Contactless Borough Bag Purchases

Effective Friday, April 3, the Borough of Carlisle has expanded trash bag purchase and delivery options for residents affected by the current COVID-19 emergency measures. This temporary service will allow residents to continue practicing social distancing and avoid making unnecessary trips to retail establishments while Cumberland County is under the Stay-at-Home Order from Governor Tom Wolf.

Borough residents have two options for purchasing Borough trash bags:

  • Call:  Borough Hall at 717-249-4422 during normal business hours (M-F, 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.). Residents will be required to provide their credit card information and mailing/delivery address.  Note: Callers will not incur credit card fees for this service.
  • Online Ordering: Access the Borough of Carlisle Parks & Recreation’s secure online payment site at https://apm.activecommunities.com/carlislerec. In the “Search” field, type “trash bags”. Online orders are for purchases of three or more bags.  Note: The Borough’s online credit card service provider, ActiveNet, charges a convenience fee for this service.

The Borough has attempted to provide options for both low and high volume users. Low volume users who order no more than two bags per week will receive their order via U.S. Mail.  Call-in and online orders of three bags or more will receive convenient home delivery, which will be performed by designated staff members carrying Borough identification.

Note:  Borough bags may still be purchased at local grocery stores, convenience stores, and pharmacies. Click here for a list of retailers.
