Officials have decided to add an extra week of brush pick up to the town’s public works schedule for the fall.
The week before Thanksgiving, residents throughout town will be able to have their brush picked up. Brush should be placed near the curb in the street by 7 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 16.
“We’re always looking to improve or schedule. We’ve hear the cry of residents,” Princeton Director of Infrastructure and Operations Bob Hough said. “We know there was concern about going from October to January of 2016 without any brush collection.”
The town is also revising its leaf and brush pick up schedule for 2016 and adding additional pick ups in the summer and fall.
Many former Princeton Borough residents have complained that their brush and leaf services were cut back after consolidation. Many residents in the downtown area have smaller yards and do not have the space to compost or store all their leaves and brush.
