Drats, I missed the garbage pickup again! After years of living in a co-op, where I would bring my garbage and recycling to a “garbage house’ and the town would pick it up at some mysterious time, I am now in a house. Which means I need to pay attention to what gets picked up on which days.
So, I did a little research and thought I would share the official schedules for the Towns of Monroe, Tuxedo, Chester and the Villages of Harriman and Monroe. The official sites are listed on the bottom for more information and contact numbers.
MONROE (Town & Village), and HARRIMAN (Village)
Monday (Village): Regular household garbage pickup.

Wednesday: Recylables. Bins can be picked up from the Town Highway Garage at 87 Mine Road.
The Recycling pickup includes co-mingled (tin, aluminum, foil, plastic containers & cartons) and mixed papers. Do not put co-mingled items in plastic bags.
