Spring Yard Waste Pickup
*Note: We will be using the OLD WARDS for this pick-up, not the newly re-mapped wards.
The Town of Queensbury Highway Department is pleased to announce our annual spring yard waste RESIDENTIAL pick-up. We would like to thank all of you for your cooperation during last year’s pick-up and take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation during this year’s event.
It is imperative that we adhere to our scheduling. Please make note of the dates we will be in your ward, the date which you should have your items at the road side, and give special attention to the dos and don’ts that pertain to this particular pick-up.
As in previous years, yard waste must be put into biodegradable paper bags. This allows us to properly dispose of waste that is not harmful to the environment. It is imperative that only yard waste is placed into bags. Bags filled with items other than those stated will NOT be accepted. Bags put out too early will disintegrate from the rain and weather.
Brush pick up means branches that fell down during the winter from snow, ice and wind. This residential yard pick up is not meant to clear cut lots, cut down trees or shrubs, etc. Please adhere to these rules.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Town of Queensbury Highway Department at 761-8211 between the hours of 7:00 am and 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
