LEAF PICKUP
Our annual leaf pickup program is underway from October 1st and will run until December 1st.  Residents are asked to place leaves curbside in wind rows for collection.  Please do not place brush curbside or co-mingle with your leaves.  Brush can damage our equipment and we recycle this organic material.

Brush Pick Up is provided from April 1st and continues through June 1st.
Brush will not be picked up during the summer months-so please plan accordingly! 


Clippings are never eligible for curbside pick up. During storms these materials find their way to catch basins and may cause backups in our system.  Please place brush curbside and do not mix in leaves or grass clippings.  Compost yard waste or bring it to the Town of Washington Transfer Station for disposal.  Transfer Station Passes:$45/year for Senior Citizens, $75/year,  $35 for one day pass.  Tickets may be purchased at the Town of Washington Hall located at 10 Reservoir Drive.  For further information contact the Town Clerk at (845) 677-3419.  This service is not meant for land clearing, but is offered to our residents to assist with yard upkeep.  We reserve the right to remove inappropriately prepared brush and debris and will assess a special removal fee to the property owner. 


FISHING LICENSES
With trout and salmon fishing season starting April 1st NYS has made it easier to enjoy great outdoor fishing.  Fishing license may be obtained at the Town of Washington Hall in the Clerk's Office located at 10 Reservoir Drive, Millbrook, NY 12545.  Hours: M-F, 9am to Noon & 1pm to 3pm.  You can also purchase and print a fishing license from home by visiting licensecenter.ny.gov.  They also have reduced fishing fees, improved access for fishint at various sites across the state, and expanded fishing clinics as part of the state's NY Open for Fishing and Hunting initiative.  Anglers consider investing in alifetime fishing license that can be converted to an Adventure License and be eligible to receive a free adventure license plate for your vehicle in 1 of 9 disigns.

FLUSHING FIRE HYDRANTS
Millbrook will be Flushing Fire Hydrants throughout the Village Mid May. Flushing is essential for pipe maintenance.  However, it is common to experience turbidity (cloudy water) following the procedure.  Run your faucets for a few moments to clear silt from your lines and check your washing machine and shower before using.  Any questions please call the system operators VRI Environmental Services, Inc at 845-677-3839.  The Village website calendar and marquee will have specific dates posted when available (www.villageofmillbrookny.com). 

  CLEAN UP AFTER DOGS!
Pet owners must clean up after their dogs!

Animal waste is a health hazard and unwelcome upon our sidewalks.  In an effort to assist residents, the Village has installed two dog waster stations; one at the Thorne Building and one on Merritt Avenue across from the Village Hall.  Stations are also located in the park.  We hope you take full advantage of these facilities.


PROJECT UPDATES:
Our studies have determined that the most common and easily corrected source of clean water (I & I) making its way to our sanitary system is homeowner's use of sump pumps. Pumping basements to the wastewater treatment plant puts an undue stress on our operation. This practice is prohibited under our code. Village officials will be conducting inspections so please remove any sumps from the sanitary system.
