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:

PLEASE NOTE THAT ALL GARBAGE HAULERS REQUIRE CONTRACTED SERVICE IN ORDER TO PROVIDE THE ADDITIONAL YARD WASTE PICKUP.

Bert Adams - 648-4863 - You must buy stickers to put on your own bags. The stickers cost $2 each or $10.80 for a sheet of five (tax included). Place your yard waste in a 32 gallon lawn & leaf bag (no more than 25 lbs.) 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 buy stickers to put on your own garbage cans (no bags).  The stickers cost $16.20 for a sheet of five (tax included).  Place your yard waste loose (no bags) in your large garbage containers then call to schedule a pickup. (This is in addition to your contracted price.)

Broome County Landfill Option - 763-4450

If you don't contract with a local hauler, your other option is to take your yard waste to the Broome County landfill.  It can be in plastic bags or placed loose, under cover in the back of your truck.  (If you have chosen to place the debris in plastic bags, you'll need to empty the bags at the landfill then take the bags with you when you're done.)  Simply pull onto the scales, tell the attendant that you have yard waste, and he/she will direct you to where it needs to be disposed.  Then, pull onto the scales again before leaving, and pay the attendant.
