Spring cleanup is April 19 - 23. This event helps residents dispose of many wood items. Acceptable items include:
Yard waste (leaves, grass clippings, etc.), at curbside, placed in biodegradable PAPER bags or in reusable containers*
Brush and Branches (cut to a maximum of 4 feet in length, stacked neatly, no more than 3 feet tall)
Waste wood or lumber
Wood bed frames (no mattresses, no box springs)
Wood lawn furniture (no cushions)
Wood storm windows.
Wooden items are collected during spring clean-up ONLY. This is NOT designed for large quantities such as major renovation projects.
*No single container shall be over 32 gallons or 50 pounds.
Unacceptable items include garbage or trash, clearing of vacant lots, any metal or plastic objects, appliances, televisions, upholstered furniture, mattresses, rugs, tires, batteries, motor oil, fuels, propane tanks, barrels, drums, stumps, sod, pet waste, paints, pesticides, wood preservatives, and debris left by private contractors.
Yard waste must be placed in biodegradable PAPER bags or in reusable containers*, or piled neatly along the sides of the road, not so high or so wide as to obstruct roadways or line of sight and not in the roadway itself.
Placing debris in the roadway constitutes a violation of the Vehicle and Traffic Law as well as creates a hazardous situation for pedestrian, bicycle, and vehicular traffic. Please make sure that storm sewer inlets are also kept clean of leaves and branches to ensure proper drainage.
The Town no longer sells paper yard waste bags; they are available for comparable prices at many local businesses including Phillips Hardware, Hannaford, Price Chopper, Curtis Lumber, Stewarts, Lowes, Walmart and more.
