NOTE: Please have brush out the Sunday night before the first Monday

Once we have picked up your street,
pick up will not be done again until the following month.
- Branches must be piled neatly at curb/roadside all in one direction parallel with the road, not in the street.
Leave branches as long as possible
Branch diameter limit is 6"
NOT ACCEPTABLE: Tree trunks, vines (they plug our chippers), lot clearings, or work done from a contractor.
ABSOLUTELY NO LAWN CLIPPINGS OR THORNY BRUSH
Please - No vines - No thorns - We recycle our wood chips to residents of Vestal, who often use them in play areas for children.
The Town of Vestal Highway Department mows 25ft from the center of road. We DO NOT go on private property!!
Our leaf pickup starts at the end of October and continues until all are picked up or there is too much snow to find them. Rake your leaves to the curb but not in the street/road and our crews will be around to pick them up as soon as possible.
If you can not wait for pick up, you may bring your leaves to 1801 Glenwood Road Highway Dept.M-F 7am to 3pm. Stop in the Main Office FIRST to check in.
If you have hired a CONTRACTOR the Contractor is to take the leaves away. Please, no sticks or any other foreign objects. It slows our process and can break down our machines.
