RYE BROOK, N.Y. – Rye Brook residents with additional storm debris from Hurricane Sandy must place all branches, limbs and small logs at curbside by Monday, the village announced.
As public works crews balance leaf collection with continued storm debris clean up, there will be just one additional pass through the village beginning next week. After this collection, all green waste will be collected by the village’s contractor for normal green waste pickup and procedures.
Residents are asked to be patient with the collection of leaves and branches and to please follow the following procedures, which will make the program proceed more efficiently:
• Do not place branches or limbs in the leaf piles. They are collected by different equipment and will significantly slow down operations and could break leaf vacuum equipment.
• Do not place any branches or limbs in the street. They must be placed on the lawns. Branches in the street can block storm drains, and may affect leaf collection or snow plowing operations.
• The highway department will assist with picking up limbs, branches, and small logs of a manageable size (i.e. handled by hand by one person) that cannot reasonably be tied up or placed in a container. These items must be placed by the curb (not in the street) before Monday. After that, normal green waste collection procedures apply.
• Entire trees removed from properties should not be placed at the curb and should be removed off site by the property owner or tree service that removed the tree.
• Please make every effort to tie up any smaller loose branches or limbs and place them in an open container for collection by the village’s contractor for normal Wednesday green waste collection pickup.
Any questions about collection procedures should be directed to (914) 939-0753.
