Spring Cleanup will start Monday, April 6 with greatly Reduced Staffing due to CDC and NYS guidelines for the Covid-19 pandemic.
NO Loose Leaf Collection this year. Place leaves in biodegradable paper bags/reusable barrels up to 32 gallons/50 pounds maximum. Leaf vacuuming is extremely dusty, so our crews must wear safety masks. We are prioritizing masks for our police and emergency responders, not leaf vacuuming.
We are still collecting stacked brush (cut to 4 ft. lengths maximum, stacked neatly, no more than 3 ft. tall) and waste lumber/wood items (approx. 300 lbs/week max.).
However, with minimal staffing this will be a much slower process, and we will not be adhering to a normal weekly brush pickup schedule.
NOTE: The Compost Facility IS NOW OPEN Tues. – Sat. 8 AM – 4 PM for residents and Town businesses to drop off yard waste/bagged or loose leaves, and for residents to shovel compost. However, we have minimal staffing currently. Please be patient, and practice safe social distancing while there.
NOTE 2: There is currently a BURNING BAN which prohibits outdoor burning. Burning of leaves, garbage, treated lumber and certain other materials is always prohibited by NYS law: https://www.dec.ny.gov/chemical/58519.html
