Discontinuation of Branch Pickup

The Village of South Amherst to discontinue branch pick up, residents to take advantage of Republic Services Yard Waste Collection offering.

To make the best use of Village resources, the Mayor’s Office and Council have voted to discontinue branch pick up for the 2022 season. Many residents have taken advantage of this service in prior years and may already have branches ready for pickup. In light of that, there will be a one-time Spring branch pick up the week of May 2nd, 2022.

As our current waste hauler, Republic Services offers a COMPLETE YARD WASTE removal each week for residents of the village, providing increased convenience for residents to keep their yards and properties beautiful.
