Borough gets new recycling bins for residents

The Borough has received a grant for new recycle bins for its residents. These newer bins are heavier and  taller than the previous bins and will allow you to put more recycling into them. Not only is it mandatory to recycle but the Borough receives state funds for recycling.   PLEASE   RECYCLE!

You may pick up a bin at the Borough Office front desk Monday through Friday from 9:00am to 3:00 pm.

You must bring identification with you to show you are a  homeowner living in the  Borough.   A drivers license with your address, a utility bill or trash bill are examples of identification for residing in the Borough.

To help with the distribution of the bins   for those residents that cannot come to the Borough office during working hours, the Borough is making the following dates available to pick up your free  recycling bin.

Saturday, March 12, 2016 9:00 am to 12:00 pm at Borough Office 308 Locust St.

Wednesday, March 16, 2016   4:30 pm to 7:30pm at Borough Office 308 Locust St.

Once all residents have received bins, we will allow anyone to purchase additional bins for a cost of $15.00.

Rental properties must go through your landlord to obtain bins.

    1. Reading comprehension isn't your strong suit? The notice says rental properties must go through your landlord.

  2. Sarcasm seems to be a strong point with nameless comments
