2016 FALL LEAF PROGRAM TO BEGIN:
MONDAY, OCTOBER 31st
Please do not delay, get your leaves curbside.
PILES SHOULD ONLY CONSIST OF LOOSE LEAVES, NO BRANCHES OR BRUSH.
For vehicle and pedestrian safety, do not place leaves on roadways.
The Highway Department will be starting loose leaf collection on Monday, 10/31/16 in the Paradowski area. We will then continue to move down that side of Route 50.
Zone One: Kingsbury to Sunnyside
Zone Two: Bancker to Scotchbush
Zone Three: Charlton-Droms-Swaggertown-Spring-Vley areas; West Glen
Due to the unpredictability of the weather you are requested to bag loose leaves after your first scheduled pick-up has occurred. A heavy snowfall may impede a second pick-up by the Town as our machines are not equipped to handle wet, icy leaves. The town will pick bagged leaves for a second pass as needed.
As always, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact our office at 382-1406.
Thank you, Tom Coppola, Highway Supt/Commissioner
