2019 sanitation calendar narrative made easier to understand ---all garbage/recyclables out by 7am
Release Date: January 02, 2019


Some people have told me that they are still confused about the new 2019 sanitation schedule. There are separate calendars for different areas and some people (not all) are stressed, trying to figure out how the changes will impact them.  


I asked town staff to come up with a simple narrative. I hope that the following will be helpful.    It’s really a simple schedule –with enhanced services—weekly paper and commingled pickup and twice a week sanitation. The following should help you understand the calendar.


The mailing house has accepted responsibility for the mistake (sending out some wrong calendars) and will be absorbing the costs. Those who did not receive the calendar should receive one soon.


I feel that these constant e mails and robo calls about the sanitation/recycling changes may be over kill but it’s not overkill for those who were still confused. And – it’s our job to make  you less stressed, not more.



The Town of Greenburgh Department of Public Works is implementing a new recycling program that increases the frequency of weekly recycling while continuing to provide two regular solid waste (garbage) collection days each non-holiday week. For the 2019 Sanitation Calendar please note the following:

  •          Solid Waste (garbage) collection days remain the same as years past (i.e. either Monday & Thursday or Tuesday & Friday depending on where you reside in the Town);
  •          Commingle recycling will now be collected every Wednesday;
  •          Paper Recycling collection will now be collected on either a Monday, Tuesday, Thursday or Friday depending on which quadrant you reside in within the Town. Please refer to the 2019 Sanitation Calendar that was sent to you. If you have any questions regarding which Sanitation Calendar to follow, please refer to the documents at the following weblink for further information:  http://www.greenburghny.com/Cit-e-Access/webpage.cfm?TID=10&TPID=1626
