Trash & Recycling Collection Information During the COVID-19 Pandemic

Due to the outbreak of corona virus and state directives to limit personnel at Town Facilities, Waste Management Administration employees are operating remotely from 8:00 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday.

With so many families staying home during the COVID-19 pandemic, our refuse collection crews are picking up significantly more trash than usual. The increase in volume is placing an even greater strain on our work crews. During this difficult time, we are asking residents to be mindful of the limits on placing garbage at the curb. No more than 6 cans or bags of garbage or allowed each garbage day. No more than 4 bulk items are allowed on your second garbage day. There is no "special pick up" service. If your needs exceed the curbside collection service, you must hire a refuse removal company. Residents that place more items than curbside collection allows will receive a "Notice To Comply" and no items will be collected.

Additionally, recyclable materials markets have collapsed completely. The Town of Huntington recycling processor is stockpiling material if and when markets become available. Because of this, we are directing all Town of Huntington residential collection companies to leave contaminated recycling at the curb. If you are not sure what is acceptable for recycling, please visit the "Do's and Don'ts of Curbside Recycling" for more information. If your recycling was not picked up, please remove the contaminated materials and place it out on your next bottle and can recycling day or leave it at the curb and it will be picked up on your next garbage collection day.  We apologize for the inconvenience.

Yard waste collection is still scheduled to be collected; however it is not a priority at this time. Small amounts of yard waste may be collected along with your garbage during this pandemic. During this emergency, we have also instituted a ten bag yard waste limit on the amount that can be placed curbside. Do not place more than that amount curbside at one time or the entire amount of yard waste will remain uncollected. If you are having your spring clean-up done by an outside landscaper, you should either instruct them to remove the yard waste they create or make sure they leave any amount in excess of the ten bags behind your property line and not at the curb. Your cooperation in assisting us will be greatly appreciated.
