The Village of Scarsdale Sanitation Department is responsible for the removal of the following solid waste and recyclable materials from residential locations within the Village of Scarsdale.

Please note: Yard access is for residents only.

Please disposal of dog waste properly! Yard waste and dog waste don’t mix. Importantly, yard waste, such as lawn clippings, leaves, and branches, are often recycled into mulch or other yard and garden materials. Dog waste can pollute the mulch and our waterways, and poses a health risk for pets and people when not properly disposed of.

To dispose of pet waste properly, please secure it in plastic bag and deposit it in your trash receptacle. When walking your dog, be sure to clean up any waste, take it home, and dispose of it in your trash – please do not deposit it in someone else’s trash or yard waste.
