Use a tarp when transporting your trash in an open vehicle (i.e. pick-up truck or trailer) to prevent items falling out or being blown out of your vehicle.
All open vehicles entering the Transfer Station must have a tarp covering the materials. Tarping prevents trash or recyclables from becoming litter on our roads. It also prevents customers from being fined upt to $1,000 by the NYS DEC. Untarped vehicles may be refused access to the Transfer Station.
In towns with a total population less than 20,000, (Spafford population is 1,686) you may burn tree limbs with attached leaves. The limbs must be less than 6 inches in diameter and 8 feet in length (also referred to as brush).
However, this is not allowed from March 16 through May 14 due to the increased risk of wildfires.
