The garbage truck leaves the shed at 7am on scheduled pick up days.
Memorial Day - Columbus Day
The garbage truck will be stationed at the town shed every Sunday from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m. from Memorial Day to Labor Day.
Monday Holidays & Inclement Weather
Garbage days that fall on a Monday holiday, or on an extreme weather Monday,
will be moved to the Tuesday of that week.
Due to the dwindling global market for recycled items, Earth Waste & Metals along with other recyclers in the area have begun charging to accept recyclable items. Unfortunately, this has made Putnam’s recycling program cost prohibitive. We will continue to collect recyclables through August 27th 2019 then our recycling pick up program will end. Ticonderoga will accept recyclables at the Vinyard location free of charge, Whitehall transfer station will also accept items for a fee.
