The Town of Stony Point's Highway Department works every day to keep our roads as safe as possible. The town's fleet of trucks and an experienced team not only ensure that town roads are treated and plowed in the winter, but are also paved and maintained. The Department also repairs failed drain lines and catch basins and picks up brush and appliances. They also work cooperatively with other town departments to assist with projects involving our Golf Course, Parks Department, Sewer Department and other areas in the town. Recently one of our own, Anthony Perri, Highway Maintenance Supervisor, received the Floyd F. Wilcox Award for excellent performance in Public Works.

Grass Clippings
Due to new regulations, the Highway Department and the sanitation carters are no longer allowed to pickup grass clippings.  If you must bag your grass clippings, they must be brought to the Highway Department in biodegradeable bags.  They will not be picked up.  Due to recycling regulations, plastic bags are not to be used at all.

Biodegradeable bags are available at the Highway Department during the months of October/November and March/April WHILE SUPPLIES LAST. 


Residents are encouraged to grasscycle rather than bag their grass clippings!
