For Residents Living Along State-Maintained Roads:
Starting immediately property owners abutting state-maintained roads may place all tree-related debris from Winter Storm Alfred five feet from the edge of the pavement for pickup in the coming days/weeks.
Officials ask residents not to place the debris near, or obstruct access to, any utility poles or wires, fire hydrants, mailboxes or overhanging trees.
The State’s Debris Management Program was developed to expedite debris cleanup related to storms like Alfred. The debris management contractor will continue to pick up the stockpiled debris through December 15.
Only tree-related debris will be picked up at properties along state-maintained roads.
A schedule of towns where pickups will take place will be posted as that schedule develops.
For Residents Not Living Along State-Maintained Roads:
Residents must bring storm debris to the Southbury Transfer Station. Due to the unprecedented damage of Winter Storm Alfred the town will be opening the Transfer Station extended hours.
Throughout this week, until Saturday, November 12 and then again next week, November 14 through November 19, residents will be allowed to bring storm debris brush to the Transfer Station for free.
Residents are also able to get a waiver of the fee for a Burn Permit by contacting the office of the Fire Marshal at (203) 262-0620.
