Leaf col­lec­tion to be­gin in late Novem­ber

The Middletown Press (Middletown, CT) - - NEWS - PRESS STAFF

CROMWELL — The an­nual leaf col­lec­tion will of­fi­cially be­gin the week of Nov. 26, but stops will be made at lo­ca­tions through­out town where leaf ac­cu­mu­la­tion is usu­ally the heav­i­est, ac­cord­ing to a re­lease.

Be­gin­ning on the Nov. 26, a reg­u­lar route sched­ule will be fol­lowed for leaves be­ing picked up curb­side:

⏩ Nov. 26 to 30, Con­necti­cut River to the east side of Main Street

⏩ Dec. 3 to 7, west side of Main Street to the east side of Wash­ing­ton Road

⏩ Dec. 10 to 14, west side of Wash­ing­ton Road to the Ber­lin town line

Th­ese are ap­prox­i­mate dates when town crews will be in th­ese ar­eas. They may change based on weather con­di­tions, quan­tity of leaves to be picked up and hol­i­days, ac­cord­ing to the town.

The high­way crew will not re­turn for ad­di­tional col­lec­tion un­til the en­tire town is col­lected once, and only if weather per­mits. Only un­bagged leaves will be ac­cepted. Res­i­dents are asked to not place leaves in the road­way, and to re­mem­ber only leaves will be picked up. Peo­ple are asked not to mix leaves with branches and other de­bris be­cause they will not be ac­cepted.

The town will do it’s best to com­plete the leaf pickup pro­gram as long as weather con­di­tions per­mit, the re­lease said.

Res­i­dents can bring leaves to the Trans­fer Sta­tion on Shun­pike Road be­gin­ning im­me­di­ately. There, res­i­dents must empty bagged leaves in ar­eas des­ig­nated by town per­son­nel.
