Loose leaf collection of leaves in Hillsborough will end Tuesday, Jan. 31.
Beginning Feb. 1, residents should place leaves in biodegradable bags for collection at the curb. A maximum of 10 bags per property will be removed each collection day.
Also beginning the first week in February, brush will be collected once every two weeks until the loose leaf collection season starts again in November.
Small amounts of brush must be placed in biodegradable paper bags or tied into bundles using jute, sisal or hay baling twine if the amount is less than 30 pounds. No plastic or cotton twine may be used. Residents with a few sticks should allow a bagful or several armfuls to accumulate before placing brush at the curb.
Residents may receive a free sample of twine to be used for bundling small amounts of brush. Stop by Town Hall at 101 E. Orange St. or at Town Hall Annex at 137 N. Churton St.
A brochure on residential curbside collections—including a calendar for 2012—was mailed to all residents in the fall. The information also is available on the home page and Public Works Department page of the town’s website.
