Big trash collection and large metal pickup scheduled for Brocton

BROCTON - A rough winter and optimal spring weather conditions have made for a busy start to brush clean up in the village of Brocton.

Streets Supervisor Tom Allen and his crew members were commended during the Brecent Brocton Board of Trustees meeting for getting a quick jump on picking up debris that residents had ready curbside this month.

"I'd like to publicly thank Tom and his crew for doing such a great job cleaning up. People have expressed that they're really happy with that," noted Trustee J. Dale Abram.

Crews in the village collect brush on the first Monday of each month through November. Allen reminds residents that brush should not be sitting out any longer than the weekend prior to pick up and that it should be stacked as neatly as possible by the property's curbside to expedite pick up. Grass clippings and leaves should be bagged, and pick up will only be for yard debris, not any other miscellaneous items. For residents that have yard debris to dispose of in between pick up dates, Allen notes the DPW shop maintains a debris pile on Highland Avenue. Residents can transport yard debris to that site and unload it themselves at any time in between brush pick up dates.

Village Clerk Sonia Luszcak reminded residents to refer to the yellow mailer that recently went out to village addresses for brush pickup dates; hydrant flushing dates and times; large trash and metal pickup details; as well as new information from the village zoning and code enforcement office.

Big Metal Pick Up for Brocton will be June 8, at which time washers, dryers, hot water tanks, stoves, metal cabinets, lawn mowers and other metal items will be discarded and picked up at the curbside.

Trustee Bryan Woleben commended a young village resident that he witnessed at Ryckman Park in the village picking up sticks and placing them at the curbside. Allen commended the child too, noting that six or seven piles of sticks and debris were picked up and waiting at the curb.

In other matters, the board tabled the acceptance of a quote for a new sign for the Brocton Fire Department until they are able to get detailed information from the department on how the sign should read and what colors are to be used.
