The Town of Windham has announced its 2012 leaf-collection schedule, and notes that changes in the weather (i.e. a downpour or snowstorm) can cause changes in this schedule.
Collection is divided into three “areas” (formerly “districts”).
- Area 1 (formerly called districts 1 and 2) includes all residents on the Main Street side of the Willimantic River.
- Area 2 (formerly called district 3) includes all residents of Willimantic on the Pleasant Street side of the Willimantic River, including residents on Pemberton Road and Antrim Road.
- And Area 3 (formerly districts 4 and 5) includes all residents living in South Windham, Windham Center and North Windham.
Collection will begin with Area 3 during the week beginning Nov. 5.
Next, collection for Area 2 begins the week of Nov. 12.
And collection for Area 1 will be conducted the week beginning Nov. 19.
Please note that trucks will pass each area only once.
Residents must rake their leaves to the gutters BEFORE the first day of leaf collection in their area. Please do not mix in branches or rubbish – or the leaves will not be collected.
Please also make sure other objects are not mixed in with the leaves to prevent damage to collection equipment and/or personnel.
You may also collect your leaves in biodegradable bags and call the Windham Public Works office during office hours to schedule a pick-up (860-465-3090).
Depending on weather conditions, the town may schedule a second leaf collection cycle.
Questions? Please call Public Works Monday through Friday from 7 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at 860-465-3090 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
