Rotterdam's compost facility has been operational since 1992, highway superintendent James Longo said. The facility is open six days a week, Monday through Friday, 8 a.m. to 7 p.m., and Saturday, 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., beginning on April 1 and closing at the end of November.
Longo said the compost facility costs the town about $80,000 a year, including the operation of the machines and the employment of three watchmen.
Longo said crews work every day picking up bagged and bundled debris from homes. He said the fall gets very busy.
"Be patient," he said. "We always get it picked up."
The County Legislature is expected to vote on this resolution at its Tuesday, Sept. 11, meeting.
