The Village of Mineola issued the following notice on December 20, 2012. Copies were distributed by hand delivery to every commercial collection customer.
Christmas Holiday Refuse Collection Schedule
We take this opportunity to remind our commercial collection locations that there is no refuse collection on Christmas Day, Tuesday, December 25th.
Unfortunately, in past years, many commercial establishments have placed their refuse at the curb on these days, and it has made the Village unsightly for the holidays. We ask that you please refrain from depositing any refuse at the curb from Monday night, December 24th through Christmas Day, Tuesday, December 25th. Please keep all refuse in your building during this time. We remind you that it is a violation of the Village Code to place refuse out at the curb at night. Refuse may once again be placed at the curb for collection on Wednesday morning, December 26th. We appreciate your assistance and cooperation in this matter as we do not wish to issue summonses this holiday season.
If you would like to receive email notices of sanitation schedule changes or holiday reminders, please visit our Village website at http://www.mineola-ny.gov to subscribe to e-Notices.
We thank you for your anticipated cooperation in helping to keep our Village clean this holiday season.
We wish you a happy, safe and healthy holiday season!
