trash galore!

You know what they say, “One man’s trash is another’s treasure.”  Maybe you’re in the market for a pre-owned couch, a broken vacuum cleaner, or maybe a “Live, Love, Laugh” sign. This day brings out the inner hoarder in all of us and makes us pass a pile of garbage and think, “Hmmm…maybe I could use that?”  You should follow Stooping Southie on Instagram! They’ve got the scoop on what neighbors are leaving curbside!

According to the real estate website RentHop, South Boston has the highest rate of moving permits issued in the City of Boston -more than Allston and Brighton.

If you have issues with trash or parking violations, you are highly encouraged to use the City’s 311 app.

If you have questions on how to reserve a moving permit, visit here! 

For residents looking to drop off their household textiles, including clothes, shoes, sneakers, bags, stuffed animals, bedding, and towels, the City of Boston has designated drop boxes for them.  You can get the scoop here! 

Just a reminder – you can’t throw out mattresses in the trash – they have to be picked up separately.  Learn more here!

    Let's not make Southie Christmas a thing. That's for Allston. Trash should be properly disposed of, not left on the sidewalk.
