Mayor Mantello Announces New Free Bulk Trash Drop Off on Fridays for Troy Residents



Mayor Carmella Mantello announced today a new weekly free bulk trash drop-off program for city of Troy residents. It has been several years since Troy residents have been able to dispose of household items during the winter months. In the past the bulk pick-up has been suspended annually from December through Spring with residents then paying various fees. 

“This new free once a week bulk trash drop-off for city residents continues our commitment to make our streets safer and cleaner through our new Quality of Life Action Task Force,” said Mayor Mantello. “For too many years residents did not have a way to dispose of household items during the winter months and we are noticing more illegal dumping of mattresses and couches along our streets and alleyways.”

Mantello added, “Along with this new free service, we will continue to enhance our enforcement efforts placing mobile trail cams in certain illegal dumping hot spots and increasing our litter patrols and code enforcement throughout the city.” 

This free service is available, with proof of City of Troy residency, starting this Friday, February 2nd. The bulk trash drop-off will be available every Friday (weather dependent) during the winter months at the Troy Resource Management Facility (the Alamo). Hazardous waste, electronics, or construction materials will not be accepted.

The Troy Resource Management Facility (the Alamo) is located at 3000 Main Street in Troy and will be open each Friday (weather dependent) from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for bulk trash drop-off.
