2013 FALL LEAF COLLECTION INFORMATION read more ...
Program Starts October 21st – ends December 6th
LEAVES ARE COLLECTED APPROXIMATELY EVERY TWENTY (20) BUSINESS DAYS
Depending on weather conditions, at least one collection is planned each month for each street. Two (2) leaf vacuum trucks operate in each of the Village’s seven (7) leaf collection sections.
LEAF COLLECTION SCHEDULE
The leaf collection schedule is displayed and updated on a weekly basis on Scarsdale’s Government Access Channel 75 and Verizon Channel 43, as well as the Village’s Internet website at www.scarsdale.com.
PLACING LEAVES FOR COLLECTION
Residents may rake leaves (no branches, grass, dirt, stones, etc. mixed with leaves placed curbside) to the curb line or to the edge of pavement for collection. Leaves may also be placed into biodegradable paper bags and placed at the curb for weekly collections by Village crews. In accordance with the Village Code, leaves may not be raked into the street, as this creates traffic hazards for both motorists and pedestrians and can clog catch basins impeding the proper function of the storm drainage system.
Please note, leaves placed in non-biodegradable plastic bags are not accepted by the Village’s hauling contractor and therefore will not be collected by Village crews. Also, branches placed at curbside must be separated from leaf piles and tied in bundles less than five (5) feet long and eighteen (18) inches in diameter, weighting no more than 50 pounds. Residents should contact a private carter for pickup of individual branches larger than three (3) inches in diameter.
VILLAGE LEAF TRANSFER STATION
Residents can bring leaves from 8AM to 3 PM, Monday through Saturday, in loose or biodegradable paper bags to the Recycling Yard Center, 110 Secor Road free of charge. Contractors also may bring leaves free of charge to the Recycling Center once they obtain a free permit from the Department of Public Works. Please contact Eric Gerringer at (914) 722-1150 for more information.
HOW TO OBTAIN LEAF BAGS
Biodegradable paper bags are available for purchase with a check, money order or cash in lots of five (5) at a cost of $4.00, on weekdays from 9 AM to 5 PM, in the Coordinating Office located on the 2nd floor of Village Hall. Bags may also be purchased at the Recycling Center, 110 Secor Road from 8AM to 3PM including Saturdays. Only check or money order will be accepted at the Recycling Center. Please note that there are no restrictions to the number of bags purchased by residents. Landscapers are not permitted to purchase the biodegradable paper bags.

New York State’s Small Business Storm Recovery Program
New York State has announced that the first storm-impacted businesses have been approved for grants through New York State’s Small Business Storm Recovery Program and that they are ready to assist with a streamlined application process so you may quickly receive the grants for which they may be eligible.
Through this program, businesses are eligible for grants of $50,000 or more to help replace physical items such as machinery, moveable equipment, inventory, furniture and fixtures, as well as help with the day to day expenses entrepreneurs need to run their businesses. Further, the Program is able to provide grants to reimburse businesses that already purchased these physical items to get their business back up and running. In both cases, the grants would cover “uncompensated costs” above and beyond those covered by insurance proceeds, grant programs and other government resources.
As a first step, businesses should contact their local Small Business Development Center (SBDC) office, where an SBDC business advisor will provide free assistance with completing the application process. For a list of SBDC locations in your community, please refer to http://www.nysandyhelp.ny.gov/sites/default/files/documents/businesscenterlocations.pdf.
New York State representatives are already reaching out to business owners in your community to encourage them to apply for grants and low-interest loans available through this program. To build on these initial outreach efforts, please forward to your constituents as soon as possible a summary of the available grant and loan programs (see http://www.nysandyhelp.ny.gov/sites/default/files/documents/smallbusiness-factsheet_rev_4-25-13.pdf), as well as the list of SBDC locations.
Please keep in mind that funds will also be available in the near future for real property repair and rehabilitation; and that application and receipt of funds for any of the above items does not exclude businesses from applying for repair or rehabilitation funding in the future. read more ...
