3/12/18. City-Wide Storm Debris Pick Up to Now Start March 19th STAMFORD, CT –
Mayor David Martin and Director of Operations Ernie Orgera today [yesterday] announced an updated start date for the city-wide storm debris pickup. Due to another nor’easter last week and expected snow tomorrow, the pickup will now begin on Monday, March 19th with a crew starting in North Stamford working south, and a second crew starting in the southern part of the city, working north.
“Two Nor’easters have hit Stamford hard, toppling many trees and leaving large branches strewn in yards and streets throughout the City,” said Mayor Martin. “The amount of debris from these storms is more than we have seen in Stamford in years, which is why we will be offering residents a cleanup starting next week. Crews will work their way through every street and neighborhood, collecting branches and other storm-related debris.”
Residents should put storm-related debris curbside and not in the road, and if possible, parallel to the road for easier pickup. Crews will not be picking up debris from private property and will not pick up other debris. Equipment used by Operations crews can handle tree debris up to 6 feet in length and there is no limit on circumference. There will only be one sweep for storm-related debris and it is weather-permitting.
Due to tomorrow’s expected snow, and a possible storm mid-week next week, it is possible that the date may change one more time. A final decision will be made later this week so residents have ample time to get debris to the curb.
