Solid Waste Removal
Limbs and Branches

The Department of Public Works begins limb removal the first week of April and continues every week until the end of November.

Limbs need to be placed in the parkway between the curb and sidewalk. Limbs should not be placed in the street, nor should they be placed on the sidewalk or around a fire hydrant. The branch pile needs to be stacked neatly at the curb with the cut end pointing toward the street or, if they are too long, place them in the parkway with the cut end of the limbs pointing in the flow of traffic. Do not put anything else in the limb pile. Putting items in the limb pile other than limbs may cause serious damage to the equipment or the operators of the machine. Again, placing logs, rocks, bricks, railroad ties, or any material other than limbs in limb piles can and has caused injury to operators. 

Also, smaller piles of limbs and branches may be placed in your garbage can. Please make sure you only put bare limbs in the garbage can, as leaves create a greater fire hazard inside of the garbage truck.


The Department of Public Works removes leaves during the months of April, October, November, and December (weather permitting). 

Please be patient and all leaves will be picked up. Leaves need to be placed in the parkway, being careful to keep them off the street and away from fire hydrants, storm water drains, and off the sidewalks. Be sure that only leaves are placed in the leaf pile, as anything else may cause harm to the leaf vacuum or the operators of the machine.

Please do not place limbs, rocks, bricks, or any other materials in the leaf pile. Harm can be done to the leaf vacuum and operator.

Removal Schedule and Maps

For planning and pickup of solid waste, the Town is divided into four areas. Similar to garbage removal, each area has a specific day of the week for leaf or limb pickup. During the week of Thanksgiving, north of US 30 will be done on Tuesday, November 20th and south of US 30 will be done on Wednesday, November 21st.
