If you live in the Town of New Paltz in Ulster County and you have trash pick up at your house from any other company than County Waste, police are starting to hand out tickets.

Last year the New Paltz Town Board approved a law called the "single hauler law", which cleared the way for a single license to pick up garbage in the town and village be granted to County Waste and no other company, according to Hudson Valley One.

It looks like police are going to start ticketing truck drivers of other waste company if they are caught picking up or hauling trash within the town or village. New Paltz Police Chief Joseph Snyder told HV One that no tickets have been issued yet but according to New Paltz Board Trustee Dennis Young, this is the final warning.

Young also said that if anyone is receiving residential trash pickup through any other company than County Waste that they “will have service interruptions soon,” because “police are actively monitoring routes” to see who is violating the law.

If you see any other company hauling trash, they are asking that you report them to the town or the village clerk and if you have yet to sign up for waste removal from County Waste you can contact them at 518-877-7007, option 3 to sign up.

New Paltz Mayor, Tim Rodgers did tell HV One that the single-hauler laws are “a success” because residents are reporting to him that they have noticed less of the large, noisy trucks on the roads, which was one of the main reasons for the new law.
