Common Garbage & Recycling Mistakes

  • Overweight – Garbage Can & contents shall not weigh over 40 lbs (recyclables 20 lbs). Helpful tip: place used cat litter in separate plastic bag outside of garbage container to avoid having garbage containers be overweight.
  • Wrong size containers – Containers shall have a capacity of no less than 10 gallons & no more than 32 gallons.
  • Materials that are potentially damaging to garbage truck – Construction debris & oversized/awkward materials can not be accepted.
  • Plastic Bags Placed in Recycling Bin – Although some grocery bags have the recycling triangle on them, they cannot be recycled through the local recycling program. Bags can be brought to most local grocery stores for recycling/reuse.
  • Food Contents Still in Recyclable Containers – i.e. – remove leftover pizza from box; rinse out food containers

Lawn Care Tips:

  • Lawn clippings should always be left on the lawn and never raked up so that the soil receives all the necessary nutrients it requires.
  • Use of fertilizer can be eliminated by benefiting from the natural nitrogen produced from recycling grass clippings back into the lawn.
  • Best benefit of all: Saving your time and energy for fun things!

Battery Disposal- Under the “NYS Rechargeable Battery Law” it is illegal to toss rechargeable batteries in the trash in NYS. They contain toxic metals that can be released into the environment.  Rechargeable batteries contained in electronic products must be removed prior to disposal.  Batteries covered by this law include batteries for lap tops, cameras, cell phones, and rechargeable alkaline batteries.  Sherrill residents may bring rechargeable batteries to City Hall for disposal.  Household alkaline batteries should be placed in your trash for disposal. Previously, alkaline battery disposal posed environmental threat because of mercury content. Since mercury has been phased out of battery production, single-use alkaline battery disposal has become safer and such items should be placed with your trash.  Please visit for more information.
