CITY TO BEGIN SPRING PICK-UP PROGRAM IN APRIL
The city runs a collection program twice a year providing free-of-chargeyard debris pick-up. This program is scheduled to begin on Monday, April 18th, and will run for 6 weeks through Friday, May 27th.
Yard Debris or “green waste” includes leaves, weeds, flowers, and non woody roots and shrubs. ONLY yard debris bagged in PAPER LEAF BAGS with NO TAPE can be left at curbside in front of residences for the city’s Highway Department to pick-up.
Small tree trimmings/branches less than 4 inches in diameter will be collected and MUST BE BUNDLED with twine only. These will be picked up separately during the same period.
NO TAPE OF ANY KIND ON BAGS,
NO PLASTIC BAGS,
NO GRASS, ROCKS, DIRT, GARBAGE OR ANIMAL WASTE IN BAGS,
The Yard Debris Pickup Program is divided by I-84; Section A is south of I-84 (zip code 06810) and Section B is north of I-84 (zip code 06811). Section A will be picked up the week of April 198h through April 22nd and then move to Section B the next week. This cycle will be repeated through May 27th. Please remember: the Highway Department tries to get to as many streets during a week as possible, however, there are times when pick up will be held over until the following scheduled visit to your zip code.

The hours are Monday through Friday, 7:00 am through 3:30 pm. Saturdays from 7:30 am to 12noon. Closed on Sundays.
