                                                      Town Supervisor,
Dear Town of Cortlandt Residents:
                                                       Linda D. Puglisi

   We thank all Town residents for their participation in our Refuse and
Recycling programs. Your assistance makes it possible for the Town to
reach the New York State and Westchester County Solid Waste Management
goals.

  During 2007, the Department of Environmental Services will continue the
weekly refuse, paper recycling, commingled recycling and seasonal leaf
and holiday tree collection programs, bulk trash routes collection program
and tire recycling, and the “Clean Air Act” bulk and metal recycling programs.
The leaf pick up transfer program will continue and are part of our services
we provide for our residents.

   The Town has recycling bins for sale ($8.00 each) at our D.E.S./Sanitation
Office at (914-737-0100) or the Supervisor’s Office at (914-734–1002). During
the year 2007, we will continue efforts to enforce recycling participation.
We appreciate your understanding and look forward to your cooperation in
order that the Town can achieve the goal of increased recycling to meet our
mandates, thereby protecting the environment for years to come.

   Our Town is fortunate that we have our own Sanitation Division. Many
communities must pay outside refuse companies. Our sanitation services
are included in our tax structure and therefore our residents do not have that
added expense.

              REMEMBER TO RECYCLE AND THANK YOU!

                          Yours truly,


                          Linda D. Puglisi, Town Supervisor

            SOLID WASTE COLLECTION
Welcome to the Town of Cortlandt, Sanitation Division. We provide town
residents and businesses with curbside collections of refuse, bulk trash,
recycling programs (paper, plastic, glass, metal, tire and freon).
Because of the vast size of our town, we divide our 161 miles of roads into
various zones and routes to more efficiently service the residents.
Garbage pickup follows two (2) routes. The northern end of town and Verplanck
are serviced on Monday’s, whereas the southern end of town is serviced on
Tuesday’s.
All town residents can expect to have their paper recycling picked up on
Wednesday’s and their co-mingle recyclables (glass, plastic and metal) on
Thursday’s. Any time there is a holiday in the regular garbage, paper and
co-mingled week everything is moved back a day to provide regular services
to everyone. (e.g. 4 day week – garbage – garbage – paper – co-mingled).
However, during Holiday Weeks bulk pick up will not occur for that specific
route until the next available month
   –– Please check the holiday scheduling on pages 16 and 17.
   –– Or visit our website: www.townofcortlandt.comOWN OF

                     The container should come with a tight fitting cover
                     of the same material as the container with two (2)

RECYCLING - THE ADVANTAGE
                              It’s The State and Local Law
Recycling preserves the environment by decreasing the volume of waste that
goes into the trash. Recycling saves natural resources. Introducing recycled
materials into the manufacturing reduces consumption of scarce and expensive
natural resources. Also, the increasing emphasis on recycling creates employment
opportunities.
                Recycling will make the difference, START TODAY —
                    Don’t throw away a good thing, RECYCLE!
Begin by learning and practicing the three R’s of Resource Recovery.
REDUCE-REUSE-RECYCLE!
REDUCE the amount of material requiring disposal:
·   Buy products made from recycled and recyclable materials. Look for the
    three recycling arrows.
·   Avoid over-packaged or disposable items.
·   Buy products in bulk or economy sizes, which creates less packaging waste.
·   Use cloth diapers instead of disposable ones.
·   Control junk mail.
REUSE as much as possible:
  >   Purchase products in reusable containers.
  >   Reuse wrapping paper, plastic bags and boxes.
  >   Offer out-grown clothing, unwanted furniture and toys to friends or donate
      them to local charities.
  >   Pass along unwanted magazines and books to hospitals or nursing homes.
  >   Try having household appliances repaired before considering replacement.
RECYCLE as much as possible of what’s left:
  – Newspapers, magazines and corrugated cardboard – through the town’s
     curbside program.
  – Bulk metals through compliance with the Town Bulk Trash Collection
     regulations.
  – The Town of Cortlandt is further divided into (4) separate routes for Bulk
     Trash Pick Up Days.
  – Our brochure lists the roads associated with each route.
                For example:
                Route 1 - Bulk trash pickup is the 1st Friday of every month.
                Route 2 - Bulk trash pickup is the 2nd Friday of every month.
                Route 3 - Bulk trash pickup is the 3rd Friday of every month.
                Route 4 - Bulk trash pickup is the 4th Friday of every month.
                (Remember the four Fridays a month are associated with
                each one of the four routes. Please keep in mind that the
                fourth Friday does not always mean the last Friday. (NO
                Bulk Trash Pick Up during the Holiday Weeks).
To find your route and the corresponding dates, please (see pages 22, 23, 24, 25, 26 &
27) for your street name and proper route schedule. NOTE: If your street is missing
from the list, please call the Sanitation Office at (914) 737-0100.

