One month after storm, Enfield holds clean-up

One month after storm, Enfield holds clean-up

The town of Enfield is using the sunshine and nice weather as an opportunity to clean up from last month’s flooding.

Town clean-up days are being held until 4 p.m. Friday, and are being held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday.

Residents can drop off scrap metal, appliances, wood and more at the town’s highway facility, but shouldn’t drop off household garbage.

Supervisor Ann Rider said everybody’s been pitching in over the past month.

“I stopped at a place to make sure they know about (the clean-up),” Rider said. “One of the neighbors had printed off the list from the website and given it to all the neighbors around.”

Rider said help has come from everywhere.

“The fire company’s pumped basements and helped community members with getting their lawns back to square one,” Rider said.

More information on the clean-up is on the town’s website.
