The Department of Public Works will soon be conducting its Annual Spring Cleanup for residential properties. The only items that will be picked up are bagged leaves, grass, weeds, sticks, small branches and other organic yard material in biodegradable paper yard waste bags. Brush must be no more than 4 feet in length with limbs no greater than 5 inches in diameter, and the weight of each bundle may not exceed 40 pounds. Please tie the bundles with string or light rope. Do not use wire, metal strapping or plastic rope.
A maximum of one truck load per household will be picked up. Please have your load ready at the beginning of your pickup week. Your spring cleanup week is determined by the day your curbside rubbish pickup falls on. Please note that your yard waste:
- Will not be picked up with the garbage truck
- Must be curbside by 7:00 am on Monday morning of your spring cleanup week.
- Must be in biodegradable paper yard waste bags, which can be purchased at grocery and home improvement stores (plastic bags will not be accepted for pickup)
If your regular rubbish pickup is on Monday or Wednesday, your Spring Cleanup week will be the week of April 10 through April 14, 2017.
If your regular rubbish pickup is on Thursday or Friday, your Spring Cleanup week will be the week of April 17 through April 21, 2017.
All yard waste will picked up curbside by a separate truck.
If you have in excess of one truckload of yard waste or you miss your collection week you may bring the remainder of your yard waste to the transfer station. The Town will not make extra trips to pick up your waste if you missed the collection day. In addition, the Town will not pick up appliances, furniture, tires, etc. These items may be brought to the Town’s Solid Waste Facility on Tuesday and Saturdays. There are fees for certain items. A residential Solid Waste Facility Permit is required.
