Village cleanup April 30-May 5

I f you’re looking for a place to dispose of the brush, leaves, and tree branches that are littered about your yard, you may want to consider leaving it curbside.

Village officials have declared April 30-May 5 as cleanup days and will be offering curbside pickup of natural debris throughout the week.

Beginning on April 30, employees with the Department of Public Works will collect and dispose of natural debris left in front of village residents’ homes. For purposes of the cleanup, natural debris will consist of leaves, brush, and small tree limbs.

Crews expect to start their clean-up at the northern end of the village, near Neddo Street, and will work their way south finishing on Montcalm Avenue near the end of the week.

Although they likely won’t get to the southern end of the village until May 5, officials are asking that all debris be placed on the curb on April 30.

“We will be making one pass through the village and that will be it,” said Mayor Peter Telisky.

Officials ask that grass clippings, brush, leaves, and other vegetation be placed in clear plastic bags.

“We will not pick it up if it’s not in a clear plastic bag,” said Don Williams, superintendent of public works. Crews will not collect garbage and any trash left curbside will be left there.

Tree limbs are permissible but shouldn’t be any longer than four feet and no larger than one inch in diameter. Limbs should be tied in bunches for easy pick-up.

The village has secured two 55 cubic yard containers from Washington County Solid Waste to dispose of the waste.

It’s expected that students from Whitehall High School will aid the village’s effort May 2 to collect litter from the streets.

Residents who would like to spend some time cleaning up the village during the week are encouraged to do so, but are advised that village crews will not return to a street from which they have already collected debris.

Anyone who has questions is encouraged to call the village offices at 499-0871.
