The Town of Southold Highway Department Spring Cleanup will start on Monday, April 18, 2022 in Orient Point. Our Highway crews will remove only BRUSH and LEAVES and work in an Westerly direction until they reach Laurel. All Leaves Must Be In Biodegradable Paper Bags, NO EXCEPTIONS. We can only pass through an area once.
Residential brush free of charge for four weeks, at the Southold Town Compost Facility in Cutchogue (leaves are always accepted free). This four-week grace period is for those homeowners who wish to take their brush directly to the Town’s compost site themselves. The grace period will start Thursday, April 1, 2022, and end Friday, April 30, 2022.
Commercial landscaping and tree removal companies will no longer be permitted to deposit any loads of branches or yard debris for removal in the Town’s right-of-way. It will be the homeowner’s responsibility to make certain that their contractor(s) haul their yard debris to the Cutchogue Compost Facility as anyone observed dumping in the Town right-of-way will be fined for illegal dumping.
Fishers Island Spring Clean-Up will also commence on Monday, April 18, 2022.
The normal tip fees for brush disposal at the Cutchogue Compost Facility shall be waived for residential vehicles for the period April 1, 2022 through April 30, 2022; and that tip fees for brush shall be reduced for commercial vehicles to $30/ton for the period from April 1, 2022 through April 30, 2022.
Residential vehicles shall be defined as any vehicle with a resident disposal permit issued by the Town Clerk of the Town of Southold carrying less than one ton of debris (including trailers), or for vehicles without a permit, any vehicle with a less than one ton carrying capacity (including trailers); and that commercial vehicles shall be defined as any vehicle with a commercial disposal permit issued by the Town Clerk of the Town of Southold, or for vehicles without a permit, any vehicle with a carrying capacity of one ton or greater.
The tip fee waiver/reduction described herein shall not apply to stumps of any type; and that it applies to the charge for the weight of the debris ONLY, and not to single entry fees for vehicles without permits, which will still be charged as appropriate.
