Designated Hamlet Fall Leaf Pickup Areas

Due to the impact of Hurricane Sandy, Bedford’s Department of Public Works (DPW) will pick up storm debris (logs and brush) from residents.

The Town of Bedford Beaver Dam Compost Facility is also open for residents in non-commercial vehicles to dispose of recyclable wood waste (logs and branches up to 6” diameter, brush, and leaves). The facility is open Monday to Friday from 7:30 to 3:00, excluding town holidays.

The Town is entering leaf pickup season from designated hamlet areas and snow will not be far behind, so please minimize the quantity you leave out for pick up since it may end up covered with snow and in place for an extended period.

As we will be picking up storm debris, the usual amount of leaf removal pickups will be reduced. The leaf removal schedule will not be published and leaf collection will be combined with storm debris collection. As with previous years, leaf collection is only in designated hamlet areas and is posted on the DPW page on Town's website (bedfordny.gov). Leaves and storm debris must be piled separately.

All storm debris must be out at the edge of the property by November 19th and placed so that it does not interfere with traffic. Logs over 10” in diameter shall not be greater than 3’ in length. The Town will collect ONLY up to two cubic yards of material per household from the recent storm. Any material beyond two cubic yards will be left behind and must be removed by the property owner.

Debris pickup will occur once per road. It will likely take at least six months to complete this task. Once the DPW comes through each street, we will not come back for storm debris.

The Town encourages all Bedford residents to consider managing their own organic waste onsite. Composting and leaf mulching are relatively simple ways to cope with organic materials and there is the added advantage of saving the Town of Bedford significant funds if residents limit the amount of organic waste put out on the curb for our DPW to pick up.

5/3/12 - The Town of Bedford is pleased to announce the Beaver Dam Compost Facility is now open for residents to dispose of recyclable wood waste (logs and branches up to 6” diameter, brush, and leaves), as well as pick up wood mulch and leaf compost. This new service is free to Town of Bedford residents between 7:30 and 3:00, Monday through Friday, excluding Town holidays.

The facility is located on Beaver Dam Road north of Harris Road, adjacent to the Bedford Dog Park. The facility is operated by Westwood Organic Recycling. Residents of the town showing proof of residency will have the ability to dispose of their natural wood waste at the facility. Drop off and material pick up is available at three bins immediately inside the gated area of the facility on the right side. Residents will be able to pick up materials in non-commercial vehicles for their own personal use, and are responsible for loading and handling materials themselves. No trucks larger than pick up trucks will be permitted. There is no charge for these materials.

In order for this service to be successful and continue, it is essential that no material other than recyclable wood waste (logs and branches up to 6” diameter, brush, and leaves) be dumped at the facility. The material is processed into mulch and compost at the facility. The facility cannot accept stumps, pressure treated wood, fences, or any other waste. Any bags must be brown paper compostable leaf bags. Because unforeseen items may be found in leaf bags, residents will be required to open leaf bags upon request by a Westwood Organic employee.

Westwood also provides delivery of mulch, compost and topsoil at discounted rates to Town residents, and can be reached at 914-949-3244.

Please contact the Bedford Department of Public Works at 666-7669 if you have questions.
