Residential Curbside Pickup of Brush and Branches to Begin November 13

Remember, no leaves! Most of the shore areas are finished or finishing with debris pickup following Hurricane Sandy; general brush pickup is next.

 

Crews from the town's Public Works Department will pick up brush and tree debris, curbside in front of residents' homes, from Hurricane Sandy beginning Tuesday, Nov. 13.

No bags of leaves or loose leaves will be picked up. However, leaves can be taken to the transfer station on Fridays and Saturdays at no cost.

Please put all your brush and branches outside, at the curb, and crews will begin the process starting November 13th. Tree debris will be picked up ONE TIME only. Please do not bring any brush, limbs or any tree debris to the transfer station. The load will be refused.

Director of Public Works Peter Neff said that although the process begins on Nov. 13, it will not be finished in a day and your house may not be on the schedule the first day.

"Pick up may take a week or two to canvas the entire town, but once they go by your house that is it," he said.

We had a big storm surge across our whole lawn in which the leaves intermingled with all the crap from the water, I hope they still plan on picking it up, can anyone say if they are being more flexible to the areas that had flooding?

Catherine - as mentioned in previous articles, the shore areas had different needs and had different cleanup. Please call Pete Neff at the DPW for more information on your yard/home: 860-664-1100. Thanks.

The contractors we be instructed to pick up and separate the brush from the piles even if mixed. We have been in contact with the variuous associations in the highly impacted areas (flooded) and have been providing assistance to those areas with debris other than brush. Peter Neff Public Works

Hi Fay - I live on a dead end street - can I leave the brush and limbs on the lawn by the curb ? - I would rather leave it there so nobody drives into it at night and gets hurt - if it's okay. Thanks Much, Bruce Farmer

Bruce - sounds great. As close to the curb as you can place things makes it easier for the DPW to pick it up. Thanks!!
