Norwich Public Works to do special brush collection
Norwich — The Public Works Department will run an emergency brush pickup starting Monday to collect debris from Tropical Storm Isaias.
Public Works crews will collect a “reasonable amount” of branches that will be chipped at curbside and hauled away. Branch cuttings may be no larger than 4 inches in diameter to be fed into the chipper. Public Works will not be picking up small twigs or material in containers or bags. There will be no return trips, so branches should be piled at curbside prior to the start date.
Norwich residents can bring branch cuttings smaller than 4 inches in diameter, lawn debris, leaves, twigs and scrap metal from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday, and 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Saturday to the transfer station at 73 Rogers Road at no charge.
