Town Highway Superintendent Alex Gregor said that the town will be picking up debris from residents’ homes for free if it is piled on roadsides, similar to the way leaves have traditionally been picked up in the fall. Residents should separate their debris into two piles—one with branches no more than 3 inches in diameter, and one with large branches—to ease the collection work for town crews.

Ms. Throne-Holst said the Highway Department will be helping elderly and infirm residents with the cleanups of their own yards next week also.

Mr. Gregor said that even after a relatively minor storm event, compared to hurricanes past, there is an enormous amount of debris left strewn around the town.

“It’s frustrating,” he said. “It’s how it used to be in the old days. Mother Nature wins. We just tend to pick up the pieces. It’s nice to know in this technological age, Mother Nature still calls the shots.”

Various staff members contributed reporting to this story.
