Message from Asharoken Mayor Greg Letica:
October 15, 2021
Yesterday marked the end of an era in Asharoken. Barry Bradley, the Village's sanitation operator for the last 43 years, made his last run through the Village.
Over those years, Barry braved awful weather, brought a burning garbage truck to the firehouse to be put out, and took care of Big Blue as if it was his own.
He came to work every day with a big smile on his face and provided a personal touch to his job as only he could. Remarkably, he almost never missed a day due to illness, injury, or vacation. He is truly the ironman of garbage.
I had a chance to speak with Barry yesterday and asked him how he was feeling on the eve of his retirement. Not surprisingly, he said that what he was going to miss was seeing and speaking with his neighbors along the route. His friendliness is something that makes him so unique.
I would like to thank Barry for the terrific job he has done for the Village. I hope that your retirement is filled with health and happiness. We are going to miss you!
Wishing everyone a great weekend,
Dr. Gregory Letica, Mayor

Message from Asharoken Mayor Greg Letica:
September 24, 2021
Our sanitation operator Barry Bradley is resigning on October 15th. Barry has served our Village for 43 years providing excellent sanitation service throughout the years. We thank him and wish him the very best in his future endeavors.
The Board of Trustees received four competitive bid proposals from outside contractors on September 13th. We are currently reviewing all the proposals including the continuation of in-house sanitation and will be making a final decision at our Special Meeting held on September 28th, 2021, at 6:30pm. This will be an in-person meeting as well as teleconference. Call in number is 1-866-705-2554 passcode 137432.
The sanitation proposal includes the following services:
NEW: Trash will be picked-up on Tuesday and Friday avoiding all Monday holidays.
NEW: Yard waste will be picked every month instead of only nine months.
NEW: Glass will be combined with plastic and metal; no need to separate.
NEW: Bulk waste items greater than 50lbs including burnable items, furniture, mattresses, carpet/rugs, wood fencing, do-it-yourself construction debris, etc. will be picked-up.
NEW: Scrap metal items including stoves, refrigerators, freezers, washing machines, hot water heaters, metal furniture, barbecues, bicycles, etc. will be picked-up.
Bulk waste and scrap metal items are limited to 4 total each pickup.
Both Bulk waste and scrap metal items will be picked up every Friday with a limit of four items total per Friday.
NEW: Back door service will be offered to all residents. The contractor will collect trash, recyclables, bulk and scrap metal items and yard waste from a resident’s front or side door location. There will be an additional fee for this service of $900.00 a year or approximately $9.00 a pick-up. If you are interested, you will have to contact the contractor directly.
The proposed sanitation costs will remain the same for five straight years saving Asharoken approximately $20,000 per year. This cost reduction will help minimize tax increases.
In summary, outside sanitation provides expanded service at a lower cost to the residents. If you have any comments you would like to share you can email them to
