Separate Leaves From Storm Debris in New Rochelle

Mixing up the leaves with branches and other storm-related debris will impede the cleanup.

Public Works Commissioner Alexander Tergis said New Rochelle residents should separate the storm debris from the fallen leaves at curbside.

Now that New Rochelle is somewhat back to normal crews will restart the leaf collection process, but Tergis said putting storm debris on top of the leaf piles will prevent the leaves from being picked up.

Two different crews—one made up of city works and the other, contractors—will be tackling the cleanup.

Tergis said if the leaf-collection contractors come across a pile that is topped with storm debris they will move on, not touching it.

He also said the collection process will be seriously slowed if the debris is mixed in with the leaves. The contractors are not equipped to handle the removal of storm debris.
