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, First Selectman Michael Freda issued the following press releases:
Debris and Leaf Pickup in North Haven
All residential storm debris, which has resulted from Hurricane Sandy, will be collected along with the annual Fall Leaf Collection Program starting next week, Nov. 5.
Residents who are clearing storm debris are advised to place all debris next to the leaf piles at the curb but not in the street and please do not mix the piles together as separate crews will address the pick‐ups.
The Department of Public Works will be collecting storm debris placed at the curb on or before the same week as the designated leaf collection schedule through Dec. 1.
The leaf collection schedule can be found on the Town of North Haven’s website. The Town reminds residents to not place any storm debris or leaves onor near catch basins.
Transfer Station is Open
The Town of North Haven’s Transfer Station, which is located on Universal Drive near the intersection of Sackett Point Road, will remain open from 7 a.m. to 12:45 p.m. through November 10, 2012 for the disposal of household wastes as well as storm related debris resulting from Hurricane Sandy.
Residents, with proof of residency, will NOT be required to provide Transfer Station Passes for entry to the Transfer Station through Nov. 10. All residents should note that no commercial vehicles will be allowed in the facility.
