DEPARTMENT OF PUBLIC WORKS SPRING DEBRIS REMOVAL PROGRAM
Residents are asked to place their yard debris curbside (not in the street) in a pile (no bags) and the Village Public Work Crews will begin pickup on April 13th, as their work schedule allows. No yard debris should be placed at curb until a week before this date. The last day to put out debris is May 31. Crews will make one last pickup starting on this date. This is a “one and done” pickup, meaning once we complete a street, we will not be back until the fall pickup. Any debris that has to be disposed of before and after our spring pickup will be the responsibility of the resident. Residents can bring yard debris to the DPW, located at 100 Wood Lane. Yard debris is considered leaves, grass clippings, shrubs and branches no larger than 6 inches in diameter and 3 feet long. We would like to thank you for your cooperation and please feel free to call (315) -331-4770 if you have any additional questions.
