On October 29, 2011 most of the state was blanketed by as much as 27 inches of wet snow from the Massachusetts Severe Storm and Snowstorm. This event generated massive amounts of hurricane like vegetative debris. AshBritt received separate task orders from the State for emergency road clearance operations in 32 municipalities. Additionally, the state offered the contract to all municipalities and public agencies for large volume debris removal, management and disposal operations. Twenty separate municipalities as well as the City of Springfield’s Parks Department and publicly owned Springfield College chose to utilize this contract.
