Town of Oyster Bay residents are invited to attend the second Homeowners Cleanup Program, scheduled for Saturday, May 13. According to Town Councilwoman Rebecca M. Alesia, the cleanup will take place from 8:30 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal Complex in Old Bethpage.
“Residents within the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal District looking to dispose of garbage cluttering up their homes can take advantage of the Homeowners Cleanup Program by taking unwanted, non-hazardous trash to the Town’s Solid Waste Disposal Complex, located at 101 Bethpage-Sweet Hollow Road in Old Bethpage,” Councilwoman Alesia said. “With the warmer weather setting in, residents can use the Town Homeowner Cleanup days to clear any clutter from their homes or garages.”
The Councilwoman noted that proof of district residency must be shown at all events. 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.
