The Croton-on-Hudson Department of Public Works (DPW) begins a new yard waste collection program next month. The new program provides residents with the convenience of disposing of leaves, twigs and small branches, shrub and hedge trimmings & flowers—all at once—in biodegradable paper bags or open top garbage cans (free biodegradable bags will NOT be given out until fall).
