The Town of Greece Transfer Station, located at 635 Flynn Road, operates as a residential yard waste recycling center under a NYS Department of Environmental Conservation permit.  This facility exists for the benefit of our Greece residents to bring certain yard waste materials generated by them from their own residential property.  This material is then recycled with Town equipment into mulch and compost and provided back to our residents for their personal use.  Mulch and compost can be picked up for FREE at this location or delivered directly to the resident for a nominal delivery fee.

Due to the size of the residential drop-off/pick-up areas, non-residents, private contractors and motorized equipment (used to load and unload debris) are not permitted. 

In addition, the use of rented dual axle and dump body trucks and trailers, as well as material generated from commercial properties cannot be brought to this location.  However, if a Greece resident personally owns a dual axle or dump body truck or trailer and is doing work on their own residential property, they should first visit the Greece Department of Public Works located at 647 Long Pond Road, provide a copy of their license and truck/trailer registration and they will be able to use this equipment to drop off their yard waste material on Monday's during regular business hours. 

Material dropped off at the Transfer Station must either be in paper bags or dumped loose in the identified piles.  The Town equipment that recycles this material can become clogged and possibly damaged by plastic bags, totes, buckets and similar items.

As a helpful reminder and in accordance with our state permit, the following items are permitted to be brought to the Town Transfer Station:

  • Brush, tree branches, grass clippings, leaves, sod, topsoil, concrete, and tree stumps that are reasonably free of dirt and rocks.

These items are NOT permitted to be brought to the Town Transfer Station as they cannot be recycled with Town equipment and given back to residents.  These include but are not limited to:

  • Lumber, floor tiles, roof shingles (and other building materials), fill dirt, tree stump grindings, wood chips, landscaping bricks and rocks, electronics, garbage, household appliances and any other material determined to be unacceptable for recycling.

Please Note:  Tree Service contractors must obtain a Town permit to perform tree work in the Town of Greece.  Please see the Tree Service Permit Application and program guidelines located on this website for more information.

The Town of Greece is pleased to provide our residents with the use of this facility to drop off their yard waste material.  Please contact the Greece DPW at 225-4590 with any questions.

The Department of Public Works sidewalk snow removal period begins in November and concludes in April. For the 2022 – 2023 Winter, Southern and Western side street sidewalks will be plowed. Most main roads and vicinities around schools and shopping centers will be plowed on both sides of the street.

The Town of Greece has eleven sidewalk routes which can take between four and five hours to complete depending on conditions. The eleven plowed routes cover approximately 500 miles of sidewalks.
