Leaf & Brush Pickup November 2nd

LEAVES & BRUSH PICKUP November 2nd 

Residents are asked to have their leaves and brush curbside by Monday, November 1st. 

Materials placed curbside after this date may not be picked up. 

Please help make this process more efficient, Public Works may only have time to be in your neighborhood once. 

Bagged leaves should be placed curbside next to the brush and limbs. Piled limbs should be at most four feet in length (Please note this is the correct measurement. The Orono Observer's mention of 'at least four feet' is incorrect. 

Limbs must be less than six inches in diameter. Brush should be neatly piled at curbside and limbs should be stacked with broadest diameter ends facing the curb. Piles must be limited to one per parcel and not larger than 6 feet x12 feet. 

No chunks of firewood, blocks of wood or stumps will be picked up. 

Trash that is mixed with bagged leaves will not be picked up. 

Contact Orono Public Works at 207- 866-5062 with any questions.

Year round, the landfill accepts leaves, brush, grass clippings, and garden waste at the landfill at no additional charge for those with a window sticker (info on getting a window sticker here). The same is true for scrap metal, non-freon-containing white goods (ovens, microwaves), leaves and brush, clothing, towels, bedding, and footwear. There is a one ticket charge for anything that holds refrigerant, like a fridge, freezer, or AC unit.
