Fall Clean Sweep

Press Release: Clean Sweep Event in Hartwick, NY on October 1, 2022

Our Fall “Clean Sweep” event is fast approaching. The Town of Hartwick will hold its popular event on Saturday, October 1, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Hartwick Town Hall, at 103 Town Drive.

The event will coincide with a weekend book sale hosted by the Kinney Memorial Library. The sale, taking place at the Hartwick Community Center, will be held throughout the weekend of September 30 to October 2 (Friday, from 8 am to 5 pm; Saturday, from 9 am to 5 pm; and Sunday from 9 am to 12 noon). For more information on the book sale, contact

Clean Sweep will allow town residents to freely dispose of old household furniture, yard trash, and scrap metal. Hartwick residents only can have their items picked up at their homes by a team of volunteers. Each load will carry a fee of $30. (Those who bring their own items to Town Hall can do so free of charge.) Please call Town Clerk Andrea Vazquez at 607-293-8123 or to make pickup arrangements. Also, please note that this service is for Hartwick residents only; proof of residency will be required.

Televisions and other forms of electronics, such as computers, will be accepted at Clean Sweep, and will be charged accordingly, based on the Otsego County fee schedule.

Here are other items that will also be accepted:

  • Mattresses and box springs at a charge of $35 per mattress or box spring.
  • Green waste, including leaves, grass clippings and branches under 4 feet long. All can be disposed of free of charge, but must be left at the designated area: Wells Avenue on Hatchery Road.
  • Tires. Six passenger tires can be dropped off free of charge. Beyond the six tires, there will be a variable fee, starting at $3, based on the size of each tire.

There will also be a $20-per-unit fee for the drop-off and disposal of appliances that contain Freon, such as refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers.

There will be glass recycling of Pyrex, ceramic dishes, sliding glass doors, window sash (frames removed) glassware, porcelain, toilets, and sinks. All glass will be taken to Andela Glass, which accepts glass on a daily basis from the general public.

Hartwick is seeking volunteers to help with Clean Sweep. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Town Clerk Andrea Vazquez at 607-293-8123 or

Clean Sweep will also feature a Yard Sale of items made available through donation. The yard sale will help offset the cost of expenses incurred by Clean Sweep.
