Leaf pickup pushes ahead into holiday season (SLIDESHOW)

The town’s annual leaf pickup program began two weeks ago, and will continue through Thanksgiving into December.

Residents may request bagged leaf pickup at any time throughout the program by calling 203-452-5070 or 203-452-5071. All leaves must be in paper bags. Plastic bags will not be picked up.

Putting leaves on the pavement is subject to a $90 fine and creates dangerous conditions for vehicles and pedestrians.

“Do not deposit your leaves on someone else’s property or vacant lot — unless you have the owner’s permission,” the release said.

In the event of an early snowfall, if crews are not able to complete leaf collection, leaves in the gutter may be plowed back partially onto your lawn and may remain snow covered.
