Public Works Department Information

Collection Schedule
If your garbage collection day is Monday, your recycling collection day is the 1st and 3rd Thursday of every month. If your garbage day is Tuesday, your recycling day is the 2nd and 4th Thursday of every month.

Our pickup routes start very early in the morning. Even if route times are consistent, something may change at any given time, causing collection schedules to be sooner than expected. It is recommended that you place your can(s) at the curb the night before your scheduled collection day.

Our trucks need sufficient space to lift Garbage and Recycling cans safely and effectively. Therefore, resident's must place their cans 6 feet apart from other objects such as mailboxes, cars, etc. Additionally, cans must be placed at least 3 feet apart from each other. If there is not enough space for the truck to safely life the can, we cannot guarantee your Garbage or Recycling with be collected and you will need to drop it off at the Recycling Yard. Items placed at the curb become Borough property and only the Borough may collect them. Recyclables will not be collected if placed in plastic bags.

Single Stream Recycling for curbside residents.

Cancellations Due to Severe Weather
During severe weather, Borough Hall may close and garbage and/or recycling collection may be cancelled. If there is a cancellation, it will be posted on the website and an RSS Feed for "DPW News & Bulletins" will be sent out via Code Red.

Please do not call the Police Department to find out about cancellations. We need to keep the police lines open for emergencies.

Mailbox Reminder
Check your mailbox before the winter season. Check to make sure that it is not hanging over into the street and check the base to make sure that it is structurally sound. Only those mailboxes struck by a Borough plow or vehicle will be replaced by the Borough. Mailboxes that collapse or break due to rotten or defective bases will not be replaced. Those mailboxes that are replaced by the Borough will be replaced with a standard type of mailbox.
