Residents are asked to place storm debris to the curb on their regular refuse collection day (in accordance with the new refuse collection program that goes into effect on Monday, July 2) to be collected by Town crews.  Residents do not need to call the Department of Public Works to request a collection; simply place tree limbs and other storm generated debris to the curb for collection alongside your regular household trash and recycling materials.  Trees and limbs should be less than six inches in diameter and less than eight feet in length.  Do not clear brush near downed power lines as the brush may be energized.  For more information, call the Department of Public Works at (703) 255-6380.
