You Asked ... Patch Answers: When Will Leaf Bags Be Picked Up?
The short answer? They won't.
This was the question, from "Angel":
"SO ... now that Christmas is over, maybe the town can finish picking up all the leaf bags from the leftover curbs around town, that have been sitting on the streets for WEEKS?"
I put a call into Audrey at Public Works and she told me leaf pick up is over for this year – that the Town completed its leaf bag pickups the first week of December.
That's bad news for those who've left their bags out on the curb waiting for the leaf truck that will never come (at least not until spring). But all is not lost.
Audrey said the Transfer Station accepts yard waste all year round. It is open on Saturdays between 8 a.m. and 4 p.m. All East Greenwich residents can use the Transfer Station for residential debris but you do need a sticker that signifies you as legit EG. You get the sticker from the Public Works Department (111 Peirce Street, across from Swift Community Center). Bring the registration for the vehicle you intend to use.
