The separate collection of yard waste will start Wednesday in Amherst.
The yard waste must be placed near the curb on the normal trash collection day in open containers or paper bags.
Any brush or clippings should be cut to 4-foot lengths and either securely bundled or put into containers, said Leonard J. Fiegl, senior refuse
officer for the town.
If these rules are followed, the yard waste will be picked up in a timely manner, Fiegl said.
For more information, call the refuse office at 631-7119.
