Got Debris? Here's What to Do with It
Living in New England we all can expect to be doing our share of raking this time of year, but Hurricane Sandy certainly added a whole new dimension to our fall clean-ups.
With all of the added debris, Interim Town Manager Bonnie Therrien reminds residents that debris should not be placed curbside. The Department of Public Works, located next to the North Branford Police Department on Route 22, is accepting debris beginning today.
North Branford and Northford residents can bring debris to Public Works with Therrien noting the best hours to bring it between 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., though if necessary, it can be dropped off until 5 p.m. Public Works will also be open on Saturday for debris drop-off.
Public Works will operate on these hours for at least one week.
Regular trash pick-up – no storm debris – is delayed by one day through the rest of the week with today picking up Wednesday's regularly scheduled routes, tomorrow picking up Thursday's and Saturday picking up Fridays. The regular schedule resumes on Monday, Nov. 5.
