There are not too many silver linings to Hurricane Sandy. But one of them might be free firewood for Morristown residents.

Details about that–and about curbside pickup of storm debris–are below, from town public works Director Jeff Hartke:

Residents may place tree parts, brush and leaves at the curb at anytime.
Brush and tree parts must be separated from leaves.

Brush and tree parts can also be dropped off at the Lake Road Recycling Center.
Tue thru Friday 7am to 3:30pm and Sat 8am to 2pm

We are asking that people be patient.
DPW is working overtime to collect all tree parts, brush and leaves as quickly as possible.
Work will continue until the Town is clear. No one will “miss” a pickup.

Residents may pick up firewood at the Lake Road Recycling Center. No charge, first come first served. Hand loading only. No chainsaws.
