Local 2013 Election Results

Notice Tioga County Residents

We have been getting calls from various people with questions concerning your recycling pickup. Tioga County recycling program has changed as of 2/1/2013. Because of market changes, there will no longer be any curbside pickup of plastic bags. Exception to the rule - it is ok to put shredded paper out into a plastic bag to contain the paper. Grocery bags may be returned to most stores, all other plastic bags should be placed in the trash. Many people are not aware that the only glass that is recyclable curbside is glass jars or glass bottles (clear, green or brown in color); all other glass goes into the trash. No Styrofoam or cardboard with Styrofoam attached to it. Remove Styrofoam before recycling the cardboard.

We have also received some complaints concerning our pickup service;

We strive to provide good service. We are now picking most all of our recycling in trucks that look like garbage trucks. Be assured that we are recycling all of the material picked up. You no longer have to sort your recycling material curbside. The new facility does all the sorting for you, so mix all your recycling together in one container now. If you have questions on what material can be recycled curbside go to click on (RECYCLING DEPT.) to find a list.

Notice Regarding Open Burning
In towns with a total population less than 20,000, 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.
