Stamford leaf collection leaves trail of debris

December 7, 2018

STAMFORD — About 60 percent of the city’s leaves have been picked up with the collection process expected to be completed by the end of next week.

But the process occasionally leaves behind a messy trail of debris.

Some have raised concerns it could cause a hazard when the debris mixes with snow and ice on the roads.

Taylor Gray, a spokesman for Mayor David Martin, said the city will send out street sweepers to clean up the debris once the leaf collection is complete.

If there is still a problem, Gray advises citizens to use the new FixIt Stamford link on the city’s website, www.stamfordct.gov to report the issue.

On FixIt, residents can report a “mixed leaf pick up” — use those exact words in the search bar to pull up the right screen — and enter an email address and the street address of the problem.

You can also describe the situation in a text box and attach files or photos. On the site, residents can track whether the city has received their message and what it has done about it.

Residents can also report a problem to the Citizens Services phone line at 203-977-4140.
