WESTON, Conn. The state has begun collecting storm debris from Weston residents who live on state-maintained roads under its Debris Management Program .
The program is open to all Weston residents who live on Routes 57 and 53. It runs until Dec. 15.
Property owners can place their debris five feet from the edge of the pavement for pickup. The state is asking residents not to put debris near utility poles, wires, hydrants, mailboxes, sidewalks, signs or overhanging trees.
The Debris Management Program was developed to expedite storm cleanup. State crews will collect the debris by mid-December but have not yet set dates for specific municipalities. A schedule is expected soon.
For Weston residents who do not live on state-maintained roads, town officials are allowing debris drop-offs, free of charge, at the Transfer Station on weekdays until Friday, from 8 a.m. to 3:45 p.m.
Logs can be no larger than 10 inches in diameter. Smaller logs can be bundled and placed in the compactor, but they must be less than 3 feet in length.
Proof of Weston residency is required. Contractors must submit a signed letter stating the name, address and telephone number of client.
The Transfer Station is located at 237 Godfrey Road E .