 If your bulk pick up is required on a day separate from a scheduled Friday, a special pick
 up can be arranged for a fee of $20.00 depending on the volume of your bulk trash. For
 information and arrangement (see page 10) or call the Sanitation Division at (914) 737-0100.

                                             7
         BULK TRASH COLLECTION - I
 Curbside collection of Bulk Trash will be provided by the Cortlandt Sanitation
 Division according to the following guidelines and regulations. It is essential
 that all residents abide by these regulations in order for the Town to be able
 to maintain the bulk trash collection service.

♦    All items to be removed MUST BE placed at curbside no later than 7:00am
     on the Friday of scheduled pick up day.
♦    The Town of Cortlandt Municipal Code prohibits items or materials intended
     for bulk trash pick up from being placed at garbage site more than two (2)
     days prior to the first day scheduled for each section route pick up. Bulk

         phones in the garbage. Violators may be issued a warning or be fined up
         to $250.00. If disposed of in the garbage chemicals (toxic materials
         containing arsenic, nickel, zinc & lead) can leach into soil and
groundwater from landfills or turn into other toxic substances during incineration.
Phones that are reusable will be refurbished and donated with pre-programmed
minutes to domestic violence victims. Those that are not will be recycled. For
information www.westchestergov.com/cellphone or call the Recycling HelpLine

 Kitchen Refuse           Hazardous Materials *          Dirt
 Ceramic Tiles *          Grass Clippings *
* Ceramic Tiles Disposal: (Non-hazardous) - Town does not pick up ceramic
   tiles. Resident or Contractor’s responsibility for disposal.
* Grass clippings are not collected (no exception):
  Leave your clippings on the lawn and you —
   — Will reduce mowing time by 20 – 25%.
   — Won’t need to buy bags.
   — Will recycle nutrients (grass clippings are a valuable organic
        product) saving 25% of your annual fertilizer costs.
 TIPS:
  • Mow when grass is dry and – 4" tall. Never cut shorter than 1-1/2" or 2-1/2".
  • Don’t over-fertilize – May, September and late November are the best months.
  • Limit the use of lawn chemicals. Try switching to disease-resistant seed and
     use corrective measures only when needed.
  • As long as you mow frequently or use a mulching mower, those short clippings
     will disappear quickly and enrich your lawn. Clippings do not contribute to THATCH.

Black Top Sealer Disposal (Non-Hazardous) - Must be air–dried (dry out) and
solidified (hard/firm. etc.) and is disposed of the same way as paint, it can be put
out with garbage or on bulk trash collection day.

RECYCLING PROGRAM
      GLASS AND PLASTIC
   REMEMBER NOT TO PLACE ANY RECYCLABLES
              IN PLASTIC BAGS.
Placing recyclables in plastic bags is a common and costly
mistake. Plastic bags mixed with other recyclables
contaminate the entire load brought to the Material Recovery
Plant. They have to be removed at the taxpayer’s expense (that’s you) before
the other recyclable materials can be processed. If you save your glass, metal
and plastic containers in plastic bags just dump the recyclables out of the
bag and into the bin/container on collection day and either throw the plastic
bags away or reuse them.

