Disposing of Yard and Clean Wood Waste

Details about the disposal of leaves, grass clippings, pine needles, garden waste, clean wood, and clean lumber.

Yard waste

Loads of leaves, grass clippings, pine needles, garden waste, small amounts of sod, and other non-woody yard and garden debris are accepted for a fee at the District Transfer Station.   Twigs in the yard waste should be no larger in diameter than a pencil.  Bags must be emptied of their contents.  Residents may check with their town clerk or the local fire warden for restrictions on open burning of yard waste.

Wood waste

Natural wood, including brush and tree limbs is accepted at the District Transfer Station.  Large branches or logs should be no more than 6″ in diameter.   Please keep log lengths to a manageable size.  Stumps are not accepted.   Check the current rate sheet for the cost of bringing wood to the transfer station.  Residents may check with their town clerk or the local fire warden for restrictions on open burning of wood waste.

Clean wood includes raw dimensional lumber that has never been painted, stained, treated, glued, or manufactured in any way.  As such, plywood, OSB, and particleboard are NOT considered clean wood.  It can consist of disassembled cable spools (metal removed) or pallets that have NO paint, plastic (including remnants of shrinkwrap), or particle board inserts.
