Waste Pickup

WASTE PICK UP 2016

1. WEEKLY WASTE AND RECYCLEABLES:

Syracuse Haulers handles all weekly trash & recyclable pick-up and removal for all residential and commercial properties within the Village.  Any concerns relating to trash pick-up/removal should be made directly to Syracuse Haulers by calling 426-6771 or by visiting their website at SyracuseHaulers.com

Trash will be one day late the week of Memorial Day (May 30th), Independence Day (July 4th), and Labor Day (September 5th) this year.

Note:  paint cans will dry quicker by mixing cat litter in the paint. Once dried, paint cans are to be put out with your weekly trash.

Blue bins for recyclables can be obtained by calling the D.P.W. at 458-0790 or call the Village Clerk at 458-0900.  We will need your name, address, and the number of Blue Bins requested. There is a limit of 2 blue bins per household. They are usually delivered on Fridays.

3. ELECTRONICS (E-Waste)

Under a new State Law, Electronic Waste (“E-Waste”) Recycling can help rid your home or office of the unwanted old electronics.  The list includes microwaves, computers, monitors, mice, keyboards, DVD players, VCR’s, fax machines, printers and more.  Go to Electronic Recycling Information for more details on how to dispose of your E-waste.

Unfortunately we are not able to pick up E-Waste at this time; you can dispose of them at any local electronic store or Recycling facility.  (Best Buy stores or The Salvation Army on Erie Blvd East are a couple of examples).

5.  Fall Leaf Pickup

Tips from OCRRA: www.ocrra.org

Onondaga County Resource Recovery Agency (OCRRA) Recommends leaving grass clippings on the lawn! Grass clippings are 80 to 85 percent water. If you mow your lawn once a week, the clippings will filter down and decompose within 7-10 days. This also reduces the amount of fertilizer you need by 25 -30% by returning nutrients to soil. Use as mulch, place up to one inch thick around the base of shrubs. The mulch will prevent water loss and eventually decompose. Compost them. Mix with leaves, wood chips or garden materials.
