Fall Leaf Pickup (October-November):
The Highway Department canvasses the Town three times each Fall to pick up large piles of loose leaves. Leaves may be left loose and should be raked to the edge of your property. If you miss the fall pickup, your leaves may be placed into paper bags or boxes for the regular pickup. See the work calendar to locate crews during fall leaf season.
Placing leaves in the road is hazardous and illegal! Please just rake them to the edge of your property.
Pick up Schedule May Vary:
In general, the scheduled pickup days are consistent with the above zone/day, however the brush crew may be ahead or behind schedule based on the workload… In this case, we anticipate when this happens the crew will remain ahead or catch back up within a few days... In most cases we should be able to get around town within a few days of the scheduled day allowing people to place their bags out at any time during the week… This will help those who find it difficult to put all of their yard waste out within a single day…
The Town Highway Department recycles and composts everything picked up. The Town’s composting facility is located at 4334 Milton Avenue, at the Highway Department complex. Residents may dispose of materials for composting or pick up compost for their own use between the hours of 7:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., Monday through Friday. During the summer months, these services are also available on Saturdays from 7:00 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. Compost grinding is available for residents’ use free of charge.
Leaves and brush are picked up on a rotating schedule during the months of April through October. Loose Leaves are picked up during the fall and spring seasons (October- November, April 15th - May 15th) Please bag them for all other times.
The leaves and brush should be placed at the edge of your property in large paper bags, boxes, or buckets no heavier than 20Lbs each. (nothing in plastic bags will be picked up). Larger piles will be noted and slated for later pickup with grapple equipment.
The Highway Department does not pick up grass clippings or mulch, however you may drop them off at the 4334 Milton Ave in the designated area. Please no plastic or other non-biodegradables.
Brush limbs should be no greater than five feet in length, or having a diameter of six inches or more, with no metal or other materials attached to them.
The Highway Department picks up on a rotating schedule from Zone 1 through Zone 5 as highlighted on the interactive mapping (See interactive map)
If your container (bag) has been marked with white paint, or a sticker placed on it, it has been identified by our crew as containing items that we do not pick up. Your container (bag) will not be picked up until the items are removed bagged properly without grass, dirt, mulch, plastic or other non-biodegradable materials as identified.
Please do not put yard waste or leaves in the road; it is hazardous and illegal! This includes loose leaf pickup seasons as well.
Note: Municipal Law Chapter 50S50.24(C) prohibits the Highway Department from picking up yard waste produced by a commercial contractor. Any such yard waste must be removed by the contractor or the homeowner. The Highway Department will only remove yard waste produced by the homeowner, which meets the requirements outlined above.
