Leaf pickup in Fairfield starts next week on November 9th! The Town of Fairfield will be providing residents with 4 weeks of leaf collection this fall.
Since there is no specific pickup day for a particular street or neighborhood, bags must be curbside by 6am Monday to assure pickup during that week.
The collection weeks are:
- Week 1 – November 9th
- Week 2 – November 16th
- **(Thanksgiving Week – NO pickup!)
- Week 3 – November 30th
- Week 4 – December 7th
The Town of Fairfield provides four weeks of leaf collection for all neighborhoods outside of Greenfield Hill*. There is no pickup during Thanksgiving week to allow residents extra time to finish their raking. The weeks are determined based on weather conditions and leaf fall.
Bags placed outside of the Town right-of-way (for example: along driveways, inside stone walls or fences) will NOT be picked up.
*Greenfield Hill – Greenfield Hill residents may enter a service request (select “Leaf Collection Request (Greenfield Hill)”) or call the Town Garage at 203-256-3177 to request leaf collection during weeks 1, 2 and 4. The Greenfield Hill Leaf Collection Area is defined as the area north of Hulls Farm Road and west of Burr Street and the area east of Burr Street and north of Congress Street. See the Leaf Collection Area Map for details.
Leaves must be in biodegradable paper bags. Do NOT seal the paper bags. The following will NOT be picked up:
- plastic bags
- loose leaves
In order to avoid blocking catch basins / street drains, residents are reminded to not rake leaves into the gutter or the street. Residents are also asked to make an effort to keep the catch basin grates in the vicinity of their home clear of leaves and debris to prevent local flooding.
Leaf Drop Off
The We Care Denali facility at the Public Works Yard is available for leaf and yard waste drop off. The facility is open with extended hours beginning November 1 thru December 15.
