Homeowners are reminded each house is limited to one truckload of brush. Please stack brush for easy and efficient pick-up following the guidelines below. The town crew will make ONE PASS ONLY on each street. 

Brush Pile Specifications:

 • Piles cannot be stacked more than 4 feet tall.
 • Brush must be less than 8 foot in total length.
 • Trunks or branches are to be no larger than 4 inches in diameter.
