Refuse Update-Click Here


Effective January 1, 2012, private and municipal solid waste haulers and transporters in New York State are prohibited from collecting electronic waste according to the NYS Electronics Equipment Recycling and Reuse Act from the NYS DEC.  As a result of the NYS law, the Broome County Landfill can not accept electronics for disposal in the landfill from private or municipal haulers and transporters.

Town of Union residents (Fairmont Park, Westover and Village of Endicott) can dispose of these electronics at the C&D Yard on Scarborough Drive in Endwell.Click on this link to see  What Can Be Recycled? .

Recyclable materials are collected once each week on the designated refuse collection day. The Town of Union provides each refuse customer with a recycling container, at no charge. Refuse recycling pick-up begins at 6:00 AM.  To be serviced, materials, in a recycling container, must be out behind the curb by 6:00 AM on collection day.  Recyclables that do not fit in the recycling container may be put in brown paper bags, labeled recycling and placed next to the recycling container.
