BULK PICKUP INFORMATION
The Town’s bulk pickup program is a monthly service performed by your carter on the Wednesday, Thursday, or Friday that coincides with your regular garbage collection day according to the schedule as outlined on the calendar.  The program is designed for the pickup of household items generated by the homeowner.  Bulk can be brought out to the curb the weekend prior to your bulk date.  Bulk must be out at the curb the night before your bulk pickup day or it may not be picked up.

Building material, construction and demolition debris and refuse generated by a contractor are NOT  included in the bulk pickup program.  A modest amount of building material (up to two 50-pound bundles, under 5 feet in length) generated by the do-it-yourself homeowner will be collected.

ACCEPTABLE HOUSEHOLD BULK

  Refrigerators, washing machines, dryers, water heaters, stoves/ranges, room air-conditioners.  Refrigerator and freezer doors must be removed, according to NY State Penal Law § 270.10 Creating a Hazard. There might be a slight delay in pickup of these and scrap metal materials since these are picked up in a separate truck. Sofas, chairs, carpeting and padding tightly rolled, bundled, tied not exceeding 5 ft. in length, storm/screen windows and doors, interior closet and room doors.  Small quantities not more than 2 bundles, no longer than 5 feet and no heavier than 50 lbs. each will be collected of the following material:
