STAMFORD, Conn. — The city of Stamford has announced it will begin leaf pickup Nov. 13, a news release on the city’s website said.
Crews will start at the New York state border and work south toward the Merritt Parkway. The leaves in the area between the parkway and Interstate 95 are scheduled to be collected from Nov. 16 through Dec. 3, and the area south of the highway should see crews starting Dec. 3, the release said.
The city asks residents to not put leaves out until the start date in their area. Once crews have passed your street, they will not return, the release said. Leaves must be taken to the curb and be loose or in paper leaf bags, the release said.
No brush, grass clippings or other waste will be collected.
Residents can also take leaves to the Katrina Mygatt Recycling Center on Magee Avenue and the Scofieldtown Recycling Center, the release said. Scofieldtown will be open only for leaf collection and disposal but closed to all other services until Dec. 3.
Dates for leaf clearing may get pushed back depending on the weather.