               RECYCLING COUNTS!
               RECYCLING
REDUCE: Waste reduction requires a little forethought because the aim is to
bring home less materials that will wind up as trash and to reuse as many items
as possible. Buy bulk-packaged items – Buy reusable or recyclable products –
Don’t buy disposable products when you can avoid them.
REUSE: Reuse items as many times as possible – Give old magazines, books,
etc. to neighbors, hospitals and nursing homes – Give unwanted clothing and
repairable appliances to other or donate them to charity, churches for annual
rummage sales – Get together with neighbors, collect unwanted items and
have a garage sale – Organize or suggest a community-wide garage sale and
promote community spirit and recycling.
RECYCLE: IT’S THE LAW! It’s important to keep recyclables clean and dry. If
you are not sure what those materials are, please contact the Sanitation Division
at (914) 737-0100.
It takes more energy to make a new can or bottle than it does
to recycle one. The energy saved by recycling can be used to
power things with electricity, like a light bulb or TV.
                It takes five plastic bottles to make one recycled fiberfill ski jacket.
                  One pound of recycled newspapers can make
                  six cereal boxes. Two or three average daily
                  newspapers equal one pound.
                  For every aluminum can you recycle, the energy saved can run
                  your TV for three hours!
Due to changes in the Federal Fair Credit Reporting Act, you

    of thumb is to water and turn the pile occasionally
    and to alternate layers of high nitrogen (such as
    grass clippings) and high carbon (such as fallen
    leaves) materials.
>   Depending on the ratios of this mix, the size of the
    bin and weather conditions, the composting
    process can take from 6 months to two years.
>   By composting, you will end with decomposed leaves and lawn clippings
    called “compost”, a natural additive to enhance your lawn and garden.

    Sanitation Division at (914) 737-0100.

The accumulation of mercury in the environmental & food chain is a serious environment and human health
hazard. Effective July 12, 2005, New York state law began regulating the manufacture, sale and
disposal of mercury-added products (fluorescent lamps, HID (High Intensity Discharge) lamps,
mercury thermometers & thermostats & car mercury switches). Disposal of mercury-added
consumer waste products must be managed separately from other solid waste. For information
on the law, contact the NYS DEC Hazardous Regulation Bureau at (518) 402-8633 or visit
www.westchestergov.com/envfacil.RESIDENTS ONLYcan deliver mercury-added products to household haz-
ardous waste collection (see page 15 for schedule).Businesses will not be allowed in the normal trash and must
be managed separately by an authorized solid waste, recycling or hazardous waste facility.
Schools throughout New York are required to recycle all spent fluorescent light bulbs. Effective
as of September 4, 2004, the purchase and use of elemental mercury by primary and second-
ary schools is prohibited. For information visit the New York State Dept. of Environmental
Conservation web site at: http://www.dec.state.ny.us/website/dshm/redrecy/c145home.html

              WESTCHESTER COUNTY - IMPORTANT NOTICE
The occurrence of medical sharps–needles and syringes–is on a rise again
at the Material Recovery Facility (MRF). On October 28th a hand picker on the
sorting line for glass, plastics and metals was pricked by a medical needle.
There are about 25 hand pickers at the MRF. Unfortunately, and all-too-often,
a container filled with medical sharps works its way onto the hand picking
assembly line undetected. Be it that sharps were stored in a fragile glass jar
or a thick durable plastic bottle, with the journey it took to reach that point-
from the curb, to a garbage truck, from the truck onto a tipping floor and then
pushed by bulldozer onto an assembly belt—container breaks leaving used
needles and syringes exposed and put hand pickers at high risk.

 SHARPS (needles, syringes, lancets, other sharp health care products) and
 the containers used to hold them – should never be recycled. They may be
 contaminated, posing a danger to recycling workers. They can cause major
 problems in the recycling process. Medical Waste and disposal containers
 should always be separated from recyclable items.

 The safest way to discard sharps is to take them to a hospital or facility
 that accepts them. For someone unable to take the sharps to a facility,
 there is another option. For information and a “Sharps Smarts” brochure
 on safe storage and disposal, call the Sanitation Division at (914) 737-
 0100, or the Westchester County Department of Health at (914) 813-5000

                      DISPOSAL OF UNUSED AND OUTDATED HOUSEHOLD
                      MEDICINE:
                      If you need to dispose of medicine, including over the counter
                      products, place it in your household garbage to be picked
                      up by the Sanitation Department on Monday or Tuesday. In
                      the Town of Cortlandt this refuse goes to the burn plant and
                      keeps these medications out of the water supply.



             RADIOLOGICAL MEDICATION RESIDUALS SHOULD
                 NOT BE DISPOSED OF IN THE GARBAGE

 If you or your pets are receiving medical treatment involving radioactive
 materials, all residuals or personal items that would collect body fluids should
 be returned to the hospital or health care facility where you or your pet received
 the treatment, for proper disposal. Your doctor will advise you how long after
 treatment you will need to continue taking these precautions.

 These items include: diapers; excreta; kitty litter; sanitary napkins; tampons;
 tissues or any other product that would be used to absorb body fluids.
 Please: DO NOT simply put your soiled products into your household trash.

 If you have questions, please call the Westchester County Health Department
 at (914) 813-5000.


What is West Nile Encephalitis and who is at risk of contacting it?
West Nile Encephalitis is an illness transmitted through the bite of an infected
mosquito. This viral infection of the brain and can cause serious illness or even
death. West Nile Virus is not transmitted from person to person or from birds to
people. The virus can infect anyone, but the elderly, the very young and those
with weakened immune systems are at greater risk for developing this serious
disease.

     The best way to prevent the spread of the West Nile Virus is to protect
             yourself and family members from mosquito bites by:
 –     Personal Protective Measures.
 –     Reduce Mosquito Breeding Grounds by eliminating areas of standing water.
 –     For more information on Operation Mosquito S.T.I.N.G., the county plan for
       mosquito surveillance and control, contact the Westchester County Dept.
       of Health at (914) 637-4700 or website: www.westchestergov.com or the
       Department of Environmental Services at (914) 737-0100.

                     HOUSEHOLD BATTERY RECYCLING;
                     FYI – In 1992, an International standard was implemented
                     requiring manufacturers to produce the commonly used
                     non-rechargeable alkaline and carbon zinc batteries with a
                     significantly lower mercury content. Now, according to the
                     NYS Dept. of Environmental Conservation, most household
                     batteries can be disposed of safely in the trash.
Throw away in garbage:
– Type: Non-Rechargeable Alkaline and Carbon Zinc, Rechargeable Alkaline
– Examples: AAA, AA, C, D, 9 Volt, Long Life C and D Cells, etc. Used for
  toys, radios, appliances, flashlights, etc..
– Take to a drop-off site or County Household Chemical Clean-Up Day:
– Type: Rechargeable – Sealed Lead Acid, Nickel Hydride, Lithium, Nickel
  Cadmium.*
– Examples: AAA, AA, C, D, 9 Volt Battery Packs. Used for power tools, cellular
  phones, video cameras, portable computers, etc..
– Type: Button Cell – Silver Oxide, Mercuric Oxide, Lithium, Zinc Air
– Examples: Round in shape, very small and thin in size. Used for hearing
  aids, watches, cameras, etc.
– If the battery cannot be removed, the entire product may be brought to a local
  drop-off site or County Household Chemical Clean-Up Day (see page 15 for
  schedule).
* Most Radio Shack stores will accept (free of charge and no purchase
  necessary) nickel cadmium batteries for proper disposal. Call Radio Shack
  for more information.

         HOUSEHOLD PAINT – PREPARATION IS IMPORTANT:
Think of the potential mess a can of liquid paint can cause to the road, a car
or truck, or sanitation crew, if it spills or splatters. Both oil-based and water-
based or latex paint may be legally and safely disposed of in your garbage by
following these simple instructions below:
> Harden paint by mixing it with kitty litter or another
    absorbent pellet material (such as Speedy-Dri) until
    no liquid remains. The more absorbent material is
    added, the faster the paint will harden.
> Water based paint will dri-out in the open air with
    the lid off.
> To make more room for the absorbent material, full
    or partially full cans of paint should be poured off
    into empty cans or ones with less paint. Some paint stores may carry products
    specifically designed to harden waste paint (ask stores for details).
> After paint is hard, put it out for bulk trash or garbage collection with lid
    off.

