New Transfer Station Guidelines
After much consideration by the Town Board, the Town of Plattekill Transfer Station will require a permit to access the Transfer Station. Due to the ever increasing fees imposed on the town from Ulster County Resource Recovery Agency, this increase is necessary.
Starting April 1, 2016, Plattekill residents will be required to purchase a yearly permit to use the Town of Plattekill Transfer Station. After much consideration by the Town Board, it was decided to have each household purchase a permit from the Town Clerk’s office.
Each permit will last for (1) year from date of purchase. Resident fee: $35.00, Senior fee: $20.00, Day fee: $20.00, Commercial fee: $150.00, additional permits may be purchased for: $5.00.
Other price changes also effective as of April 1, 2016 will be the following; Bulk Refuse: $35.00 per yard, C & D: $50.00 per yard, Kitchen or Office Chairs: $4.00 each.
The following items will be charged DOUBLE IF RECEIVED WET: Living room furniture: $6.00 per seat, Sofa: $18.00, Sleeper Sofa: $25.00. For a mattress or box spring; Twin: $6.00 each piece, Full/Queen: $9.00 each piece, King: $12.00 each piece.
The Town of Plattekill hasn’t had a rate increase since 2009. At this time we are trying to keep our fees as reasonable as possible. Please remember that the rate increase and the new prices set forth have been evaluated at great length to be fair to each and every resident. Thank you in advance for your patience and cooperation during this transition!

American Flag Drop Box
The Town of Plattekill proudly announces the placement of an American Flag Drop Box in front of the Plattekill Town Hall. The idea came from a resident of the Town suggesting the need of a local drop off designated for ripped or tattered American Flags, to then be disposed of accordingly.
A 1958 mailbox was donated by the Laskowsky Family for just such a use. Once the mailbox was prepped for restoration, two Boy Scouts from our Town completed the process by joining forces on this most worthy community service project.
Patrick Leonard from Troop 70 & Dustin Colombo from Troop 195 worked together to paint the mailbox Red, White & Blue. Decals donated by Don Dubois, owner of Sign Designs were then applied.
American Flags of all sizes can be placed in the American Flag Drop Box to be retired respectfully. Stop by and see our little piece of history!
