The “Bulk Pickup Program” was developed in 2002 in response to the overwhelming requests of our residents for a means of removing items that are not considered “ordinary household waste” and cannot be removed by our weekly trash service.
Through the efforts and cooperation of the Mayor’s Office, the Clerk’s Office and the DPW, a procedure and comprehensive list were developed detailing specific items and the fee for the removal of each item. The cost of running this program will be totally supported by the residents who choose to take advantage of the service. The fees charged will cover the expenses of the Village (i.e. tipping fees, equipment, manpower) and are not intended to generate any income to the Village.
The program will run as conditions allow.
Pickups are subject to change in the event of an unanticipated occurrence in the Village which requires the immediate services and attention of our DPW. In such event, residents will be contacted at their day phone number to reschedule the pickup.
Since its inception, we have been monitoring and refining the program guidelines in an effort to meet the needs of our residents. We appreciate the patience and cooperation of our residents as we work together to troubleshoot any situations that may arise.
We encourage all of our residents to utilize this program, and we welcome your feedback and suggestions, both positive and critical, so that we may continue to improve upon the services that we offer to you, the residents of the Village of Canastota.
