Message from The Highway Department

The Highway Department requests that residents do not rake leaves from their private property into the roadway. The Highway Department will pick up leaves that fall on the roadside only. We will not pick up leaves that have been raked from private property to the roadside.

Leaves that are raked onto the roadway can clog the street drainage catch basins and cause flooding problems. This creates an extremely dangerous condition for which residents may be held liable.

The Board of Health provides a free year-round leaf drop-off area for residents at the Transfer Station on Bedford Street, provided that you have a current vehicle sticker issued from the Board of Health.

Transfer Station hours of operation are Mondays, Tuesdays, Fridays from 9 AM to 4 PM, Saturdays from 7 AM to 2 PM, and Sundays from 8 AM until Noon. Leaves must be emptied from plastic bags.
