Solid Waste & Recycling

Trash Collection

The trash collection in the Village of Voorheesville is currently contracted out to Robert Wright Disposal at 518-439-3376. Our contract allows for collection of normal household trash in a 95-gallon container provided by the contractor. Garbage pickup is every Wednesday. Please have your brown trash can out at the street by 6 a.m.  For replacement bins please call Village Hall at 765-2692 or you can use the "Report a Concern" form.

Robert Wright observes the following Holidays:

  • New Years Day
  • Memorial Day
  • 4th of July
  • Labor Day
  • Thanksgiving
  • Christmas Day

 However, Village service will be as regularly scheduled on Wednesdays.

Recycling - PAPER must be recycled curbside

Please refer to the Robert Wright website for current recycling information.


Brush will be picked up as time allows and as posted on Village Community Board, usually April through early September. The Village does not clean up after a contractor. If you hire a contractor, you must hire them to remove debris.

Branches should be placed at the curb with the cut end of the wood facing out. The pieces can be long, but not more than 10 inches in diameter. Wood that contains nails or staples should be placed separately so we do not put it through the wood chipper.

Lawn Debris

In the spring, other lawn debris must be in brown bags. In the fall, leaves will be vacuumed when left at the curb.

All Other Waste

All other items should be disposed of properly. The Town of New Scotland Transfer Station is open on Saturdays throughout the year and on Wednesdays from May through September. For more information, please call 518-475-0385
