Portsmouth DPW to Pick Up Hurricane Sandy Debris

Have a branch in your yard? The DPW can pick it up.

Portsmouth officials have announced that town workers will pick up storm debris from Hurricane Sandy. 

Residents are urged to place branches directly related to Hurricane Sandy (no larger than 8 inches in diameter) curbside for collection by Public Works.

Residents are also advised not to bundle or cut branches, unless necessary to put curbside. The deadline to have branches placed curbside will be Nov. 7. 

The transfer station will be open for residents that live on private or state roads, and have a valid sticker. Materials too large to fit in a 55-gallon container, must be cut to no more than three foot in length and bundled with twine for proper disposal.

If you have any questions, call Public Works at 683-0362.

This is the tree that fell down near my home taking out power to me and a dozen other houses in the neighborhood. Fortunately for the homeowner, their power wasn't affected. National Grid tells me "we're not a priority" and they have no idea when power will be restored. So thanks to the homeowner for failing to properly maintain the tree on their property and I'll be sure to make Nationsl Grid a priority when I'm writing out my checks next month!

This is great news. Is there a pick up schedule? Do the Santa run now and it would be a two for one.

I don't understand why Public Works won't pick up storm debris on state roads or private roads. I can ALMOST understand private roads, because you as a homeowner actually own the street, but state roads? So all those folks that pay property taxes that live on East and West Main Roads, Union St, part of Middle Rd, and many other streets are not deserving of help because, although they are voting citizens and taxpayers, they live on state roads and the state is not going out to pick up debris? Just seems wrong to me.
