The City of Derby provides sanitation services including weekly curbside refuse and recycling pickups, residential brush pickups, residential leaf pickup (must be placed in biodegradable bags) and Christmas Tree pickups. The city does bulk pickup from May until the end of October by appointment only on Tuesday's. The residents must call the City Garage at 203-736-1468 to make an appointment. "Only scheduled appointments will be picked up" so residents must call. If not, they will be cited for illegal dumping.
Brush and leaves: residents must call the Public Works Garage to have their brush and bags of leaves (in bio degradable bags) picked up in front of their houses. Derby Public Works will collect leaves in recycling bags only. Bags with ANYTHING other than leaves will not be taken. Brush should be cut into 4 to 5 foot lengths, and tied together (if possible) and left neatly by the curb. Brush and leaves cannot be brought to the Public Works Complex. We are not permitted to accept them there. They must be picked up in front of their houses. Please call the Public Works Complex before placing items at the curb, to schedule an appointment and receive procedure requirements. Procedure Violators may be subject to fines and fees.
