Spring and Fall Cleanups are curbside collection services for debris and brush that are provided to town recycling and refuse customers. Please note this program is not intended to collect waste from contractors with major construction and/or demolition debris. Collection occurs in both the spring and fall. Exact dates will be announced each year via the My Waste App, website, WTOB, Citizens Alert, and flyers. If you can fit your cleanup debris into your trash cart, please do so. It is difficult to use heavy equipment on small piles. Thank you!
