Mayor Madden: 8-Week Citywide Spring Cleanup Schedule Begins Monday, April 10
(UPDATED MAY 15, 2017)

TROY, NYMayor Patrick Madden today announced the release of the annual spring street cleaning schedule for the City of Troy. The Department of Public Works (DPW) has scheduled eight weeks of street sweeping and debris cleanup beginning on Monday, April 10, and running through Friday, June 2. The initiative will allow the city to remove dirt, brush, leaves and other items that have accumulated over the winter months.

“The city’s street cleaning program is an important public service the City of Troy provides to assist our residents and business owners in improving the appearance of their neighborhoods and clear city roadways of dirt and debris built up during the winter season,” said Mayor Patrick Madden. “With the cooperation of the public, our Department of Public Works crews can coordinate an effective cleanup program that benefits the entire Troy community and enhances the overall quality of life in our neighborhoods.”

For the Spring Cleaning program to be conducted thoroughly and efficiently Troy residents are being asked to help spread the word throughout their neighborhoods and cooperate with the following guidelines and suggestions:
• Know when your streets will be cleaned. A schedule has been published and will be available on the website at www.troyny.gov. The schedule will also will be shared through the City’s social media sites and available in City Hall.
• Please move your vehicles in accordance with regularly posted alternate-side parking restrictions so that DPW staff can access the entire street area.
• Sweep or wash your sidewalks and rake your lawns BEFORE sweepers come onto your streets. Additionally, please sweep the dirt along the curbs and out of the gutters into small piles to help make pick up easier.
• Bulk trash will not be collected at this time. Bulk trash pickup for residents is available by contacting DPW directly at (518) 270-4579. Please note that bulk trash may be subject to additional charges.
• During posted cleanup days, any uncooperative vehicle owners will have their vehicles towed at the owner’s expense. All streets that will be part of that day’s cleanup will be posted for “No Parking”. Please notify DPW at (518) 270-4579 in advance if you know of any abandoned, unregistered or inoperative vehicles in your neighborhood.
• This is a great time to clean your alley, back yards and cut down any weeds or brush. Please place the material in a biodegradable bag or bundle the brush and branches together for easier collection.
• Regular trash pickup will occur as scheduled for your neighborhood.

The street cleaning program is not trash pickup. However, beginning Saturday, April 22, the Alamo, located on Main Street next to the Rensselaer County Jail, will be open on the 3rd Saturday of each month until December from 7:30 am until noon for city residents with identification. At the Alamo, residents may dispose of yard waste, tires (cost of $3 per tire) and bulk trash (furniture, carpets, etc.). No regular garbage, recycling or hazardous waste will be accepted.

Please contact the City of Troy’s Department of Public Works at (518) 270-4579 with any additional questions regarding this year’s Spring Cleanup program and schedule.
