Waste Pickup

WASTE PICK UP

We changed the pickup schedule for Bulk Waste. In the past we did it once a year in the fall. This created a two week period that turned the Village into an eyesore. We will now do it once a month all year long, weather permitting. We have also added a new category of waste to be picked up at your house. Electronic Waste or E-Waste can be picked up once a month with a phone call to DPW (458-0790).

1. WEEKLY WASTE AND RECYCLEABLES:

To look up what day your weekly waste and blue bin will be picked up click HERE.

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.

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.  They are usually delivered on Fridays.

Unsure what goes into the blue bins?  Visit  http://ocrra.org/how-do-i/recycle/recycle-at-home  where all your recycling questions will be answered.

2. BULK WASTE PICK UP:

Waste motor oil, car batteries, tires, asbestos products, paint cans with wet paint in them, Propane or fuel tanks, Construction debris or anything with Freon in them cannot be accepted. Homeowners are responsible for the proper disposal of those items.

  • Paint cans can be dried quicker by adding cat litter to the paint.
  • Residents can and are encouraged to put their small piles of brush and yard waste in paper bags. This will facilitate a cleaner and faster pickup.

3. ELECTRONICS (E-Waste)

All E-waste will be collected the same weeks as Bulk Waste and it’s as convenient as calling the D.P.W. at 458-0790 

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 computers, monitors, mice, keyboards, DVD players, VCR’s, fax machines, printers and more.  Another good thing, click this link for more details on Electronic Recycling Information

Unfortunately we are not able to pick up old televisions; you can dispose of them at any local electronic store or Recycling facility.  (Best Buy or Tech Reworks are a couple of examples).

4. BRUSH WASTE

   See Brush Pickup Schedule below.

  • D.P. W. employees picked up over 1300 Cubic Yards of brush last year.
  • Place piles next to the road and not in the roadway or under overhead wires.
  • Brush and Grass clippings are not to be placed in the roadway at any time.
  • Grass clippings MUST be in paper bags (NO PLASTIC BAGS) and placed to the curb on their trash day during the brush pickup schedule to be picked up. Grass clippings not bagged after July 1st 2009 will not be picked up,  and a letter of violation will be sent.
  • Residents can and are encouraged to put their small piles of brush and yard waste in paper bags also. This is to facilitate a cleaner and faster pickup.

5.  Fall Leaf Pickup

·     D.P.W. employees pick up on average (575 yards) of both loose and bagged leaves annually.

·     D.P.W. crews pickup leaves until snow covers the piles or the leaves are gone.

·     Please put small piles of leaves in paper bags.

·     Leaves in plastic bags will not be accepted.

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.
