Shandaken to hold metal collection week

Shandaken — The long held and popular tradition of an annual metal pick up by the Shandaken Highway Department is once again upon us.
Starting on Monday, June 14, crews with dump trump trucks and loaders will comb every nook and cranny of town and pick up any old lawn mower, washing machine, tire rim, rusty barbecue grill, hot water heater, or just about any other metal object that residents no longer want.
The key word here is metal. Please do not expect your old tires to be carted off, or your old plastic pool, or those 14-dozen empty wine bottles or, well, you get the picture.
And please have you old refrigerator, air conditioner or freezer free of Freon, before putting it out at the curb.
Highway Superintendent Eric Hofmeister said this week, “Please try to have everything out on Sunday June 13.”
