A Message from the Supervisor

Lately, there has been coverage in the local media concerning the subject of rats. In an effort to keep the rat population in our town under control, the Town of Lancaster wishes to inform you that, in accordance with Town Ordinance, all garbage stored outside, as well as garbage placed at the curb for pickup, must be in leak proof containers with a tight fitting lid. Enforcement efforts are currently underway. By complying with the ordinance, not only do you avoid the hassle of possibly going to court and incurring a fine, but of even greater importance, you help our community to remain safe and nuisance-free. Thank you for assistance.

New Local Laws related to Refuse and Recycling were adopted by the Town Board on January 20, 2015
Important changes are as follows: Every owner and/or occupant of any residential property located within the Town of Lancaster’s Refuse District shall be responsible for storing all refuse in a leak-proof container with a close-fitting cover at all times until removed from the premises at disposal. Such container, including contents, shall not exceed sixty (60) pounds in weight.

A revised Refuse and Recycling brochure is posted and can be accessed by using the link below. Copies are also available at Lancaster Town Hall.
