Public Works Director Stephen Edwards said in a news release that the Department of Public Works has started its cleanup from the storm, and will remove the storm damage that has fallen within the road right-of-way.
Trees and debris that have fallen on private property are the responsibility of the homeowner to clean up.
“Public Works will make a single pass through the town to pick up the storm debris which may take up to two weeks,” Edwards said. “Your patience during this trying time is appreciated.”
In response to the amount of tree damage that residents have incurred due to the recent storm, Edwards also said that the fee for residents to dispose of yard waste at the Bayberry Lane yard waste site will be waived through Saturday Nov. 17. The fee will not be waived for commercial haulers.
