Amherst’s annual spring pickup of large unmanageable piles of logs, brush and tree stumps will begin the week of May 21.
Residents are asked by the town Highway Department to have the brush at streetside on their regular refuse pickup day, although it may not be picked up that day depending on the volume.
"We can reassure you that it will get picked up," the department said in a news release. "It may take approximately two to three weeks for us to complete the whole Town."
No mixed piles containing lumber, concrete, railroad ties or non-organic materials will be collected. No brush over 8 feet long will be picked up. Leaves, small trimmings and other yard waste should be placed in containers, paper yard waste bags or bundled for collection by Modern Corp. on a weekly basis.
