Just in time for spring clean up, the Village of Greenport has scheduled leaf and brush pickup dates for 2014. 

Pickups will be every other Tuesday beginning April 15 and again on April 29; May 13, 27; June 10, 24; July 8, 22; August 5, 19; September 2, 16, 30; October 14, 28; November 11, 25. The final pickup date in 2014 is Dec. 9.

Village crews will only collect branches, leaves and grass clippings, according to the village website. Additionally, residents can only dispose of debris in paper bags (not plastic).

Bags should be placed curbside the Saturday prior to a scheduled pickup day. Leaving materials at the curb prior  to the suggested date results in overloading village storm drains and hinders street sweeping, the village warns. Violators may be ticketed.
