New Trash Collection Contractor On The Job
Beginning June 1st, Modern Disposal, a new contractor, began collecting garbage and recycling in the Village. This change should be seamless to residents, with the same pickup schedule and maximum quantities allowed for collection. See the detailed brochure for more information.
A new option is that residents may purchase totes from the Modern company. Trash left for collection in non-tote containers (i.e., a 32-gallon trash can) will continue to be collected, following the standard limits.
The Village will continue to sell tags for added bags of trash over the limit, available at the Village Hall for $5 each.
See an informative article from the New York State Conference Of Mayors (NYCOM) on changes in the recycling market, with insights on why fewer kinds of recyclables are accepted than in past years.
Online Bill Payment System
The Village has a new online bill payment system. Prior to making a first payment online in the new system, all customers will need to register.
