Residents can schedule a brush/branch curbside pickup by calling the Public Works Department at (860) 584-6125. Brush/branch collections are scheduled for Wednesdays. During holiday weeks, brush/branch collections are done on Thursday.
We do not pick up brush/branches in the winter. You may make a brush/branch collection appointment during Yard Waste season (typically the first week of April through mid-November, weather-permitting, and sometimes extended into December). The 2021 yard waste season will begin Monday, April 5, 2021 and will run through Friday, December 3, 2021 (weather-permitting, subject to change).
Branches must be less than six inches in diameter and cut to maximum 4-foot lengths. The total brush/branch pile cannot exceed 4 ft. x 4 ft. x 4 ft. (length x width x height). Branches/brush must be tied in secure bundles that one person can lift.
Sorry, we cannot collect loose piles of brush/branches.
Please do not place brush/branches at the curb until 24 hours before your scheduled collection date.
