DENNIS, Mass. (WBZ NewsRadio) — It’s the calm after the storm. The lights are back on across Cape Cod and residents across the Cape’s 15 towns are now clearing away storm debris from their yards and property.

"It was a lot of devastation," said Kevin Robichard, the Acting Crew Leader at the Dennis Transfer Station. He said the area set aside for brush was completely empty on Thursday morning, and it now stands taller than a bulldozer and measures about 100 feet long.

Heavy Equipment Operator Jason Coleman said town residents have been waiting in line since the storm ended on Thursday to drop off everything from downed trees and tree limbs to ripped up bushes and leaves.

He said the station has already filled up ten 40-yard containers and shipped them off.

Robichaud said residents can drop off their brush free of charge until November 7, which is the same deal as a number of transfer stations in towns across the Cape.

The Cape was rattled by high winds during Wednesday's storm, with Edgartown on Martha's Vineyard receiving the highest wind gust speed anywhere in the state at a reported 94 mph.
