Small limbs, leaves and other yard related debris can be placed at the curb for collection on Thursday and Friday by the Public Works Department.  Please do not place leaves in garbage bags, in a container or on a tarp as the Town has a leaf collection machine that will collect the leaves by a vacuum.

All limbs should be less than 60" in length.  Keep separate from leaves and grass clippings. 

DO NOT PLACE ANY yard waste in the street.  This causes clogged storm drains and will cause flooding.

All yard waste should be at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on Thursday morning.
