• The Southold Town Highway Department has announced they will be picking up bagged leaves only — no brush or branches — from residences throughout the town beginning Dec. 1. Residents are asked to have their bagged leaves curbside before Dec. 1, since the Highway Department will only be coming through once. And if you can’t fit all your leaves in bags, consider leaving some on your garden beds to build up organic matter and provide habitat for beneficial creatures through the winter. You’ll notice the difference next year.
