Transfer Station open for other items
The City of Beacon will accept bagged leaves with regular scheduled garbage pick-ups beginning Monday, Nov. 2, until the first snowfall. Leaves must be placed in biodegradable bags; plastic bags will not be accepted. Loose leaf pick-up will follow the same schedule as weather permits.

The leaves are transferred at no charge to the city Transfer Station at 95 Dennings Avenue. The Transfer Station also accepts appliances, car batteries, cardboard, computers and electronics, construction debris, furniture, metal and scrap, paper, tires, wood waste and yard waste. Some items require a minimal fee, although grass clippings may be dumped at no charge. The station does not accept air conditioners, refrigerators or smoke detectors. Compost and wood chips are available for city residents at no charge.
