Garbage & Recycling Service: Starting in January 2022 Harter's Fox Valley Disposal will be our new garbage and recycling service provider.  At that time pickup day will change to Thursday.  Garbage will remain weekly with first pickup January 6th and recycling bi-weekly with first pickup January 13th.  New carts will be delivered the week of December 13th -17th and your old carts are expected to be picked up soon after.  You can use the new carts once your old ones are gone, Waste Management will be servicing the new carts through December 31st. Please keep in mind that routes will likely change in January, so please have your carts out the night before in case you are an early stop on the route.


Mailbox Policy

Snowplow operators use a great deal of care when plowing our Town roads under sometimes very difficult conditions. However, accidents can happen and mailboxes may be damaged.

The Town must be notified within 72 hours of the damage incident. The Town of Knowlton or its designee will conduct an investigation of the alleged damage.

Mailboxes/posts tipped, damaged or knocked down by the mere weight of the snow will not be repaired or replaced by the Town of Knowlton.

If the damage to the mailbox/post is a result of being struck by a plow, the Town will deliver a standard mailbox and/or 4 X 4 post within 72 hours of determination.

Since the trucks cannot plow directly up to the edge of a mailbox, residents may need to do clearing to help mail delivery. Newspaper boxes will not be repaired, replaced or reinstalled by the Town.
