[ARCHIVED] New Monthly Pick-Ups for Bagged Yard Waste

As a service to residents, beginning in 2015 there will be an additional monthly pick-up of certain bagged yard waste during the spring through early fall. The schedule for 2015 is as follows:

  • Saturday, May 23
  • Saturday, June 27
  • Saturday, July 25
  • Saturday, August 29
  • Saturday, September 26
  • Saturday, October 31

For 2016 and forward, the pick-ups are anticipated to run from April to September—a total of 6 new pick-ups per year.

What will be collected? “Yard Waste” is restricted to biodegradable material such as leaves, grass and small branches or twigs (no more than ½ inch in diameter) from general yard and garden maintenance. Yard Waste does not include large branches or tree limbs over ½ inch in diameter.

How will it be collected? Yard Waste must be contained in biodegradable bags available at area hardware stores (such as Village Hardware on Route 322). Residents may also place Yard Waste in clean trash cans (they must be completely clean of any household refuse as all Yard Waste is taken to a composting facility which cannot allow contamination of their compost grounds). Allowed trash cans are a maximum size of 95 gallons. Small branches or twigs must not be bundled with string (again, an issue for the composting facility), but must be placed in the bags or cans. All Yard Waste should be put in appropriate containers, and left at curbside on the last Friday night of the month or very early on the last Saturday morning of the month (pick-up can start as early as 5:30am).
