Yard waste collections will begin on Wednesday, March 17, 2021 and run every Wednesday through December 8, 2021. As a reminder, all collections are considered to be grass clippings, leaves, and small twigs. Collections must be in biodegradable bags, refuse type containers, or in bundles if you are setting sticks at the curb. Please remember that containers and bags should weight less than 40lbs each, please do not set items in the street. For more information, please visit the Refuse and Recycling portion of our website.
The Borough of Wyomissing wants to remind residents that refuse and recycling should be set out no later than 5:00 a.m. the day of collection, and no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the night before collection. This allows the haulers to schedule their day based on their workload, and begin early if necessary. The haulers, nor the Borough are responsible for collecting materials that have not been set out in time. If you are concerned about setting your refuse and recycling out the night before due to wildlife, as per Borough Code, be sure that refuse and recycling is placed in lidded containers and not as loose bags along the curb. Also make sure lids are securely on such containers to help deter wildlife. Containers should also be set on the planting strip or at the curb to reduce the risk of containers being hit by vehicles, swept away during rain events, and to better assist Borough Public Works crews during Fall leaf collection. We kindly ask for your cooperation in this matter.

You may have noticed the recycling mailer that was sent out by J.P. Mascaro, increasing the type of items that can now be recycled. The Borough of Wyomissing is pleased to announce that we are now participating in the Flexible Plastic Packaging Program offered through J.P. Mascaro. What has changed? You are less restricted to the items you put in your recycle container, empty bottles, containers and packaging need to be thoroughly washed out, and due to the light-weight items now accepted, we ask that residents utilize the lids provided with your recycling cans.
