Yard-waste pickup starts Monday April 4
We can’t start spring cleaning with our fingers crossed! But while we’re all twisting our digits, hoping against hope that the snow has finally stopped falling this year, that time has certainly come.
The equinox passed two weekends ago and this Friday is the first day of April-no joke!
So while we may not have seen the last of the snow, the village DPW stands ready to haul away whatever yard waste you can bring to the curb on Mondays April 4 and 18.
Subsequent pickups will be made May 2 and 16, June 6 and 20, July 5 and 18, Aug. 1 and 15, Sept.6 and 19 and Oct. 3 and 17.
By then it should be snowing again.
