Spring Leaf Collection
by Staff ◊ Apr 20, 2012
Public Works Director Craig Cesare announces the scheduling of Spring leaf and brush collection and reminds residents of the guidelines. Leaf and brush collection will begin Monday, April 23, and continue through Friday, May 18. All bagged leaves and bundled brush must be out by April 23 to guarantee pick up. As with all spring leaf pickups, only one sweep will be made through the Town. Bags put out after trucks have passed will not be picked up.
Leaves must be placed in paper bags (not plastic) and brush must be bundled and tied with string or twine. Bundles should weigh no more than 50 lbs, exceed no more than four feet in length, and contain no pieces in excess of four inches diameter. Bundled brush and bagged leaves should be placed curbside separate of each other and away from April bulk pickup items. No items should be placed in the street or in any way block a sidewalk. Disposal of root systems, grass clippings, and soil are prohibited.
Leaves cannot be picked up from private roads or from roads that have not been accepted into the Town road system. Residents on unaccepted and private roads may bring leaves to the Transfer Station during normal hours, Monday through Friday from 7:30am-3pm, as well as 8-11:45am on the first and third Saturdays of each month. Elderly and disabled residents may be eligible for assistance. Please contact Public Works at 203.287.2600 or the Help Desk at 203.287.7676 for further information.
