Borough to collect leaves


NAUGATUCK — The Public Works Department will be collecting leaves next week.

Leaves will be collected on residents’ regular trash day in 30-gallon paper bags. Leaves and pine needles and other soft yard waste material are also accepted year round at the Recycling Center in 30-gallon paper bags only.

Leaves, and grass clippings cannot be placed in the new automated carts, they cannot be mixed with the cans and bottles for recycling and cannot be placed in the trash. Home compost bins are also sold to Naugatuck residents who wish to start a backyard compost bin.
