Brush will be picked up as time allows and as posted on Village Community Board, usually April through early September. The Village does not clean up after a contractor. If you hire a contractor, you must hire them to remove debris.
Branches should be placed at the curb with the cut end of the wood facing out. The pieces can be long, but not more than 10 inches in diameter. Wood that contains nails or staples should be placed separately so we do not put it through the wood chipper.
In the spring, other lawn debris must be in brown bags. In the fall, leaves will be vacuumed when left at the curb.
All Other Waste
All other items should be disposed of properly. The Town of New Scotland Transfer Station is open on Saturdays throughout the year and on Wednesdays from May through September. For more information, please call 518-475-0385
Household Hazardous Waste
The next Household Hazardous Waste Day will occur in the summer of 2024.
