Trucks to pick up the branches and other debris left by Hurricane Sandy won't be coming until Dec. 19 for some, but the village is asking all residents to have the items on the curb by Monday, Dec. 3.
According to the final pickup schedule, contractors and village workers will be out in Area B from Dec. 3-6; Area D from Dec. 10-13; Area C on Dec. 17, 18; and Area A on Dec. 19.
Residents are instructed to place brush and debris between the curb and sidewalk, explicitly not in the street or jumbled in with the leaves. Leaf collection will not be interrupted by the debris clearing.
Brush and debris do not have to be bundled, tied or put in a container as they normally would, though Village Manager Ken Gabbert stressed they should be cut in lengths as close to 3 feet x 2 ½ inches diameter.
Residents can also keep larger items in the back yard until yard waste services resumes again in April. The Recycling Center is also open Monday through Saturday and will accept debris.
