The Village of Mohawk is implementing a new recycling program for its residents. The goal of the program is to increase recycling and make collection more efficient and convenient.

The change will impact those who currently use garbage bags, or the current cart system. Each property will receive a brand new cart for recyclable items only. The bins are owned by Spohn Disposal, and should not be transported to a new location. Spohn Disposal will begin delivering the new carts during the final week in January.

All recyclable items must be placed loosely, with no plastic bags, string or twine, inside the new recycling cart with the lid closed to be eligible for pick-up. Garbage is prohibited from being placed in the recycling cart.

For questions regarding the new recycling collection program or for other solid waste and recycling information, please contact Spohn Disposal at 866-8820, Oneida-Herkimer Solid Waste Authority at 733-1224 or the Village of Mohawk at 866-4312.
