RECYCLING RULES & REGULATIONS
BAGGED LEAVES & GRASS CLIPPINGS: Bagged leaves at curbside are picked up from April 1st to November 1st, on your Recycle Wednesday. You must use brown paper bags only: no cardboard boxes, plastic bags, etc. From November 1st to January 1st, your bagged leaves will be picked up during the Village’s bulk leaf pick-up program, (not on your recycle Wednesday). From January 1st to February 1st, bags will be picked up only on your Recycle Wednesday. No bags will be picked up from February 1st to April 1st.
BULK LEAVES: Bulk leaf pick up at the curbside starts about October 15th and ends on January 1st : this is seasonal based on the leaf drop. Bulk leaves (including bagged leaves), must be placed within the Village’s Right Of Way (usually the first 10 feet from the road edge): not in the road.
We cover the Village in a series of several laps, each taking between two to three weeks to complete. We do not respond to scheduling requests: and continue pick up until complete. Do not mix sticks or brush with leaves. Once the final lap is complete, bulk leaf pick up kicks into the schedule for bagged leaves, above . You can also drop off leaves at DPW or provide a note for your landscaper to drop them off on your behalf.
BRUSH: Branches must be less than 6” in diameter and cut to 5’ or less in length and TIED in manageable bundles. Small loose brush must be placed in paper bags for curbside pick up on Recycle Wednesday. Brush pick-up will be suspended annually from November 1st to January 1st. Brush will be
picked up with Christmas trees in January and suspended from February 1st, until April 1st.
LOGS: Logs and brush in excess of 6” diameter and longer than 5’ will not be picked up. You will have to make other arrangements for disposal.
CHRISTMAS TREES: Christmas trees are picked up from January 1st to February 1st at the curbside on your Recycle Wednesday.
NOTE: All organic waste material meeting the above criteria can be dropped off by you or your landscaper (with a note from you) at the DPW yard at 10 Buckhout Road, all year, Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Residents and landscapers must sign in at the DPW office.
