(Hamilton , NY– June 2, 2012) The Hamilton Town Council announces its first town-wide cleanup day for town of Hamilton residents June 2. Hamilton residents are invited to do some spring cleaning and bring up to two clear garbage bags of roadside, yard or other trash at no charge to the town highway barn between 7:15 a.m. and 2 p.m.

Up to two pieces of used furniture may also be disposed of free. As usual, scrap metal is accepted free of charge. The transfer station will also accept for a fee: tires (four per family) – $2.70, propane tanks – $2.70, air conditioners – $13.50, refrigerators – $13.50, freezers – $13.50, de-humidifiers – $13.50, televisions – $2.70 and computer monitors – $2.70.

Support for the program is provided by the Madison County Department of Solid Waste and Recycling, which is supplying designated Dumpsters for all waste items.

In promotion of a countywide pilot agricultural plastic recycling program, the transfer station will accept used plastic pots, containers, drip tape and trays. Farmers and gardeners are asked to bring in their plastic mulch and other thin films, packaged in easy-to-handle bundles. The Madison County Solid Waste and Recycling Committee is encouraging farmers to participate in the ag plastic recycling program aimed at turning plastic into low-sulphur fuel.
