Patterson is comprised of two garbage districts. District 1 includes most the Putnam Lake area, and is serviced by AAA Carting Company. District 2 includes all parts of the town outside of the Putnam Lake area. Both Garbage Districts are funded through a separate line item in your property tax bill.
Please refer to the Recycling page for details of the Single Stream program.
New York State law prohibits the disposal of electronic waste (e-waste) with household garbage due to the toxic materials used in their components. E-waste must be brought to the Recycling Center. Please refer to the Recycling page for detailed information.

These dates will also be posted on the announcements page of the Town of Patterson website. You may also contact the Putnam County Health Dept. at 845-278-6130 for more information.

Dear Town of Patterson, Garbage Dist 2 Residents,
Although now is a great time to do some spring cleaning, please do not exceed your allotted 3 – 45 gal bag or can limit. We can only pick up household (kitchen, etc) trash. We are unable to do any bulk pick ups at this time. This is mainly because all the trash will not fit on the trucks.
If you have any questions, please call 845-878-4341 or email email@example.com
Your compliance is greatly appreciated!
