Also available FOR MIDDLETOWN RESIDENTS ONLY (No Commercial Enterprises):
Yard waste and Recyclables can be dropped off at Recycling Center on Monhagen Avenue, Monday - Friday, 7 AM - 3:00 PM.

City of Middletown Water Meter Dept reminds you:

    • Over a three-month period a continuous leak can waste over 1 million gallons of water.
    • A running faucet uses about one gallon per minute.
    • Even a pinhole leak, such as in a washing machine hose, can waste up to 170 gallons a day.
LEAKS = Water and your $ trickling away. Read your water meter before and after a 2-hour period when no water is being used. If the meter doesn't read exactly the same, there is a leak. If you have questions or need assistance, call 845-346-4123.

NOTE: The Recycling Center on Monhagen Avenue will NOT be open on Saturdays until further notice.

Industrial Pretreatment Program for the City of Middletown NY

The City of Middletown’s Industrial Pretreatment Program (IPP) ensures that local, state and federal regulations are met regarding the quality of wastewater discharged into the City’s wastewater system. The City’s IPP has been created to protect the welfare of those living and working in the City and its natural environment. The IPP is targeted at minimizing discharges of pollutants from industries located within the City.

Some major elements of the City's IPP include reviewing pretreatment designs, issuing permits, performing inspections, collecting samples, reviewing self-monitoring reports, and enforcing regulations.

Below are the forms required to be completed by Industrial Users. For more information on the permit process and the fees, please feel free to call the DPW office at (845) 343-3169.
