Q. When is the garbage picked up in my neighborhood?
Garbage in the entire Village of North Hornell will be collected each Thursday.
City codes limit residences to putting out no more than five 30-gallon bags. All garbage must be held in a container.
In addition, the City will enforce violations of the state law requiring the separation of recyclables. “People are slacking off” in separating recyclables from regular garbage, according to Mayor Shawn D. Hogan, with increasing amounts of recyclable materials (e.g., cardboard, plastic, and newspapers) entering the waste stream at the Steuben County landfill – which, due to county tipping fees, in turn increase the garbage surcharge paid by residents.
Q. What is the Holiday Schedule for garbage pickup?
A. If your pick up day falls on or after the following holidays, your pick-up day will be delayed by one day: Memorial Day, 4th of July, Labor Day, Veteran's Day, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's. Any holiday that falls on a weekend will not affect your pick-up day. All other Holidays are normal pick up days.
