The Borough operates on a “Pay as You Throw” program. Recycling is free and you only pay for the trash your business generates.
The system is pretty simple and inexpensive. You place your trash in Borough designated bags and it is picked up weekly. You can buy these bags at Borough Hall or at several area retailers. In 2018, the bags, produced by WasteZero, will cost $3.75 each. Each bag must weigh no more than 40 pounds once filled. Make sure it is tied at the top and then place it curbside no more than 24 hours before your designated pick-up day.
Recycling is picked up free of charge the same day that your trash is picked up. Recyclables must be in a separate recycling container. Heavy duty recycling containers can be purchased at Borough Hall for $9.
Trash collection will be ONE day late when your collection day falls on, or follows, one of the following holidays: New Year’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day.
Bulk Item Pick-Up
Businesses who participate in the Borough’s Pay as You Throw Program are eligible for one bulk item pick-up per week.
Bulk items must be placed curbside along with your designated green Borough trash bags and recyclables no more than 24 hours before your designated pick-up day.
Acceptable items include: Furniture, carpeting, mattresses, box springs, appliances or white goods provided two persons can lift the item into the back of the truck. (Since white goods will be collected separately, the Borough reserves the right to collect these items within one week of their placement curbside.)
Non-acceptable items include: Electronics, construction debris, tires, automobile parts, brick, block, blacktop, rocks, dirt, tree trunks, stumps or roots, commercial/industrial waste, household hazards waster, paint, pesticides, solvents/chemicals, liquids, petroleum products, batteries, items too heavy for two people to lift (i.e. riding lawn mowers, pianos, etc.) or an item which weighs less than 40 pounds and would fit into a Borough bag.
**Pick-up of appliances that use freon, such as refrigerators, freezers, and air conditioners, must be scheduled in advance. Call 717-240-6930 to schedule a pick-up.**
