Residential Refuse Pick-Up

DPW picks up residential refuse weekly.

DPW picks up your trash once a week based on the pick-up schedule. Please be considerate of your neighbors when placing your trash at the curb and help us maintain efficient, low cost service by adhering to the following guidelines when preparing and placing your trash out for pick-up:

  • Place trash between the sidewalk and the curb no earlier than 6:00 pm the day before and no later than 7:00 am the day of your regularly scheduled pick-up day
  • Remove containers from the curb within 12 hours after they are emptied
  • Trash must be placed in proper containers
  • Garbage cans shall be no larger than 35 gallons in size
  • Each container shall weigh no more than 50 pounds each
  • Each garbage can shall be properly sealed
  • There is a limit of 6 standard 35 gallon cans of refuse per week per pick-up
  • Containers and trash must not be stored in front of property, rather along side or in the rear of property out of public site
  • Landlords are responsible for the failure of tenants to comply with refuse rules and are responsible for all special pick-up fees
  • Refuse from outside the village is not allowed
  • You may request an extra trash pick-up if necessary for an additional charge by contacting the DPW to make special arrangements

IT HAPPENED ONE SATURDAY NIGHT — 60 YEARS AGO

IT HAPPENED ONE SATURDAY NIGHT — 60 YEARS AGO Read more

According to a number of area sportscasters, it wasn’t supposed to happen that way—the East Rochester Bombers beating the Lyons Lions, 58-57.   While both basketball teams entered the game undefeated, Lyons was known as a powerhouse.  By looking at the history of the two teams, however, perhaps March 24, 1962, was destined to be different.  And what made the outcome of the contest all the more special was that it happened before a crowd estimated to be more than 10,000.
