Town To Begin Storm Debris Cleanup

Annual Greenwich leaf collection program delayed as cleanup from Hurricane Sandy continues.


The cleanup of debris—branches, logs, stumps— is scheduled to begin Tuesday by the Greenwich Department of Public Works and its contractors.

The crews will collect the organic debris from the town's right of way on Nov. 13. And for residents who want to haul their own debris to the Holly Hill Transfer Station, there are extended hours for disposal. Holly Hill will be open on Saturday, from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. and on Monday, Nov. 12 from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m.

The storm cleanup effort will delay the start of the town's fall leaf collection program.

The start of the Leaf Collection Program has been delayed until Dec. 3. Leaf collection crews will provide only one collection per leaf collection section.  Leaves in all collection sections must be placed at the roadside for pick up by Dec. 3 to ensure.

This program will be confined to leaves only. Sticks, branches and other types of storm debris will not be included in the collection. Residents in the collection areas are requested to rake leaves into piles at the shoulder of the road, avoiding raking leaves onto the pavement, sidewalks, catch basin grates and open channels, which cause drainage and flooding problems during periods of rain. As an alternate, residents may choose to place leaves in biodegradable paper bags and place them for collection at the curb. Plastic bags of leaves will not be collected.

Leaf collection will be conducted in accordance to numeric section scheduling.  Twenty four (24) hour Leaf Collection Scheduling Information is available by calling the Leaf Collection Hotline Number: (203) 618-7698.

Street Names with corresponding Section Numbers can be obtained at the Town of Greenwich Website: http://greenwichct.virtualtownhall.net/Public_Documents/GreenwichCT_DPW/GreenwichCT_Highway/leaves.
