No Debris Pick-Up in Avon After Hurricane Sandy

Power is almost completely restored in Avon.

The town of Avon will not be arranging for debris pickup like after the October snowstorm last year.

Town officials ask residents to remove all "storm debris" from public rights of way along the side of the road before the snow plowing season begins, according to a 9 a.m. message to the community posted on the town of Avon website Friday.

Residents can bring debris to the Avon Landfill on Huckleberry Hill Road at the cost of the normal fees to dispose of trash there. For more information, visit the town website or call Public Works at 860-673-6151 

Only 39 Avon Connecticut Light & Power customers were still without power as of about 3 p.m. Friday, according to the power company's outage map.

CL&P is working to restore electricity to those residents, the town's release stated. The town advises any remaining people without power to call 800-28602000 or 860-947-2000 if you have not already done so.

"There may be instances where CL&P believes an area to be energized, but may not be aware of individual service issues," the message stated. "Please report your outage, but be patient."

Avon businesses are open again if you need to recharge or get food. Healthtrax has made its showers available for anyone without power who needs it and you can also charge your electronics in the building on 100 Simsbury Rd, according to town officials. Bring any "towels, toiletries, and charging devices/accessories" needed, the message from the town stated. They are open from 5:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. on weekdays and 7 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday.

Do you have your power back? How did you fare during the storm?
