Sanitation Collection Reminders

Sanitation Collection Reminders
During this crisis, the Town DPW strives to continue services to our residents. We offer the following reminders to help improve our sanitation collection services and clarify expectations of offered and available services.

BULK AND METAL COLLECTION DISCONTINUED
There is NO bulk garbage or metal pick up until further notice. Please do not leave uncollected material at the curb, as this is in violation of Town Code.
Residents following current “stay-at-home” directives and doing “spring-clean-up” should seek services of a private carting service or junk removal company to remove the excess bulk garbage. Many of these firms provide opportunities for re-use of your discarded household items.
ORGANIC YARD WASTE
Organic waste pickup (i.e. leaves, cut up and tied branches, as per the Town Code) continues weekly – no appointment or call necessary. Just place your organic yard waste at the curb in open containers, or bundled and tied – no plastic! Please note:
Leaves and grass clippings must be in paper yard waste bags or open, reusable containers. Consider mulching for improved yard care.
Branches and twigs must be tied and bundled in small bundles – less than 4 feet long and bundle size total less than 2 feet across. No logs or stumps.
The Town does NOT pick up material from private contractors. For example, if you hire a contractor to remove a tree, they are responsible for hauling away the debris.
The Town does NOT collect debris from tree removals, or gardeners renovating a property.
AUTOMATED SIDE-ARM SERVICE REMINDERS:
Only material in the Town Issued cart is collected.
Do NOT pile garbage on top of the container. It will not be collected.
Do not place loose trash in the cart. Bag all debris.
Practice social distancing with your cart – keep them 3- feet apart/away from other objects.
RECYCLING REMINDERS:
NO PLASTIC BAGS! Place recyclables loosely in the Town issued recycling cart.
ONLY use the Town Issued cart or Bin
Need a larger recycling cart? Call us – we deliver! (914)-989-1580.
Cardboard Boxes must be ripped into flat pieces.
Cardboard should be tied into bundles or placed in an open, reusable container. Keep the weight under 50-pounds. Paper is still collected manually by our Sanitation Workers. Keep it from blowing on windy days and help us by being aware.
ALL MATERIAL MUST BE AT THE STREET EDGE BY 7:00 am.

The Town DPW office is available to you at (914)989-1581 or (914) 989-1580, or by email at dpw@greenburghny.com

As always, we are at your service. Thank you and be safe!!
