With fall now upon us, I would like to remind you of the Village's Good Neighbor Rules. The operation of any landscaping equipment, such as leaf blowers, lawn mowers and edgers is prohibited on Sundays, holidays and before 8 a.m. on all other days. As a reminder, all commercial and residential landscapers, even if licensed in the town or county, must be licensed by the Village of Farmingdale (licenses can be obtained at Village Hall). As a courtesy to your neighbors, do not bring yard waste and other garbage to the curb until after sunset the night before garbage pickup (every Tuesday and Friday). Empty garbage cans should be brought in within two hours after pick up. Up to 10 bags of leaves may be placed curbside on Tuesday nights for pick up by the Town of Oyster Bay on Wednesday morning. Residents may also rake loose leaves into the street for the Village leaf vacuum to pick up (a fall leaf schedule will be arriving in your mailbox in the next few days). If choosing to do so, please keep in mind that although this service circulates through the community daily, it only reaches the individual streets about once every ten days. Please remember to drive carefully and obey all speed limits when driving through our residential streets and always watch for children playing.
