Given the severity of damage caused by the extreme weather event on Friday, the Town of Andover will provide several options to assist residents with discarding tree limbs and branches from their properties.
Beginning tomorrow, Tuesday, September 12, residents may drop off branches, limbs, and tree debris at the Bald Hill Compost Site, located at 288 High Plain Road, and the parking lot of Pomps Pond, located at 147 Abbot Street. Both drop-off sites will be open from 7:30 AM until 4:00 PM daily.
Additionally, Republic Services will be providing an additional truck to collect bundled branches and debris from the front of properties beginning on Wednesday, September 13. This additional curbside collection will not follow a normal route schedule. Residents should expect branches placed at their curb to be collected within one week.
Bundled branches for curbside pickup must be bound with tape or rope, and should be 50 pound or less. Branches may be up to 6 inches in diameter, and up to 4 feet in length. Bundles must not be bagged, and should not be placed on roadways or sidewalks while awaiting collection.
Use of these options should be limited to branches and tree debris, and should not be used for disposal of general yard waste not related to the storm.
