The first of eight Oyster Bay Town Homeowners Cleanup Program dates and the first of four Paper Shredding Programs dates for 2017 will take place on Saturday, April 29, according to Town Councilman Chris J. Coschignano.

“Start the warm weather off strong with some spring cleaning and take any clutter from your home, garage, or storage shed along with any trash to be recycled before the trash piles up,” Councilman Coschignano said. “Residents within the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal District looking to clear up any clutter in their homes can take advantage of the Homeowners Cleanup by taking unwanted, non-hazardous trash or paper to the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal Complex, located at 101 Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road, Old Bethpage, from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m.

The Councilman noted that proof of district residency must be shown.  Additionally, if you plan to bring any campers, boats or boat trailers, proof of ownership must be provided and signed over to the Town. The boats must be drained of all oil, gas and other fluids, and all batteries must be removed.

Bushes, tree limbs, fence posts and similar items will be accepted as is and need not be broken into smaller pieces. Used tires, large metal items in excess of four feet, clean fill, clean broken concrete, and boats and boat trailers will also be accepted. Passenger cars, vans, pickup trucks and small trailers are admitted to the program. Six-wheel or larger vehicles are not permitted.

Councilman Coschignano noted that the next Homeowners Cleanup Date will be Saturday, May 13 and the next Paper Shredding date will be Saturday, June 24. For more information, residents can call 677-5943 or visit the Town’s website at
