leaf bags

The Town of Queensbury Highway Department is pleased to announce our annual fall yard waste RESIDENTIAL pick-up.  We would like to thank all of you for your cooperation during fall pick-up and would like to take this opportunity to thank you in advance for your anticipated cooperation during this event.

As with our previous pick-ups, it is imperative that we adhere 100% to our scheduling.  Please make note of the dates when we will be in your ward, the date on which you should have your items at the roadside, and special attention to the do and do not that pertain to this particular pick-up.

As always, yard waste must be put into biodegradable paper bags.  This allows us to dispose of the waste in a way that is not harmful to the environment.  It is imperative that only yard waste is placed in bags.  Bags filled with items other than those stated and weighing more than 50 pounds will NOT be accepted.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Town of Queensbury Highway Department at 518-761-8211 between the hours of 7:00 am and 3:00 pm, Monday through Friday.
