May 12, 2021

TROY, NY – Public Works officials today announced that the weekly street cleaning schedule will resume effective Friday, May 14th. Residents and motorists are reminded to observe all regularly-posted park restrictions near their home or business. Illegally-parked vehicles will be ticketed and towed at the owner’s expense.

For more information, contact the Department of Public Works at (518) 270-4579.

Leaf Bag Pickup

Leaf bag collection has resumed. Leaves must be placed in paper lawn bags for collection. Residents can place bagged leaves curbside for pickup during their normal garbage & recycling collection day.

Leaves, yard waste, and brush in plastic bags, or bags that are contaminated with non-organic materials (metals, plastics, and cardboard/paper) will not be collected.

Bulk Collection

Residential bulk collection has resumed. Troy residents can request items such as furniture, appliances, carpets, mattresses, etc. be picked up by scheduling an appointment with the Department of Public Works (DPW). There is a $25.00 haul charge for all scheduled bulk collections up to 2 cubic yards. Non-owner-occupied properties will be charged an additional fee based upon specific bulk waste items.

To schedule a bulk pickup, residents must contact the DPW dispatcher at (518) 270-4579. Residents should not place bulk items curbside prior to contacting DPW. Doing so will violate City Code and you may be assessed a fine.

Material Disposal Programs

Additional City-run programs are available to assist Troy residents with spring cleanup plans, including:

  • Household Hazardous Waste Disposal [LINK]

These programs are available free to Troy residents only. Registration is required to participate, and are first-come, first served.
