Debris Collection Tips
When cleaning and clearing debris, residents are asked to follow these guidelines:
• Separate vegetative debris (branches, leaves, etc.) from any household debris (construction and demolition debris like tile, carpet, drywall, etc. will NOT be collected)
• Do not place debris in plastic bags (paper bags are allowed). Debris in plastic bags will NOT be collected.
• Craft paper bags are OK for smaller pieces of debris
• Pile smaller pieces of debris on top of larger pieces
• Debris should be in pieces no larger than 12 feet in length.  Cut larger
diameter pieces (>12 inches) into 6 foot lengths
• Place piles at least three feet from mailboxes, utility meters, sign posts, and hydrants
• Place piles no further than five feet from the road
• Do not place debris piles directly under power lines
• Try to consolidate piles with neighbors
