Just a friendly reminder when there is a snow storm coming, we ask Village residents to assist us by removing your vehicles from the roadway as per Village code 154.34 Vehicle and Traffic Law. This will allow our crews to efficiently clear the full width of the roadways. It takes our DPW crew approximately 4 to 5 hours after the snow fall has ended, to complete the clean up. All vehicles parked on Village roadways should be moved once we hit 2.5 inches.
❄️Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

Effective Immediately: The collection facility the Village of Cornwall-on-Hudson Department of Public Works, uses for our recycling drop off are no longer accept recycling in plastic bags. We ask that you please place your recycling in reusable containers for our crew to collect curbside. Your cooperation and assistance will be greatly appreciated.

Thank you for your cooperation and patience.
