  Amherst’s annual spring brush pickup will begin on May 23rd. Pickup will follow the same weekly schedule as residents’ refuse pickup regarding the day of the week. However it may take approximately two to three weeks for us to complete the whole Town. Please have brush, logs and stumps out for pickup by this date. The Town will collect large unmanageable piles of logs, brush, and tree stumps only. All material must be placed out the start of that week. We are going thru all areas of the Town one time only. No mixed piles containing lumber, concrete, railroad ties or non-organic materials will be collected. Leaves, small trimmings and other yard waste should be put in containers, paper yard waste bags or bundled for collection by Modern Corporation on a weekly basis. The Highway Department will not pick up these materials during this spring brush pickup.
