Refuse, Recycling & Yard Waste

Refuse & Recycling Collection

Sanitation pick-up for household garbage is two times per week. Do not put garbage cans by the curb, as the Village will pick-up the garbage by the side of the house. Garbage cans must have close fitting (water tight) covers and durable handles. We do not under any circumstances pick-up construction debris or hazardous waste.

Recycle cans and newspapers are to be brought out curbside on alternate Wednesdays for pick-up. The Recycling Schedule (PDF) is color coded for pick-up dates. Also check the Recyclables List (PDF) to find out what can and cannot be recycled and how it should be handled.

Bulk Items

Two(2) bulk items, i.e. couch/table/mattress, can be placed curbside every Tuesday night and will be picked-up sometime Wednesday after recycles is taken care of.

White Goods

Stoves, Dryers, Refrigerators, etc. are picked-up on Wednesday by appointment only. These items are to be placed curbside on the Tuesday night prior to the scheduled appointment. Appointments can be made by calling 631-475-4300, ext. 130, Monday through Friday 9 am to 4:30 pm.

Yard Waste

Bagged grass will not be picked-up.

Leaves must be placed in paper or plastic bags and brought curbside on your second garbage day on alternate weeks. Check the Recycling Schedule (PDF) for correct pick-up dates.

Loose leaves will only be picked up from November 18th through December 13th. During that time the Village will pick up bagged and un-bagged leaves brought to the curb. Loose leaves should be raked to the curb or in front of the property line. Do not mix sticks, bottles, rocks, or other debris in leaf piles. Also do not block storm drains with leaf piles. Please note, during loose leave pick-up they do not follow a scheduled pick-up. A payloader starts at one end of the Village and works its way around and when it's done going around, it starts the loop all over again. There are no appointments for loose leaves.
