IMPORTANT MESSAGE FROM THE ROCKVILLE CENTRE POLICE DEPARTMENT:
The RCPD is asking the public who require police assistance to please be transparent and as descriptive as possible about the health of anyone at the location where a response is being requested.  The health of our police officers is paramount to allowing the department to continue delivering the highest level of quality service and swift response times residents are accustomed to during these difficult times.

Additionally, if you have a non-emergency matter with RCPD, please call headquarters at (516)766-1500 in lieu of walking into the station house as the department may be able to provide services remotely or have an officer come directly to you

Important Message Regarding our Sewer System
With toilet paper hard to come by, it has been reported some folks are running out and using what they can to cleanse themselves.  Some wipes advertised as being "flushable" or "biodegradable" are in fact not.
Wipes can wreak havoc on pipes and clog them up, which could cost an unfortunate homeowner hundreds, if not thousands, of dollars to get cleared.  It also threatens the pumps used in the treatment process.  That also goes for paper towels, tissues, and napkins.
The Village sewer system is seeing an increase in volume, which was expected given the number of people staying in their homes as part of efforts to prevent the spread of coronavirus.  We urge all residents to think twice before flushing other materials down their commodes.  Please help us to protect our workers and sewer systems.

Sanitation and Recycling
As of now, we are following the normal sanitation and recycling schedule, including bulk pick-up on Wednesday. 
Please be advised, E-Cycling and the opening of the Transfer station will resume on Saturday, June 6th from 10am -  2pm .
Please be sure to properly dispose of gloves and masks.  Do not leave them on the ground and make sure that your garbage is securely closed to protect our sanitation workers as well as each other.

Sandel Center:
Keep up to date with what's happening at the Sandel Center.  Watch a message from Director Chris O'Leary and exercise with Deputy Director Nancy Codispodi here
