Due to the impact of the two major storms in early March, The Town of Bedford Department of Public Works (DPW) will pick up storm debris (logs and brush only, not bulk leaves) from residents. The Town of Bedford Beaver Dam Compost Facility is also open for residents in non-commercial vehicles to dispose of recyclable wood waste (logs and branches up to 6” diameter, brush, and leaves) Monday to Friday from 7:30 to 3:00, excluding town holidays. Please minimize the quantity you leave out for pick up since it may end up in place for an extended period.
All storm debris must be out at the edge of the property by March 19. Debris must be placed so that it does not interfere with traffic. The Town will only collect up to two cubic yards of material per household from the recent storm. Any material beyond two cubic yards will be left behind and must be removed by the property owner. Debris pickup will occur once per road. It will likely take at least three months to complete this task.
Once the DPW comes through each street, we will not come back for storm debris. Logs over 10” in diameter shall not be greater than 3’ in length.
The Town encourages all Bedford residents to consider managing their own organic waste on site. Composting and leaf mulching are relatively simple ways to cope with organic materials and there is the added advantage of saving the Town of Bedford significant funds if residents limit the amount of organic waste put out on the curb for our DPW to pick up.
Contact Bedford DPW at 666-7669 with any questions.
