Yard waste drop-off Sundays


Residents cleaning leaves and brush off their property can now drop off their yard waste at a Department of Public Works-run site on Sundays. According to Victor Diniak, the department’s director, the town already held brush-pile collection on weekdays and from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays, but the extended Sunday hours resulted from a resident recommendation on the town’s new website. Public outreach has been a recent goal of the Board of Selectmen. The brush pile is chipped and then sent to wood-burning power plants, Diniak said in an e-mail, and the leaf pile is turned into compost and left out for interested residents. The collection site on Ames Way will be open from 8 a.m. to noon on Sundays until Nov. 17.
