The Town’s loose leaf collection equipment operates from November through December. Additional collections may be scheduled in January if necessary, and again in April for spring clean-up. The collection runs on a scheduled route through the Town as weather permits (a.k.a. not raining or snowing). Leaves raked to the curb are collected without the need to bag, and many residents enjoy this bag-free option.
If you wish to schedule your leaf raking close to when the leaf vacuum truck will be in your area, determine what section you are in and have your leaves at the curb by the dates shown below. Please note that actual collection of your leaves may be several days after the dates listed, depending on weather and other factors.
Section C - east of US Route 1: Monday, Nov. 5 and Monday, Dec. 3
Section A - west side of railroad tracks: Thursday, Nov. 8 and Friday, Dec. 7
Section B - east side of railroad tracks to US Route 1: Thursday, Nov. 15 and Friday, Dec. 14
When raking your leaves, please avoid raking leaves into the street, the gutters, or drainage ditches, and be sure that the leaf piles do not contain twigs, limbs, or other heavy objects that may damage the leaf collection equipment or/and delay the collection of your leaves.
If at all possible, please refrain from parking on the street when leaf collection is scheduled to take place in your area. This will assist the street crews in their leaf collection efforts and will help to protect your car from the dust and debris generated by the leaf collecting equipment.
