The 2017 Yard Waste Program will begin on *March 15, 2017 and will continue until December 6, 2017. Yard waste is picked up every Wednesday throughout the entire Borough. All yard waste must be contained in a biodegradable brown paper yard waste bag for collection. PLASTIC BAGS ARE NOT ACCEPTABLE AND WILL NOT BE PICKED UP. Yard waste bags can be purchased at Borough Hall or any home improvement center. Note the yard waste bags cannot exceed 40 pounds and only 10 bags per week are allowed. Small branches and twigs are to be bundled together and tied. If they are loose, they will NOT be picked up. Branches cannot exceed 4′ in length or 6″ in diameter. Please do not put trash in the bags with the yard waste. Firewood, stumps, dirt or rocks are NOT considered to be yard waste. Do not attempt to put them out for collection, they will NOT be picked up. Those who use a trash can or any type of container for yard waste are reminded to remove the lid on the day of collection so the material can be identified. Thank you.
*Due to the winter storm of March 14, 2017, collection was postponed by one week; therefore, the hauler has agreed to extend their services by one additional week setting forth the conclusion of the Yard Waste Program to be December 13, 2017.
