Leaf Pickup is Under Way
Thursday, November 17, 2011
The Town leaf collection is underway and takes place over four weeks ending the week of December 5, 2011 for all neighborhoods outside of Greenfield Hill. There is no specific daily pickup schedule. Each week bags must be curbside by Monday by 6:00 AM to assure pick-up some time that week.
Leaves must be in biodegradable paper bags. Do NOT seal the paper bags. The following will NOT be picked up: loose leaves, brush, branches, wood, grass or leaves in plastic bags. Bags placed outside of the Town right-of-way (along driveways, inside stonewalls or fences for example) will NOT be picked up. Greenfield Hill residents should telephone the Town Garage at 256-3177 on Monday, November 21, 2009 to arrange for leaf pickup before Thanksgiving and Greenfield Hill residents may call the following week of November 28, 2011 for one additional pick-up.
Please do not rake leaves into the gutter or street so that the leaves don’t block the catch basins. Also, the town is asks that you make an effort to keep the catch basin grates in the vicinity of your home clear of leaves and debris to prevent local flooding.
