Shrewsbury storm debris disposal information

Shrewsbury – To assist residents with the disposal of yard waste resulting from storm damage sustained from Tropical Storm Irene, a special curbside collection will take place starting on Sept. 6 and ending on Sept. 10 with leaves, grass and yard waste being picked up at the curb on regular rubbish collection days.

Residents are reminded that because of the Labor Day holiday (Monday, Sept. 5), the weekly collection will begin on a one-day delayed basis. The schedule will start with Monday's regular collection being completed on Tuesday, Tuesday's collection on Wednesday, Wednesday's collection on Thursday, Thursday's collection on Friday, and finishing with Friday's collection on Saturday.

Yard waste must be in the 30 gallon paper bags and lined up at the curb by 7 a.m. Brush will be picked up if it is no larger than three inches in diameter, cut into four-foot lengths and securely tied into bundles.

For any brush greater than three inches in diameter, homeowners should contact a tree removal contractor with the ability to chip brush on site. Homeowners who reside within the Asian Longhorned Beetle (ALB) regulated area (http://1.usa.gov/nmIsEr) should also make sure that the contractor hired is ALB compliant.  A list of ALB compliant contractors (residents should verify before signing or making any contract) can be found at http://bit.ly/pllph5.

There will also be a final drop off opportunity on Sat., Sept. 17 for leaves and grass at the Municipal Garage at 211 South Street which will be open from 7:30 a.m. to 11:30 am. This drop off is for leaves and grass only and will operate as follows: No brush is allowed in order to comply with ALB restrictions. Be prepared to show proof you are a resident of Shrewsbury (driver's license, for example). Do not leave any yard waste at the garage when the drop off is closed.

The Fall Yard Waste Pickup Program, when leaves, grass and yard waste will be picked up at the curb on regular rubbish collection days, will be held – Oct. 17 through 21; Oct. 31 through Nov. 4; Nov. 14 – 18; and Nov. 28 – Dec. 2.  

Yard waste must be in the 30 gallon paper bags and lined up at the curb by 7 a.m. Brush will be picked up if it is no larger than three inches in diameter, cut into four foot lengths and securely tied into bundles.
