Curbside collection of the Town PAYT leaf bags will be held on Saturday, November 4th, Saturday November 18th, and Saturday, December 2nd. This schedule is subject to change due to weather. Residents who are putting leaf bags out for collection are advised to have them to the curb by 7:00 am on those Saturday mornings. These collections are weather dependent.
