Fall Leaf Pick-Up

Happy Fall from all of us in your Department of Public Works.  To the right you may download and view the Current Year Leaf Collection Schedule which includes your street name and the two dates when your  leaves will be collected.

Town Code - Leaves

Chapter 246 Article VI 246-32E of the town code states that leaves shall be placed in the streets no sooner than seven days prior to a scheduled or announced collection date and shall be  placed no closer than 10 ft. from any storm drain.  Please have your leaves in the street as close to the Sunday before your collection date as possible to assist us in our work.  Failure to follow the schedule will result in a warning letter and a possible summons.

Leaf Disposal Instructions

The department plans on making two passes through town (weather permitting), so your street should appear on the schedule twice. Please do the following:

  1. Find your street on the 2017 Leaf Collection Schedule
  2. Mark your calendar for your 2 street collection dates
  3. Place your leaves into the street on the weekend nearest your collection date

Important note: Do not wait until Monday to put your leaves into the street as  there is no guarantee that we will be on any particular street on any particular day.  

What if it Snows in the Days Prior to Your Collection Date?

A notice will be listed on the town's homepage and a warning will go out via email / text.  Be sure to sign-up for alerts by CLICKING HERE.

What if You Miss Your Collection Date or Don’t Want to Wait?  

You can bring your leaves to the town’s Recycling Center located on Plane Street.   Throughout the leaf collection season, the Recycling Center will be open  to accept leaves on the following dates and times:
