Yard Waste Pickup Information

The Town of Binghamton DOES NOT pick up yard waste, but the garbage haulers we use will pick up yard waste for a price. The following information concerns each garbage hauler in the Town, and its specific policy:


Bert Adams - 648-4863 - You must buy stickers to put on your own bags. The stickers cost $5.40 for a sheet of five. Place your yard waste in a 32 gallon lawn & leaf bag and set it to the curb on your garbage day. (This is in addition to your contracted price.)

Joe's Disposal - 1-800-836-2149 - Joe's charges $3 per bag.  Place your yard waste in your own 32 gallon lawn & leaf bag, then call to schedule a pickup. (They will pick up only a maximum of four bags at a time, and the cost is in addition to your contracted price.)

In addition, at a charge of $10 per item, Joe's will pick up mattresses, box springs, chairs, couches, and appliances. Please call to arrange for pickup BEFORE setting these items to the curb. They WILL also pick up items containing freon FOR AN EXTRA CHARGE, but again, call ahead.

Taylor Garbage - 797-5277 - You must sign up for pickup so please call them beforehand. You can sign up by the month or by the season. Customers will be placed on a route list so no stickers are required; however material must be out in a hard sided plastic container or garbage can. The weight of the container can be no heavier than 30 lbs. Yard waste will not be picked up in bags or cardboard boxes.
