Storm Information

This is an important message from the Town of Longmeadow Emergency Management Director Fire Chief John Dearborn.

A debris disposal site has been established in the parking lot of Wolf Swamp Fields where residents can bring debris from the storm.  The Town will also be developing a curbside collection schedule in your area for brush that is placed at the street edge or on the tree-belt.

The Department of Public Works or its contractor will remove fallen trees that are in the public way.  Any trees on private property will need to be brought forward for collection by the homeowner. 

If there is debris that is causing a public safety hazard, please contact the Longmeadow Police Department at (413) 567-3311.  For information about debris collection, please contact the Department of Public Works at (413) 567-3400 beginning tomorrow morning after 7AM.
