Schedule of Curbside Pickup of Brush & Storm-Related Debris

Do not bring items to the town's transfer station on Nod Road - you will be turned away. Crews will begin pickup this week and next, depending upon where you live.



Will be open on Friday, Nov. 2 and Saturday, Nov. 3, regular hours of 7:15am to 3:15pm. This is for household garbage and recycleables only.  No storm-related debris or garbage.



  • DO NOT bring brush, limbs or any tree debris to the transfer station. The load will be refused.

Put all tree debris outside, curbside. Pickup of brush will begin no sooner than next Thursday. Tree debris will be picked up ONE TIME only.


OTHER DEBRIS (construction, furniture, rugs, wet items, etc.):

  • DO NOT bring any STORM related debris to the Transfer Station. The load will be rejected. Storm related debris in the areas that were flooded by tidal surge are to be placed at curb side. They will be picked up starting next week.



  • Starting late today (Nov. 1) or tomorrow morning, crews will start the initial cleanup of debris. This is NOT the only time we will provide cleanup assistance.  Over the period of the next several weeks, periodic cleanups will occur. Please check with your respective Association leaders for additional information.



  • Attempts will be made to place one or two docks in service by the end of today, Nov. 1.
  • DO NOT bring any debris to shore at this time. Arrangements will be made to provide dumpsters and assistance at the Town Marina. Check with your Association for information.
  • Town representatives will attempt to get out to the island on Nov. 1 to survey damage.



  • For any tree hazard situations in your yard - please call the Department of Public Works at 860-664-1100.  Be prepared to give your name, address, contact information and a brief description of the hazard.

Try not to be like the person on Partridge Lane that felt blocking half a lane with their pile was OK to do.

Oh and I am wondering if most of this debris will be going to Cashman again??? :-/

It is nearly the end of November and the tree debris and branches from Sandy still remain in my immediate neighborhood south of Route 1. To my knowledge there hasn't any attempt to remove this unsightly debris. Is there any timetable for pickup? In contrast the cleanup from Irene was prompt and organized. The holidays are coming and this does not put the town in a favorable light for visitors.

After 5 weeks of waiting, we finally had the brush picked up. All the trash/debris from the storm surge was left. Is there any plan to pick up the lumber, plywood, driftwood, lamps, tires, fence posts, and other bits and bobs that made their way ashore?
