The Town of Plainville announced leaf collection will begin Monday, Oct. 26 and run through Monday Nov. 30 (weather permitting).
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and associated health concerns, the town will not be utilizing temporary workers this leaf season. Given this, we are asking your assistance in getting leaves to the curbline as early as possible.
Leaves should be brought to the curbline. Leaves should not be placed on sidewalks or in the road in case of an early snowstorm. We understand not all trees shed their leaves early, but every leaf pile picked up early in the season helps us complete the season before the snow flies. Avoiding leaves in the road, and in particular snowy leaves, makes the road safer.
The scheduled order of areas to be covered on the first collection (Subject to change): Central Area, West Main Street Area, Farmington Avenue Area, South End/Redstone Area, Shuttlemeadow Area, Arcadia Avenue Area, Metacomet Area, Northwest Area, Unionville Avenue Area.
Every effort will be made to keep you informed on the progress of leaf removal. Questions should be directed to the Public Works Office, 860-793-0221, ext. 7176. The office can be reached Monday through Wednesday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., Thursdays 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Fridays 8 a.m. to noon.
Rake only leaves to the curb. Grass clippings, sticks and stone will not be taken. If you live on a street with an island, do not place leaves on the island.
Drop-off center hours will be extended for the month of November for leaf disposal only. Hours for November will be Saturdays 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. for leaf and regular debris disposal and Monday through Friday 2 to 4 p.m. for leaf disposal only.
