The Town of North Haven has released information dealing its plan for contending with debris and fallen brush stemming from this weekend's tropical storm.
Starting tomorrow, August 30, the Department of Public works will be accepting unlimited quantities of brush and debris at the transfer station on Universal Drive near the intersection of Sackett Point Road.
The program will run through September 10, and the station will stay open Tuesdays through Saturdays from 7 a.m. to 12:45 p.m.
For larger debris, such as fallen branches or tree stumps, a curbside collection program will be put into place starting September 26. Residents are urged to keep such detritus off the street, and instead place items for pickup on the curb line.
“The Town of North Haven thanks its residents in advance for their patience as we address down power lines and trees which are tangled in power lines with the United Illuminating Company. Restoring power and making roadways clear for emergency vehicle passage is our first priority and we thank you all for understanding this” Freda said in a release issued this morning.
“Residents are asked to address as much of the Hurricane Irene debris collection and disposal themselves before relying on the Town's Department of Public Works and please, where you can, assist your neighbors especially those who are senior citizens and/or who are in need” he added.
Questions regarding the Disposal and Collection of Hurricane Irene Debris may be directed to the office of the Department of Public Works located at 5 Linsley Street, North Haven or by calling (203) 239-5321, extension 750.
