The village DPW collects yard materials on a weekly basis, generally on Mondays. Please place organic or garden materials, such as weeds, in paper lawn bags. Tree limbs and brush should be cut in 5 foot or shorter sections. Grass clippings will NOT be picked up.
Leaves may be left in piles at the curb for pickup in the fall.
Televisions, computer monitors and laptops may not be sent to landfills and will not be picked up via regular service. For more information on area waste and recycling programs, contact the GLOW Region Solid Waste Management Committee.
The Village of Perry offers a program called “Sidewalk Express”.
According to Village Code, property owners are responsible for repairing and maintaining the sidewalk on their property. While the Village is exploring sidewalk repairs in specific areas of the Village, property owners can use Sidewalk Express to expedite repairs to troubled sidewalk areas by paying the Village for the cost of materials. Labor is not charged for.
This program provides an economical way to expedite the repair of spots that might otherwise not be brought to the top of the Village's list of scheduled work.
Interested residents should contact the Clerk's Office to enroll in the program. Then, working with a representative from Public Works, the area will be measured and costs calculated based on current material costs. An agreement will be signed and payment for work will need to be made before work is scheduled.
The Village DPW plows village streets and public walkways as needed. Salt is applied to streets and roadways as a means of providing assistance to drivers in winter conditions when appropriate. Please be advised that salt application does not eliminate the hazards of driving on surfaces impacted by winter weather and always exercise caution when driving.
Parking is prohibited on village streets from November 1st through April 1st between 3:00am and 7:00am to facilitate snow removal and seasonal maintenance work.
Property owners are responsible for clearing their property (driveways, sidewalks). Please do not leave snow on village streets or block sidewalks when removing snow. Cooperation and assistance are greatly appreciated.
Recycling & Trash Collection
Recycling and trash collection is administered through Wyoming County and provided once per week by Waste Management. It is paid for through town and county taxes, and is a county program. Containers (holding less than 32 gallons) and trash should be placed between the sidewalk and street before 6am on Mondays. Do not place garbage and trash out before 6:00 PM on the night before pickup.
Residents may call CID Waste Management directly at 1-800-333-6590 or the Wyoming County Planning Department (the county agency in charge of the program) at 585-786-8820.
If the collection day falls on or follows the following holidays during that week – New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving, and Christmas – collection will be one day later.
Water & Sewer
The water source for the village is Silver Lake. In 2016, the Village was honored to be recognized for excellence in water quality and taste. Additional information on water and sewer services, including rates, is available in the Water & Sewer section.
