Village Constable Howard Gifford would like to remind residents of the Village of Ellicottville about brush and leaf collection laws.
In accordance with Local Law # 3 of 1982, amended by Local Law # 4 of 2011, in regard to brush and leaf collection: Brush and leaves will be collected at curbside from April 1–November 30 on the first Monday of each month.
Brush is defined by law as branches and trunk material from trees and shrubs grown on the premises, but the branches and trunk material must NOT be longer than four feet, or wider in diameter than six inches. The village WILL NOT collect cut grass, and cut grass shall NOT be placed at curbside for collection. Brush and leaves to be collected shall be placed at curbside by 7 a.m. on the day designated, but not more than 48 hours prior to such time. Brush and leaves from the premises are the ONLY vegetation which shall be so placed for collection.
Additionally, the next major trash collection will be Monday, April 29. Please remember that electronics equipment, refrigerators, freezers, microwaves and air conditioners WILL NOT be picked up.
