Patterson is comprised of two garbage districts. District 1 includes most the Putnam Lake area, and is serviced by Suburban Carting Company. District 2 includes all parts of the town outside of the Putnam Lake area. Both Garbage Districts are funded through a separate line item in your property tax bill.

The Town of Patterson strongly encourages all residents and business owners to participate in the recycling programs available in our town. SINGLE STREAM is fiber and co-mingles mixed and collected together and should equal 75% of your garbage. Household garbage should equal 25% of your total waste. Please refer to the Recycling page for details of the Silver Stream program.

Bulk Dropoff / Pickup (All Districts)

Residents of Districts 1 and 2 can bring bulk dropoff items to the Recycling Center. Permits can be obtained at Town Hall.

The Town and Suburban Carting Company reserve the right to refuse to pick up any hazardous or toxic waste, or items that cannot be identified. Putnam County sponsors two annual hazardous waste pickups which must be used for the disposal of hazardous wastes. The County will publicize the dates of the collections in the local newspapers and on the Putnam County website. These dates will also be posted on the announcements page of the Town of Patterson website. You may also contact the Putnam County Health Dept. at 845-278-6130 for more information.

Electronic waste is not accepted. Please contact the manufacturer or the place of purchase for disposal information.

Bulk items are not to be placed at curbside until a pickup date is arranged.
