SPRING CLEAN UP: White/Brown Goods collection takes place one day a year and materials are picked up curbside. Acceptable items may vary year to year but usually include large and small appliances, furniture, mattresses and box springs, rimless tires, and some scrap metal. A notice from the Town Office is sent to residents each year describing procedures and items acceptable for collection.
