Clarkstown Updates Residents from Aftermath of Hurricane Irene


The Town of Clarkstown will be conducting a special bulk pick up collection town wide starting Tuesday, September 6th until Friday, September 16th.  There is no limit on quantity; however, as always, only items on the acceptable household bulk list will be picked up.  Please click here for more details about acceptable waste. 


All household hazardous waste can be brought to the Rockland County Household Hazardous Waste Disposal Program in Pomona.  For more information on household hazardous waste please call 364-2444.    


Yard waste or debris is continuing to be picked up by our Highway Department.   


It is very important to keep your bulk pick up and yard waste pick separate at your curb! They will NOT be picked up if mixed together!     


Our Highway crews are working hard to clear our streets and streams.  The following roads are still closed:

1.  Patricia Drive, New City  - off of New Hempstead Road
2.  South Mountain Road, New City - west of Little Tor 
3.  Brookside Avenue, Valley Cottage 
4.  Ridge Road, Congers - between Highway Avenue and Lakeview Court 
5.  Cottage Avenue, Nanuet - between Highview Avenue and South Middletown Road
6.  Gilchrest Road, Congers -  between Emerald and the Congers dam 
7.  Colton Street, Congers - by New York Avenue


At this time, unfortunately, there are still many residents without power.  Supervisor Gromack has been in constant contact with representatives from Orange and Rockland trying to get information on when power will be restored.   For more information please call 1-877-434-4100 or visit  


The Town opened two reception centers on Saturday for residents in need of shelter.  Those reception centers are still open for residents without power to go and also charge their phones and other electronic devices Monday to Friday 8am to 10pm.  Please see community center staff for charging stations.

Many residents have asked if they are eligible for federal assistance for damage from Hurricane Irene.  We have been in contact with the County of Rockland concerning eligibility for FEMA aid.  At this time, the County is waiting for word from federal and state governments. In the meantime, the County of Rockland suggests residents document any expenses incurred and take photos of any damage.  We hope to know more in the near future. 


The Town of Clarkstown is still in a State of Emergency due to the affects of Hurricane Irene.  Prior to the storm we began implementing our emergency response plan and the coordination of all appropriate agencies.  The Town's Emergency Operation Center was up and running all weekend and Town officials and staff are continuing to work to address our residents' needs.
