YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- The Town of Yorktown’s Refuse & Recycling Department is reminding residents that it has started leaf collection. Leaves packed in 30-gallon paper biodegradable bags will be collected by the R&R crews in the orange trucks until Dec. 13.
Paper leaf bags can be purchased at the R&R office (behind the police station) Monday through Saturday from 10:00 a.m. until 3:00 p.m. A bundle of 50 bags cost $20; or individually for $0.40.
Residents are also reminded that only leaves will be collected and that brush, branches and grass must be separated.
Since Nov. 5 is Election Day, leaf collection will be pushed to Nov. 6.
There will be no leaf collection on the week of Nov. 25 through Nov. 29 in observance of Thanksgiving.
