Located on the west side of the Halcott Highway Garage, the recycling center is always open. Separate bins are available for glass, metal and plastics #1, 2, 3, and 5. Newspaper, magazines and cardboard must be separated and placed in paper bags or tied in bundles. We are now accepting electronics for recycling. A separate shed is now on site for all acceptable electronics including: computers, CRT/LCD monitors, televisions, radios and cell phones. Help Halcott stay clean and please report any abuses.
The Town of Halcott offers a weekly drop-off service for those who do not choose to hire a hauler to pick up our garbage. Halcott residents only, that is, renters and landowners, may take bags of household waste in clear plastic bags, at $3 a bag, to the transfer station located at the Highway Garage. The hours of this mini transfer station will be 10 AM to 12 noon every Sunday. Instead of cash, we will be using punch cards. One punch card will allow the deposit of three bags of trash and may be purchased at $9 each from our Town Clerk, Pattie Warfield, 254-6441. Her hours are: 3 – 5pm Wednesdays; and 10 – 12 noon the 3rd Saturday of every month. Cards may also be purchased from Sam’s Country Store at $10 each. Punch cards will not be available at the transfer station and no trash will be accepted without a punch card. Please bear with us as we get this system up and running. Don’t forget that recyclables may also be deposited, as they have been, at same location free of charge. These must be separated, with caps removed. Following items are accepted: newspapers, tied or placed in paper bags; magazines, tied; cardboard, tied; plastics #1,2,3,5; glass containers; aluminum cans; electronics.
The Town Board has been working hard to make this option a reality for our residents. We hope that it makes life a little easier!
