Town residents are responsible to contract their own weekly garbage collection. There are two companies that have licenses to pick up garbage in the Town of Hamburg:
The Town of Hamburg Highway Department offers a number of services to help residents dispose of their brush and rubbish in a timely and environmentally conscious manner. The department normally has two crews move through the town from March through November, weather permitting, collecting residential brush. These crews also pick up bagged leaves during the fall. In addition, town crews conduct a special tree Christmas tree pickup in January.
The town has a contract with Waste Management to conduct a rubbish pickup once a month between April and October. These pickups give residents the opportunity to dispose of up to 100 pounds of rubbish or one large item.
Specific questions about pickups in your area can be answered by the Department's office staff.
Please note: These Brush and Rubbish Pickups are not available to residents of the Villages of Hamburg and Blasdell.
