Danbury's free Fall Leaf Pick-up Program started this week. The leaf collection program will run for six weeks, through December 2nd. Only leaves bagged in paper leaf bags with no tape should be left at curbside for the city’s Highway Department to pick-up. No plastic bags, large debris like tree stumps or grass clippings will be collected.
Branches will be picked up separately. Limbs must be cut into lengths no longer than 4 feet, no limb may be larger than 4 inches in diameter. Branches must be bundled with twine in bundles no heavier than 35 pounds.
The Leaf Pickup Program is divided by I-84; Section A is to the south with zip code 06810 and Section B is to the north with zip code 06811. Section A pick up continues tomorrow before switching to Section B. This cycle will be repeated through December 2nd.
Pick-up dates are subject to change throughout the program depending on weather and the Highway Department’s work schedule.
Ferris Mulch Products at 6 Plumtrees Road is open for Danbury residents who wish to drop off their own bags or tree and yard debris throughout the year for free. The hours are Monday through Friday 7:00 am through 3:30 pm. Saturday from 7:30 am to 12noon. Closed on Sundays.
