The Jamestown Board of Public Utilities announces Yard Waste Site hours for the 2016 Season.

Hours of the Yard Waste Site this year are as follows: 9 a.m. – 1 p.m. Saturdays, April 9 through November 12; and 2 – 7 p.m. Wednesdays, effective May 11- September 28.

The BPU Yard Waste Site is located at 1001 Monroe Street at the dead end of Monroe Street, off Eighth Street.

The Yard Waste Site is restricted to use by BPU Solid Waste residential customers only, as it is their solid waste rates that pay for operation of the Site.

BPU Solid Waste customers who want to use the Site must display a 2015-2016 BPU Yard Waste Site sticker on the rear driver side window of their vehicle. The window stickers are free-of-charge to BPU Solid Waste residential customers; however, only one sticker will be provided for each customer account. Residents will not be provided access to the Site without an approved 2015-16 sticker.

The window stickers are available at BPU Customer Service, 92 Steele Street, open from 9 a.m – 4 p.m. Mondays-Wednesdays and 8 a.m. – 5 p.m. Thursdays-Fridays. Once again, only one window sticker will be available per Solid Waste residential account. Contractors will not be permitted to use the site.

Use of the window stickers will allow BPU employees who staff the Site to identify BPU Solid Waste residential customers and assure that non-BPU Solid Waste customers do not use the Site.

The Site will accept leaves, grass clippings and brush. Metal, lumber, wood, tires, drywall and other construction materials will not be accepted. Electronic and large items such as couches, livingroom chairs and mattresses will not be accepted, but pick-up with a fee may be arranged year-round by contacting the Garbage Hotline at 661-1651.

A list of acceptable yard waste will be included with the sticker. For more information, BPU customers may call the Garbage Hotline at 661-1651.
