2019 Town Clean Up Day

2019 Town Clean Up Day

Dear New Lebanon Residents:

Please be advised that the 2019 Clean Up Day (AKA: Dump Day or Trash Day) will be held on May 18, 2019 from 8:00 am – 2:00 pm, rain or shine.  For those of you who are not familiar with Clean Up Day, this is a one day event held annually by the Town for its residents to provide access to trash dumpsters also known as roll-offs. The roll-offs (dumpsters/bins) are set up in the Town Hall parking lot in the space between the Highway Garage and the basketball courts and behind the Highway Garage.  The fee for this service is a non-perishable food donation to Charlie’s Pantry which can be dropped off at the Town Hall when you pick up your punch card.  Please be mindful of the expiration dates on your donated food as expired food cannot be accepted.

This event is a structured event, meaning that you don’t just pull up and off-load into a dumpster.  There are separate dumpsters/bins for different categories of items and it is operated by a great group of volunteers who will be assisting you in off-loading your vehicles, which helps keeps the line moving.  For this reason, it is a great idea to keep tires at the top of your pile so that they can easily be off-loaded and rolled to their designated dumpster while you are waiting in line to off-load the rest.  It is also a good idea to separate metal and appliances toward the back or bottom of your pile as there are designated bins for those items as well.

We are always very grateful for the generous folks who donate their time and muscle, especially on a Saturday, to be a part of the off-loading crew.  They are fabulous to work with and actually make ‘trash day’ a fun day.   If you are interested in volunteering we would be happy to add you to the crew simple call our office at (518) 794-8884 to request to be placed on our list.

For residents with physical/medical challenges who may need assistance getting their items loaded and/ or transported to town hall, please call us well in advance of the event so that we have ample time to try to find an available volunteer(s) with a large enough vehicle and who is physically able to assist you.  We currently have generous Town Officials who have offered their services in the past.

We look forward to see you in the Spring!
