COUNTY IS NOT COLLECTING CONSTRUCTION DEBRIS
Release Date: October 14, 2014

Westchester County  has advised the public works department that they will not be accepting garbage that had previously been collected by many municipalities including Greenburgh.   The county has decided to have a zero tolerance level which  means that if you are doing work in your house the debris will not be picked up by the town – a significant change in policy that will impact residents around the county.  The following is a copy of the memo we received from the county. 
 
We are concerned about the possibility of illegal dumping.  If you see illegally dumping  along the roads please call the police department and provide them with license plate numbers: 682-5300.
PAUL FEINER
 
As you all should be well aware by now, construction debris (C&D), be it tile, roofing shingles, wood cabinetry, plaster wall boards, concrete rock, etc. should not be collected or included with the garbage destined  for incineration at the Charles Point Resource Recovery facility.    Be advised that  there has been a noticeable higher amount of construction debris mixed with garbage being delivered  to the District’s Transfer Stations.   The County and City Carting staff are checking every load.  All loads mixed with C&D are being pushed aside and reloaded into  30 cubic yard containers.
