Town will pick up tree limbs

Facing the aftermath of last week's snow storm, town residents have a way to dispose of fallen branches and tree debris left over from the heavy wet snow that damaged some trees.

The town's Public Works Department will pick up tree limbs and debris as part of regular trash day service. Limbs must be cut to a maximum of four feet long, tied in a bundle no larger than two feet in diameter and weighing no more than 50 lbs. The bundle must be bound with string or twine sufficient to permit the bundle to be lifted and placed into the garbage truck.

"After major tree-damaging storms, the town accepts debris and limbs with regular garbage pickup" Public Works Director Jim Hoy. "We encourage residents to cut and bundle limbs and set them curbside for pickup."

Town residents don't have to call the public works department for pickup. Trash crews will pick up the bundled debris on the day of regular garbage pickup.

"As an alternative, residents can haul the debris and limbs to one of the many local recycling companies that convert the limbs to mulch," said Hoy.

Town residents with questions may contact the Public Works Department at 825-0285.
