Health Department


The East Longmeadow Health Department, under the guidance of the Board of Health, assesses and addresses the needs of the community in order to help protect and improve the health and quality of life of residents and visitors. This is carried out by the implementation of disease surveillance, health promotion, and environmental health inspections.

The Board of Health is responsible for making health policy for the Town of East Longmeadow, which includes:

  • Creating new policy
  • Holding public hearings on existing policies
  • Hearing variance requests for existing policies

The Health Department is responsible for implementing the policies of the Board. As a result, the Department is responsible for the enforcement of policy.

The East Longmeadow Board of Health will continue to conduct meetings remotely at this time.

Trash and recycling updates

July 13, 2022

East Longmeadow overflow trash bags ("Green Bags"), will temporarily be blue in color instead of the traditional green bags. The blue bags will include stickers that say "Town of East Longmeadow" for each blue bag in the roll. Stickers will be required on each bag when it is out on the curb to be picked up. Both green and blue bags will be picked up by Casella during this time until we receive our green bags again. If you have any questions, call the Health Dept. at 413-525-5400 x 1106. (Pictures below)
