The Berlin Public Works Department has scheduled its final curbside leaf collection of the year for the week of Nov. 27 through Dec. 1.
Leaves must be in biodegradable brown paper bags (no plastic bags) and be placed at the curb on regular trash day during the specified week. Trash barrels and other containers may also be used. Bags and containers must be marked “leaves.” Grass clippings, yard waste and twigs cannot be mixed with leaves. Do not rake leaves into the gutter. It is a violation of the anti-litter ordinance and subject to a fine.
Leaves may also be disposed of at 19 Town Farm Lane, weekdays, 7:15 a.m. to 3:15 p.m.; Saturdays, through Nov. 25, 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Bags and containers must be emptied and removed from the Transfer Station. For more information, call 860-828-7022.
