Most towns are responsible for collection of brush and leaves. Please contact your town to see what their collection procedures and schedules are. If your town does not collect brush, please contact our office as we may be able to make special arrangements. Boon & Sons is not responsible for leaf collection. We will only collect bagged leafs in towns that do not provide leaf collection service, but volume / quantity must remain within normal weekly collection limits.
A reasonable amount (1-2 cubic yards or six 30 gallon bags) of bulk items will be collected on a weekly basis provided that it is in containers, bundled or neatly arranged so as to facilitate easy collection.
