Recycling is good for our environment. However, it must be done carefully to be effective. Not everything is recyclable. When non-recyclable or dirty items are picked-up and added to the recycling load in a truck, the entire load may get rejected at the Rockland County Solid Waste Facility and end up as garbage.
New recycling bins are available at Town Hall in the office of the Department of Environmental Control. Please call 845.639.2111 to be sure the bins are in stock.
There will be no recycling collection on the following holidays:
NEW YEAR’S DAY; MEMORIAL DAY; INDEPENDENCE DAY; LABOR DAY; THANKSGIVING; and CHRISTMAS.
Twice the normal quantity will be collected on the next pickup day.
Christmas/New Year Special Pickup: For residents who normally have their recycling collected on Fridays, the Town has arranged a special pick up for Saturday, December 26, 2020 and Saturday January 2, 2021. Residents are encouraged to place their bins out at the curb on Friday evening to ensure their recycling is not missed.
Keep paper and food containers separated. Cardboard boxes, flattened, not larger than 3′ square, tied (please use cotton twine) into a separate bundle. Do not use cardboard boxes, paper or plastic bags as containers for other recyclables. Empty and rinse food containers. DO not recycle containers for motor oil, auto anti-freeze etc.
