FRAMINGHAM, MA - A special curbside collection of yard waste will take place as a result of the October 29th snow storm. Brush, branches, and limbs must be neatly piled curbside by Monday, November 14th, 2011.
The Department of Public Works will make one pass through the Town picking up those materials and will not be able to return to a residence should items not be left out on time. For this one time collection only, it will not be necessary to tie the materials up. However, please keep the area free of vehicles between the hours of 7AM and 7PM so that DPW truck mounted equipment can pick it up.
This collection is for natural vegetation only. Food, trash, construction materials, etc., will not be collected. Bagged leaves will continue to be collected as scheduled throughout the month of November on your regular trash day. In addition, the normally scheduled curbside brush collection will occur on your regular trash day during the week of December 5th-9th. During this second collection brush will have to be prepared properly; bundled, tied, no greater than four feet in length and no greater the four inches in diameter.
Please be conscientious of the fact that this special curbside collection is being provided as a service for residents who experienced damage during the storm and should not be used for normal landscaping purposes. Also, if you have a large tree or a stump which requires attention, please contact a professional tree service company for removal and disposal services.
The Town of Framingham appreciates your patience as it will take some time to get to each home.
