Curbside leaf collection begins Nov. 4

Curbside leaf collection begins Nov. 4


The Berlin Public Works Department wishes to inform residents of the following curbside leaf collection dates. Leaves will be picked up on, or near, your trash day during the weeks of Nov. 4 - 8, Nov. 18 - 22 and Dec. 2 - 6.

Residents wishing to have leaves picked up at the curb, must put them in biodegradable brown paper bags and leave them at the curb on their regular trash day during the specified week. Plastic bags are not permitted. Keep all leaf bags well away from your automated trash container. Grass clippings, yard waste and twigs cannot be mixed with leaves.

Do not rake leaves into the gutter. This is a violation of the anti-litter ordinance, and subject to a fine.

Those who wish to dispose of leaves on their own, may bring them to the drop-off area at 19 Town Farm Lane (off Massirio drive), Monday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., and Saturday's throughout October, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be extended Saturday hours Oct. 19 and 26 and throughout November, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Bags and containers must be emptied and removed from the drop-off area inside the Transfer Station.

The Transfer Station will be closed in observance of Thanksgiving, Thursday, Nov. 21 and Friday, Nov. 22.
