No. One of the most important responsibilities and challenging tasks facing the Department of Public Works during the Winter Season is keeping the Village roadways and sidewalks safe and accessible during and after a winter storm. This is done in two phases. Phase one is the plowing and salting of all Village roads and sidewalks. Phase two is snow removal. We realize it is frustrating to be “plowed in” by a Village snowplow after clearing your driveway or walkway. This cannot be helped, it is the DPW’s responsibility to clear all Village roadways and keep them accessible especially for our Emergency Services, Police, Fire and Ambulance. When clearing your driveway or walkway after you have been “plowed in” pile the snow on your own property. Do not throw it back into the road as it reacts with the salt, melts, then freezes up and creates a dangerous icing condition. As for snow removal, please be patient. DPW must first remove snow from Broadway, Main Street and all major roads; we then concentrate on the side streets and outlying areas. Your cooperation during storms will be appreciated.

Non-rechargeable household batteries: place in household garbage. Rechargeable batteries: Retailers that sell rechargeable batteries are required by law to accept from consumers and recycle these batteries. Many stores including Home Depot, Radio Shack, Staples, Best Buy and Lowe’s stores have recycling kiosks at their locations. This includes rechargeable nickel-cadmium, sealed lead, lithium ion, nickel metal hydride, any other such dry cell battery capable of being recharged and battery packs containing any of the aforementioned batteries. You should also recycle non-rechargeable button cell batteries at retail locations. They are small, thin and round, and often used in hearing aids, watches and cameras. Examples are silver oxide, mercuric oxide, lithium, and zinc-air batteries. Non-rechargeable lithium batteries are often used in computers and cameras. Vehicle Batteries: Take to a local scrap metal dealer or any vehicle battery retailer or to a gas station.

Yes, if you place it in a suitable container (plastic bag or cardboard box), place it curbside and call 591-6044 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The Public Works Department is prohibited by law to work on private property. If it is a large animal, such as a deer, you might need to call a landscape contractor.
