The fourth of eight 2009 Homeowners Cleanup programs for Oyster Bay Town will take place on Saturday, July 18, according to Town Councilwoman Beth Faughnan.
“Residents only (no businesses) in the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal District may take unwanted rubbish to the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal Complex, Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road, Old Bethpage, from 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m.,” Faughnan said. “Bushes, tree limbs, fence posts and similar items will be accepted as is and need not be broken into smaller pieces. Used tires, large metal items in excess of 4 feet, yard waste, clean fill and clean broken concrete will also be accepted. Passenger cars, vans, pickup trucks and small trailers are admitted to the program. Six-wheel or larger vehicles are not permitted. Proof of residency must be shown.”
If you live in one of the following communities or garbage districts, you are not eligible to participate in the Homeowners Cleanup Program: Bayville, Brookville, Centre Island, Cove Neck, Lattingtown, Laurel Hollow, Matinecock, Mill Neck, Muttontown, Old Brookville, Old Westbury, Oyster Bay Cove, Roslyn Harbor, Sea Cliff, Upper Brookville and Glenwood-Glen Head Garbage District.
“For many people, when the cleaning urge hits, they just want to get rid of the rubbish as soon as possible and not have to look at it until the next collection day,” Faughnan said. “If you’re one of those people, a Homeowners Cleanup day might be just the catalyst you need to tackle that garage or basement cleanup you’ve been putting off.”
Faughnan noted that additional Homeowners Cleanup dates are: Saturday, Aug. 8; Saturday, Sept. 26; Sunday, Oct. 25; and Saturday, Nov. 7. Residents can call 677-5943 if they have any questions.
