The Town of Clifton Park and County Waste have reached an agreement to continue to offer free yard waste pick-up for all residents from April through November. Now that the inclement winter weather has passed, this program will start Monday, April 10th.
“County Waste has been a tremendous corporate partner of the Town of Clifton Park for many years. This service is invaluable to thousands of Clifton Park residents,” said Town Supervisor Phil Barrett.
Leaves, grass clippings, tree and shrub trimmings and other brush will be collected in brown paper yard waste bags only. No yard waste will be collected from garbage containers. Small, bundled brush that is less than four feet long and three inches in diameter will also be collected. Bundles need to be tied so as one person can pick up the bundle.
Items that will not be collected include: tree or shrub roots of any type, tree stumps of logs, waste products including household garbage, pressure treated wood, railroad ties and building debris.
Yard waste pickup days will be every Monday, Tuesday and Friday. Residents that live South of Ballston Lake Road and Kinns Road will have their pick-ups on Monday or Tuesday. Residents North of Kinns Road and Ballston Lake Road will have their yard waste picked up on Fridays. At various times of the year when yard waste debris pick up is heavier, the pick-up can deviate from the established schedule
Residents are reminded not to put your bags of yard waste out for collection until the night before pick-up day to keep our yards and streets looking tidy.
The Town Transfer Station also accepts yard waste all year long during regular business hours from Clifton Park residents only. No permit is needed but an ID is required. Extended hours at the Transfer Station for Spring Clean Up / Green Up Week will include Sundays April 23rd and April 30th for the collection of leaves and brush only. All other items will be accepted during regular hours on Tuesday through Saturday with the appropriate permit or fee. More information can be found at the Transfer Station page.
