TRASH AND GARBAGE COLLECTION—- MOVING TO 1x PER WEEK in 2021!
Trash and garbage pick-up will be one time per week starting in 2021. The Borough will be shifting to automated carts which are larger in size than a traditional trash can. One cart will be provided to each residence at no cost. If additional carts are needed the resident will be responsible to purchase a cart from the Borough. No outside carts will be picked up.

Residents are requested to have trash, rubbish and garbage at the curb line by 6:00 a.m. on scheduled collection day; however NOT ANY EARLIER than 4:00 p.m. on the day prior to collection. Collections commence at 6:00 a.m. and are completed by 4:00 p.m. except in cases of unusual delay, breakdown, or storms of unusually heavy intensity. Empty containers are to be removed from the curb line by 8:00 p.m. the day of collection. STAY TUNED FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION!
