Grass clippings, leaves and branches.

According to the town, that’s all that should be going on the new brush pile that was recently developed on the industrial hill, not far from the Legion baseball field.

Joe Fischer, the town’s administrator, said construction materials, lumber, tree stumps, trash, appliances and other household items have been dumped in recent weeks at the brush pile.

“The town considers the leaf, grass and brush pit a valuable resource for the town’s residents and would like to continue offering this service,” he said. “We ask that users help us by self-monitoring the site to prevent misuse that may result in closure.”
