Yard Waste and Leaf Collection Program Changes

Effective October 1, 2012, the Town will enact the following changes to its yard waste and leaf collection services:

Yard Waste:

Residential yard waste is collected weekly. Tree limbs and brush must be cut into 6-foot lengths, no larger than 6 inches in diameter. Limit brush piles should not exceed 3 cubic yards in size (about the size of a small pickup truck load). Excess yard waste may be collected for a minimum $25 fee

The Town will NOT collect commercially cut brush or yard waste, lot clearing debris, or yard waste deposited by private contractors, landscapers or tree companies.

Leaf Collection:

Leaves will be collected weekly from October through December, and twice monthly throughout the remainder of the year. Click here to view the collection schedule. Additional leaf pickups can be scheduled at other times throughout the year, subject to a minimum $25 fee.

Leaves must be bagged in biodegradable paper bags. Click here for a list of local vendors.

The Town will not collect leaves collected and bagged by private contractors, landscaping contractors or tree companies. Plastic leaf bags will no longer be accepted after October 1, 2012.
