Brush and Branch Pickup Information for Bristol, Plainville and Plymouth

November 9, 2011

The Bristol Transfer Station will stay open until 5:00 pm through November 13. 

On Saturday, Nov. 12 and Sunday, Nov. 13, the hours will be 7:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

The City is asking residents placing brush/branches at the curb for collection to be mindful of sight lines and other safety issues.

Please ensure that brush/branches are not on the sidewalk or in the road, and that intersections and traffic signs are kept clear. Brush/branches can be kept just behind the sidewalk in neighborhoods that have sidewalks.

Crews will arrive as soon as they can to collect storm debris.

The Public Works Department will be picking up branches that have fallen as a result of the storm.  Residents must bring the branches to the curb and it will then be picked up by the Town.  It is anticipated that the debris removal may take up to two months to finish. 

Unfortunately, this coincides with leaf pick up. The decision has been made to pick up the brush curbside and to cancel the leaf collection program for this year.

However, the Town is opening up the Transfer Station located on Granger Lane seven days a week beginning immediately.  Residents can bring leaves and brush to the Transfer Station on Granger Lane Monday thru Sunday with no charge.

If you bag your leaves and bring them to the Transfer Station, you MUST dump the leaves out of the bags
