They must be less than 8 feet in length and less than 8 inches in diameter.

- Our crews will be in your neighborhood approximately every two weeks to collect loose leaf piles. Consolidating small piles of leaves into larger piles will help expedite leaf pick up. During this time, crews will continue to pick up yard debris every week if it is placed in a bag/container and separated from your leaf piles. It is important to keep leaves and yard debris separated, as yard debris can damage our leaf vacuum. Please note that loose brush will not be picked up during this time.
- Leaves are collected by quadrant (NW, NE, SE, SW). Crews move clockwise throughout the town. Quadrant maps and street lists are displayed at the bottom of this page.

Wood and leaf mulch generated by the Town’s yard debris recycling program are available FREE of charge to residents who visit the East Street storage site adjacent to the Little League fields.
- There will be no collection on Memorial Day and Labor Day. Schedules will shift by one day following the holiday.
- We encourage residents to place yard debris behind the curb or gutter to avoid blocking drainage pathways or impeding traffic flow in your neighborhood.
- Yard debris must be out by 6AM on your scheduled day to ensure proper collection.
- If you live on a private drive, please take materials to the nearest public street.
- We do not collect stumps, rocks, stones, metal, lumber, plastics, glass, fencing or waste materials. PLEASE NO SOD.
- Our schedule may vary slightly due to weather conditions and volume of debris. We appreciate your patience.
Yard debris generated by hired contractors must be removed as part of their service.
