NEW WINDSOR PUTS A STOP TO TRASH HEAP
After months of a dumping ground building up in the yards by Wendy’s just down the street from Vail’s Gate 5-Corners, the Town decided that enough was enough. Calls were made to no avail, and ownership of the property became in question. The messy lot is not owned by Wendy’s and is disturbing the rest of the attractively kept commercial area. So this past Monday New Windsor sent its trash trucks to remove the mess which just kept growing and growing. The owner will be sent a bill for the cleanup work and if not paid it will be added to their tax bill.
The problem is happening all over the county with donation boxes being put out by well-meaning organizations, but at some point towns will be pushed to set restrictions, and/or send bills.
