2020 REFUSE, RECYCLING AND YARD WASTE – Council at its special meeting October 25, 2019 voted 3-1 and one absent to keep all services provided by the Borough the same as in 2019. The Public Works Employees will pickup refuse on Monday, Yard Waste on Tuesday, and Recycling on Wednesday. There will be times that the pickups are delayed due to weather or other circumstances which means items may be picked up the following day. Also, during snow days, plowing takes priority over pickups. Please be patient. The Council also voted to keep using borough bags, and no increase in fees for 2020. Minutes of the meetings are posted following approval at the next regular meeting of council.
