WESTPORT, Conn. Crews from Westport's Public Works Department are setting out to clean up fallen tree limbs and other debris that have fallen onto town property following the historic Oct. 29 nor'easter, Public Works Director Stephen Edwards announced Wednesday.
"Public Works crews will make a single pass through the town to pick up the storm debris, which may take up to two weeks," Edwards said in a statement. "Residents' patience during this trying time is appreciated."
Trees and other storm debris that have fallen onto private property, Edwards said, is the responsibility of homeowners to clean up. But because of the amount of tree damage, the disposal fee at the Bayberry Lane dump will be waived for residents through Nov. 12, he said.
Commercial haulers will still have to pay the free. The yard waste site, located at 180 Bayberry Lane , will be open until 3 p.m. Monday through Saturday through Dec. 3.
