Now that the warmer weather is here…

Warmer weather is coming, and with that is yard clean up. The Village of Middleport Public Works Department reminds Village residents of its yard waste pickup policies: LEAVES: In the fall (Oct & Nov), leaves are to be raked to the edge of the street and left in open piles. Any other time they are to be bagged and placed out with garbage. BRUSH: Brush is to be placed at the curb, butt side toward the street, stacked no more than 4 feet high. Please do not place roots, stumps, vines or rose bushes out for chipping. We ask you to follow this for the safety of our employees. Brush will be chipped each Monday except for the months of January, February and March. When More Info »

Drop box for unwanted prescriptions

Just a reminder, if you have outdated or unwanted prescription drugs or over the counter drugs or supplements, there is a drop box in the Middleport Police Department (22 Main Street, next door to the Village Hall, 24 Main Street) to get rid of those things. This drop box is available to everyone, not just Village residents. If you want to get that outdated stuff out of your house, here is an easy solution to that problem. PLEASE do not flush unwanted items as that has had a tremendously negative impact on the environment. All drugs and supplements deposited in the dropbox are disposed of responsibly by the proper authorities.

Porches of Middleport poster available

Need a great gift idea? How about a poster, suitable for framing, that captures all the warm welcomes that Middleport is known for! The 18″ x 24″ poster featuring some of Middleport, New York’s welcoming porches is available for a $5 donation. The funds raised from the donations for the “Falling for the Porches of Middleport” will then be used to publish a book written by Anna Wallace, former Village Historian. Her book chronicles Middleport’s history, and funds are needed to publish it. The photos of the porches were all taken by local photographer Gretchen Schweigert during this last fall. The porches are from all over the Village of Middleport and feature the look and feel of fall in the Village. If you are interested More Info »

Now that the snow is here…

… a friendly reminder to all: it is a violation of NYS Traffic & Vehicle Law to put snow out into the street while cleaning around your property. Please remember you should not push snow out onto the street when plowing, snowblowers should direct snow into the yard not out into the street, and shoveled snow should not be thrown into the street. Thanks, all, for being considerate to your fellow travelers when cleaning up after Mother Nature!
