Garbage Collection Limits
The Town has a multi-year contract with Pinto for the collection of garbage on a weekly basis. This contract has specific weekly limits in order to keep the cost down for our residents.
The limits are as follows:
- Containers, bags or bushels shall not exceed 60 lbs. in weight, excluding bulk items.
- Material not in cans or bags should be securely tied in bundles, not more than 4’ in length.
- The weekly pickup limit is 10 bags or containers
- One bulk item is included as part of the 10 items
Large remodeling projects either by homeowners or contractors which create a large quantity of heavy or bulk items should contact Pinto for discounted options, or other vendor, for removal of these items which could not be taken by a normal weekly pickup, thus creating a violation of Town Law.
According to Town Law, Section 218-4 (B) litter and garbage shall not be stored or piled on land within the Town except to facilitate delivery to a refuse collector. Items shall not be stored in anticipation of such collection for a period in excess of 72 consecutive hours, without resulting in violation of Town Law.
Each and every day a violation of this Section of law continues, it shall constitute a separate violation and penalties shall be applicable to each separate offense. Penalties for every violation of this law shall be punishable by a maximum fine of $250 or by imprisonment for not more than 15 days, or both.
