Yard Waste Collection Summer 2017

Yard Waste Collection Summer 2017

Yard waste collection in the Village of Ballston Spa will be conducted in much the same manner as in previous years. There are some modifications that are being made to accomplish this task:

1) County Waste has notified their customers that they will be collecting properly packaged leaves and grass clippings only. County Waste is REQUIRING the brown biodegradable bags ONLY. (Do not use plastic trash cans).

2) The collection day for Ballston Spa has been established as Thursday.

3) Village of Ballston Spa Public Works crews will be collecting properly prepared brush.
a. Properly packaged brush is tied in manageable size bundles (Easy lift) b. The bundles must be tied with string or twine. No wire or plastic is allowed.
c. No brush lengths are to exceed 4 feet
d. Maximum diameter of any items in the bundle is 3 inches

Department of Public Works personnel WILL NOT pick up improperly packaged yard waste.

Items that could be generally classified as “rubbish” will not be picked up at any time. Disposal of this type of material is the responsibility of the property owner.
General items would include, but not be limited to:

1) Furniture such as mattresses, tables, couches and the like.

2) Electronics items such as TVs and computer equipment. These require additional disposal considerations for hazardous material content

3) Landscaping timbers and/or paving stones

4) Bicycles, tires, etc.

5) Construction debris of any kind.

Spring cleanup exception (Monday, April 17- Friday, May 12, 2017)

Department of Public Works employees will be supporting a “spring cleanup” effort in the Village. This effort will run from Monday April 17th through Friday May 12th. During this period ONLY, the DPW will collect small diameter stumps, root ball, garden plants, and small quantities of dirt and stones. They should be placed at the curb with brush.
Spring cleanup effort ends Friday, May 12th. This will allow the DPW personnel to move on to other tasks that we call on them for in the summer months.

Curbside loose leaf pickup for the fall will be done in the same manner as in the past.

Thank you,

Robert D. Cavanaugh
Commissioner of Public Works
