A town-wide collection of the huge quantity of debris created by Tropical Storm Isaias will be made beginning Aug. 10.

Public Works will make one sweep through the town to collect storm debris that has been placed at the curb, Director John Phillips said.

“Simply pile debris neatly at the curb and we will take it from there,” Mayor Shari Cantor said in an Everbridge message. “You do not have to tie debris in bundles or place in bags.”

Yard waste, including storm debris, that has been put into a leaf bag, or brown yard waste bin will be collected normally as part of the town’s bi-weekly yard waste collection – on the same day as your collection of recyclable material.

Those who were not able to have trash or recycling pick-up last week because of a blocked road can call Paine’s at 860-844-3000 to have pick-up rescheduled.

The town’s Yard Waste & Recycling Center is also open for disposal, Monday through Friday, 7 a.m.-4:30 p.m., and Saturday 8 a.m-1 p.m. A yearly permit is required.
