The Village of Brockport’s Code Enforcement Officer has published a Trash Collection Notice to let village residents know that he is serious about keeping trash off the streets as the end of the college semester draws near.
Basically, the notice states the rules on putting trash out by the curb; and warns the landlords that they will be billed for any refuse the DPW has to cart away from in front of their college rental properties.
The following Trash Collection Notice was published on the Village website and on page 20 of the April 29, 2015 edition of The Stylus.
TRASH COLLECTION NOTICE
As students prepare to move out at the end of the year, refuse left behind is an issue that Village residents have dealt with on an annual basis. This year, the Village is taking a proactive stance, to ensure that the community will remain safe and sanitary during the move out period.
Beginning Monday, May 12, 2015 Village Code Enforcement Officers will begin patrolling neighborhoods to make note of addresses where refuse items are being piled up. At the end of each property’s regular garbage collection day, the Village of Brockport Department of Public Works will be making rounds to clean up any items left behind.
Please note that this is not a free pick up. The property owner will be billed for the collection of any refuse by the Department of Public Works. To ensure this does not take place, contact your refuse collection company to verify what they will pick up and make sure any items left behind are brought back from the road.
Please keep all refuse in containers with adequately sealed lids and ensure that all refuse is placed neatly at the curb for collection. Do not place any refuse in the road or block any sidewalks. Refuse may not be placed curbside more than 24 hours prior to scheduled collection. Electronic items will not be picked up by refuse collectors.
If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to contact the Building/Code
Enforcement Department at (585) 637-5300 Ext. 14
Thank you for doing your part to help our Village remain clean for everyone!
