Please remember to refer to your Stratford town calendar for the trash and recycling collection during the holiday periods. The calendar is loaded with helpful information!
Please note the branch chipper will make its last trip for 2013 the last week of October. Have your branches and limbs out at the curb by Tuesday, October 29. Due to the leaf collection which begins in November, the chipper will not be out in November and December. The chipper resumes after the holidays to chip Christmas trees
The DPW will begin collecting leaves the first week of November. There are two machines working together on the same street/area. Do not place other objects into the leaf piles such as branches/plants/concrete/debris. This will cause serious damage to the equipment and will only slow the process if the machine needs to be repaired.
There is no collection during any rain. The truck and machine need clear access to the leaf pile so do not park your vehicle near the pile. There are no workers raking the piles into the street, so if the pile is not accessible the machine will continue to move onward and pass your pile.
You may call borough hall to inquire to the location of the machines. They begin in the area behind Aldi’s Food Store and move across one side of town, and then they will cross the RR tracks to the other side of town. Once they pass they will not return until the whole town is completed.
