Matinecock Village Garbage and Recycling Schedule

Dear Village Resident:

As of February 1, 2020, garbage pick up service will be provided by a new carting contractor, Emmi Industries.

The Village's five year contract with Daniel F. Allen had expired, and under New York State law, had to be publicly re-bid. Emmi Industries was the lowest responsible bidder, and this will provide the Village and the taxpayers good service over the term of the contract.

Our prior carter did a fine job servicing the Village, but the Village was obligated by law to award the contract to Emmi Industries. Even though there will be a change of personnel and possibly some inconvenience, the new company has a good reputation, and we are confident that it will provide good service to our residents.

Your pick-up schedule will remain the same for the immediate future. If your regular pick-up days are on Monday and Thursday or on Tuesday and Friday, your days will remain the same. Residents on the south side of Duck Pond Road will continue to be picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays. Recyclables will be picked up on your regular days; recyclables will no longer be picked up on Wednesdays as in the past. In addition, residents can now co-mingle cardboard items such as boxes and paper shopping bags with newspaper since Emmi Industries has sorting facilities that will separate cardboard from newspaper. Large items such as old furniture and appliances will be picked up by prior arrangement on the second of your regular pick-up days. (For example, if your regular pick-up days are on Monday and Thursday, heavy items will be picked up on Thursday). If you should have a large item to dispose of, please contact Mr. Edward F. von Briesen (Village Public Works Commissioner) at 759-7021 to make arrangements.

Emmi Industries requests that if you keep your garbage in the garage, please remember to unlock the door the night before so that the driver can make the pick-up. In addition, please try to have your trash ready for pick-up the night before your scheduled day since the driver begins his route at 6:30 a.m. As previously stated above, the current pick-up schedule will remain in place for the foreseeable future; however, should changes be made in the future, affected residents will be notified by mail, and the announcement will also be posted on the Village website (matinecockvillage.org).. If you should need to call Emmi Industries, please call 516-322-2099.

Also, please do not hesitate to contact Mr. von Briesen at 759-7021 if there are any problems or questions. Thank you for your patience and cooperation during this transition period.

Sincerely,
Mayor & Board of Trustees
