JEFFERSON — Village leaders are concerned with residents’ leaving large items to be picked up by Waste Management without obeying the rules.
Jefferson Village Administrator Pasquale Martuccio said large items with cloth coverings can not be left on the tree lawn for pickup unless they are wrapped in plastic. He said people must also let the village know about large items for pickup ahead of time.
The village clean-up day is scheduled for this weekend and the same rules must be followed regarding wrapping items that have a cloth covering, such as couches and chairs.
“Some of the things that are out there are not going to be picked up,” said Jefferson Mayor Judy Maloney.
