The Larchmont Mamaroneck Joint Sanitation Commission is a joint agency of the Village of Larchmont and Town of Mamaroneck. Created in 1938 by an act of the New York State Legislature the formation of the Commission was and continues to be an outstanding example of how the Village and the Town have worked together to achieve efficiencies in government operations.
The Commission is responsible for the collection and transfer of garbage and recycling material collected in the Village of Larchmont and unincorporated Town of Mamaroneck. Garbage and recycling collection services are provided to all residential properties as well as a majority of commercial properties in the Village and Town. Collection services are also provided to schools and houses of worship in the Village and Town. Aside from the collection services offered, the Commission operates the Maxwell Avenue Recycling Center. Residents may bring slightly used furniture, electronic waste as well as garbage, recycling material, organic waste and food waste to the facility.
The Commission is governed by a Board of Commissioners made up of the Mayor of the Village of Larchmont and Supervisor of the Town of Mamaroneck. Day to day operations of the agency are overseen by a Superintendent and Secretary Treasurer.
The Commission has been a leader in waste and recycling services. In 1971, the Commission was one of two agencies in Westchester County to have implemented a separate newspaper collection program. Today, the Commission collects not only newspaper but commingled containers and organic waste. Most recently in September of 2017 the Commission is one of three agencies in Westchester to have launched a food recycling program.
