Department of Public Works

Zack Bleier, Working Foreman of the Department of Public Works (DPW), supervises a five person crew and manages the maintenance and repair of the Village’s infrastructure. Some of the DPW’s daily responsibilities include collecting brush and yard debris, monitoring the Village’s storm water and sanitary sewer systems, maintaining public grounds and sidewalks, pruning village trees, and plowing and sweeping streets and sidewalks.

PLEASE NOTE NEW CHANGES EFFECTIVE 11/2007: We are eliminating the use of bags for yard debris. Scheduled collection of brush and containers ends the last Monday in October. After that date, we will pick up debris when time is available. This gives us all of our time to pick up leaves and to do snow removal if need be.

Thank you for your cooperation in advance.

Please Help Our Busy DPW Crew By Following These Mandates.

  • Place weeds, flower clippings, fruits, nuts, and other small debris in re-usable rubbish containers. When full, these containers should not weigh more than 50 pounds.
  • Please keep all brush, leaves, and other debris in separated piles for the safety of our employees and Village equipment.
  • During the Fall months, leaves may be piled by the curb. Leaf pick-up will continue as long as weather permits.
  • Annual brush pick up is on Monday starting April 1. Brush will continued to be picked up, weather permitting, between November 1 and March 31. Branches and other yard debris should not exceed 6 feet in length.
  • All contractor generated debris, with the exception of leaves, should be hauled to the Town of Pittsford on Golf Avenue.
  • Items such as water tanks, stoves, furniture, building materials, sod, rocks, bricks, concrete, etc. can not be picked up by the Village Highway Department. Your private waste hauler can help you dispose of these items.
  • Following Village vehicles closely is dangerous. We ask that you remain at least 500 feet away from working equipment and be mindful of crew members in the work zone.

Winter Plowing!

Just a little reminder from the Superintendent to be mindful of restricted overnight parking from November 1 to April 15. See the Village Code for further explanation.

 

Please keep garbage totes and recycling bins out of the roadway or on the sidewalk during the winter. These items are not always visible from the cab of the snow equipment.
