City of Bridgeportís Pick-Up of
Leaves, Brush, Branches & Grass Clippings
The City of
Bridgeportís Roadway Division picks up leaves,
brush, branches and grass clippings
from residentís curb-side on your streetís
designated recycling day. The pick-up schedule
is weather permitting. Occasionally crews can
fall behind schedule because of weather or
personnel constraints, and residentís patience
is urged. Leaves, brush
and grass-clippings are to be placed in brown
paper recyclable bags. No plastic bags. Branches
should be no more than 4 feet in length and tied
fall season only, residents can also rake
leaves onto the grassy area between sidewalk
& curb for
bulk loose leaf pick-up.
usually goes from mid-November until mid-December, weather
permitting. The city has
3 crews who do this. One works the Black
Rock area starting from the town line
working eastward to west end and south end
neighborhoods. Two crews are deployed to the
North End town line between Park &
Main to start. One crew works east and
another crew goes south. The crews are
strategically deployed to first service the
heavier leafed neighborhoods (upper North
End, Lake Forest, Treeland, Beardsley Park,
Brooklawn & Black Rock). Once those
sections are completed, the crews target the
east side/east end, lower north end, west
end/south end, and finally down town.
can also bring these materials to the City of
Bridgeportís Transfer Station located at 475
Asylum Street, Monday-Friday 7 am - 3:30 pm and
Saturday 7 am -12 pm. Any large amounts of brush
should be brought to the transfer-station.