 Hazardous Materials: Hazardous Waste is flammable, corrosive, toxic or
 reactive. When improperly discarded down the drain or into a ditch, the
 chemicals contaminate the water supplies. When tossed into the garbage,
 the waste may injure sanitation workers, react on the truck or pollute the air
 when incinerated for disposal. See 2007 “Westchester County Household
 Chemical Clean-up Program Guidelines” on (page 15) or call the Westchester
 County Hotline at (914) 813-5425.

What do you do with excess dry cleaning wire hangers
that have steadily grown in your closet?
 •   Wire hangers do not burn at our garbage-to-energy plant.
 •   They are fully recyclable.
 •   Residents can help to conserve on energy and protect
     the environment by taking your hangers to the cleaners.

 Last year Westchester County had initiated the “Green Team” program to
 elevate dry cleaners’ and residents’ awareness of waste reduction and the
 reuse potential of clothes hangers. It is estimated that hundreds of tons of
 wire clothes hangers are utilized in Westchester County each year. Green
 team dry cleaning members strip-off the paper and plastic from the used
 hangers, put on new paper and reuse hangers.
       Residents can check the Dry Cleaners Green team list and for a cleaner
 in your area by calling the “Recycling Hot Line” at (914) 813-5420 or website:
 www.westchestergov.com under “Environment,” and then onto “Dry
 Cleaners Green Team”.
TREASURE HUNT is an information “swap shop” where county residents and
businesses wishing to dispose of usable items are matched with those in need
of used goods.
When donors participate, their items and phone numbers are listed in the
Treasure Hunt data bank and made available to persons seeking those items.
No cash changes hands and it is the responsibility of the recipient to pick up the
donated goods. Treasure Hunt can be accessed by calling (914) 813-5415 or
website: www.westchestergov.com/envfacil/Treasure%20Hunt.htm or
Cortlandt/Sanitation Division at (914) 737-0100.
Motor Oil:
Take used motor oil to a service station or to a retail outlet that sells motor oil.
              State law requires most service stations and retailers to accept, free
              of charge, up to five (5) gallons of motor oil per person per day.
              Drain oil into a clean unbreakable plastic container with a tight-
              fitting lid. Do not mix oil with any other fluid, such as antifreeze,
              brake fluid or gasoline. Be certain that the container you use is
              thoroughly rinsed so that nothing will contaminate the motor oil.
Oil Filters:
Drain oil from filter. This should be done in an area where the temperature is
higher than 600 F. Oil drains more easily and thoroughly at warmer temperatures.
Drained filters should then be wrapped in newspapers and disposed of in the
garbage.

                Vehicle Batteries:
                Take vehicle batteries to a retailer that sells them. State law
                requires such retailers to accept, free of charge, up to (2)
                vehicle batteries per person per month.

  IT’S THE LAW: If a service station or retailer refuses to accept your
  motor oil or vehicle battery, you have the right to report the facility to
  the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation Division
  at (845) 256-3013.

                              PROVIDING ROAD MAINTENANCE AND REPAIR
                                      SERVICES ON TOWN ROADS.

           THESE SERVICES INCLUDE THE FOLLOWING:
•   Snow plowing and sanding/salting           •   Traffic light repair and maintenance
•   Sidewalk maintenance                       •   Brush pick up (listed below)

     At the Department of Environmental Services, we are always looking
     to move ahead and do our best to provide services to our residents.
         Please call or E-mail us with your concerns and suggestions.

—      Telephone answering system-lets you leave messages after our regular
       work hours (3:30pm - 8:00am).
—      E-mail address-computer users can contact us directly at:
       (www.townofcortlandt.com) to report potholes, street light outages, brush
       pick ups, etc.
—      We are using more salt and less sand for snow operations which leads
       to less clean up in streets and catch basins.
—      Reducing the use of sand as a treatment material should be a primary goal
       of environmentally responsible road maintenance because sand usage is
       responsible for the phosphorus introduced into the reservoirs. The use of
       sand also degrades aquatic habitat in streams, wetlands and rivers.
