Recycling Center

The Philipstown Recycling Center is located at the top end of Lane Gate Road in Cold Spring. The facility is open Saturdays ONLY from 9 am to 3 pm.

Items accepted:
Paper and cardboard products
White goods (permit required) except for refrigerant-containing appliances
Metals (permit required)
Paper and cardboard products must be bundled with all insides removed, (foil, wax paper, etc.).

DO NOT USE plastic bags. No permit is required for recyclables. A permit is required for certain metal products and white goods (i.e. washing machines and scrap metal). All doors must be removed from washing machines.

Refrigerant Appliances (refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, dehumidifiers, mini-split condenser units and central cooling units) do not require a permit or any per vehicle fees.

DO NOT CUT THE REFRIGERANT LINES OR REMOVE THE REFRIGERANT FROM APPLIANCES. The Recycling Center now accepts appliances that still contain freon or other refrigerants. A third-party contractor will properly remove the refrigerant from the appliances left at the Recycling Center when the Town has accumulated more than 25 appliances.

If you need assistance transporting an old refrigerant appliance to the Recycling Center, please call the Town Clerk at 845.265.3329 extension 3 to schedule a free Saturday morning curb-side pick-up.
