Safety

Do I need a fence for my pool?

A fence is required for any pool capable of holding 24” of water or more and less than four feet in height. This includes the popular blow-up pools.

I've seen coyotes around my property, what should I do?

If you have experienced any issues with coyotes, please call The New York State Department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) at 845-256-3098. Eleven coyotes have been trapped in and around Airmont and relocated by the Department of Environmental Conservation. Coyotes are usually afraid of people and flee when we make loud noises or throw objects. Please limit food sources near your home, including garbage and bird seed, because they attract rodents that ultimately attract coyotes.

Am I responsible for access to the hydrant in front of my house?

It is the homeowner’s responsibility to keep the fire hydrant in front of their home clear of any snow or debris and to cut the grass around it during the growing season.

How can I find out if there are any registered sex offenders living near me?

Trash & Recycling

Where do I leave my trash and recyclables on pickup days?

The Village of Airmont has contracted for yard side pickup of your regular garbage.  There is no need to bring trash cans to the street. For Wednesday recycling, bins are to be left on the curb, but no earlier than 5pm on Tuesday nights.

Does the Village provide Fall leaf bags?

Fall Leaf Bags are available for pick-up at Village Hall from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm, Monday thru Friday. When clearing your lawn of leaves during the Fall season, it is beneficial to clean the leaves off of the storm drains to allow for water to pass through avoiding flooding on your street and/or your property.

What items are acceptable to be recycled?

Generally, paper, cardboard, plastic and glass bottles, and metal cans are all recyclable.  However, plastic bags, including grocery or shopping bags are not. If you are uncertain if an item is an acceptable item to be recycled or to be disposed of, please call Village Hall and/or Carlo Minuto Carting at 845-353-5678.

What do I do if my trash wasn’t picked up?

To report a missed garbage or recycling pick up after 4 pm, you may call Carlo Minuto Carting directly at 845-353-5678.

Am I required to place all my trash in trash bags?

The carting company will not pick up any loose garbage in your garage pails as per the Rockland County Sanitary Health Code. All garbage must be bagged.
