RYE BROOK, N.Y. – Rye Brook has put the following procedures into effect for residents to assist in cleanup efforts following Hurricane Sandy:

•No tree permits or replanting is required for tree removals due to storm.

• Only hire licensed contractors to remove trees and clean up properties.

• Downed trees and stumps must be completely removed from the property by the homeowner or the homeowner’s contractor. Cut-up trees and stumps cannot be left at the curb.

• Branches and limbs of a manageable size (i.e. handled by hand by one person) can be neatly placed at the curb.   Branches and limbs should be no greater than 4-5 feet in length in piles with a maximum height of 4 feet.

• Brush must be bundled and tied for efficient pickup.

• Do not stack any storm debris (branches, limbs, sticks, etc.) on top of leaf piles.  They cannot be mixed together for pickup.

• Do not place any storm debris in the roadway.
