The Village of Lowville Department of Public Works would like to
announce that it will be conducting Spring Clean-Up beginning May 1, 2017, and
ending May 25, 2017. During this period,
the Public Works Department will be picking up tree limbs, brush, leaves, and
general yard debris that is placed at the curbside. The piles must be placed
between the sidewalk and the street so that the equipment used can reach the
material. Do not place your debris in
Please take note that only reasonably sized piles resulting from general
winter damage and normal yard clean-up will be picked up by village crews. Large piles resulting from the removal
of trees, hedgerows and such by property owners will not be picked up by
village crews. Residents must make
private arrangements to have these types of wastes removed from their property.
be sure that all piles of limbs, debris, brush, etc. are individually
sorted. Piles that are mixed together
will not be picked up.
note that the Public Works Department has constructed debris disposal areas at
our Sewage Treatment Plant outside the fence.
Residents may transport their own limbs, debris, leaves, brush, etc. to
the Village Sewage Treatment Plant located on East State Street in the Village
if they desire. This may be done anytime
during daylight hours during the spring and summer months. There are signs located along the entrance
drive to the Treatment Plant to direct residents to the disposal areas for such
wastes at the plant. This was created as
a service to VILLAGE RESIDENTS ONLY.
Commercial tree removal and/or landscaping professionals should find
alternative locations to discard their debris.
do not place piles of limbs, debris, leaves, brush, etc. in the streets; doing
so poses a serious safety hazard to motorists and pedestrians as well as acting
to plug up the drainage inlets during rainstorms.
The Public Works Department wishes to thank you in advance for your full cooperation in this matter. It is only through your cooperation that we will continue these services.
