Leaf Pick Up Guidelines
The Village of Central Square DPW picks up leaves and brush twice a year for Village residents. Notices are posted in the paper, on our new digital sign and here.
Leaves should be raked and placed as close to the edge of the street as possible. Do not bag the leaves. Do not place leaves on sidewalks or in ditches. No other material should be placed in the leaf pile including grass, branches, landscape waste etc., Brush and sticks can also be placed loosely along the street without obstructing drainage and should not be bound in anyway. Logs, stumps, large amounts of sticks and limbs from clearing, grass clippings, flowers, weeds, plants and lumber should not be placed along the road side for pick up.
Please follow the same guidelines as listed for spring pick up. Leaf disposal alternative: Instead of having leaves hauled away, they can also be used for mulch. Chop them with a lawn mower, string trimmer or shredder before mulching to help them stay put under trees, shrubs etc.
The Village of Central Square would like to remind everyone that once the snow comes, please help to keep the water hydrants and sidewalks clear near your home. A cleared hydrant can help save precious time in case of a fire. Also remember when clearing snow from driveways, do not shovel, blow or plow into the streets. This can create a hazardous condition for drivers and pedestrians. Thank you for your help!
Hours: 7:00am - 3:30pm Monday through Friday
