Trash Collection Pick-Up

Trash
EVERY Wednesday is Garbage Collection pick-up day. The truck comes very early in the morning so it is suggested that trash be placed at the curb, after 4:00PM, the night before.

Brush Pick-Up (**UPDATED 3/13/24**)
 
Starting Monday, March 27, 2023 there will be a spring/summer and fall/winter brush schedule. For spring/summer, between March until October, brush collection will occur Monday & Tuesday. Weekly brush collection returned on March 4th. Bagged/containerized, non-chippable yard waste will be collected first. The chipper will then go around after. This may lead to some brush being collected Tuesday mornings. Brush intended for the chipper should be cut to no more than 6 feet in length and stacked loosely with the cut ends pointing in the direction of travel. Brush, branches and logs with diameters larger than 6" should be cut shorter than 4 feet when possible. Piles or bundles of brush intended for the chipper no longer needs to be tied and bundled.  Grass clippings will NOT be picked up. Please compost or mulch these items.
 
 
For fall/winter, October-February, there will be no brush collection so DPW can focus on leaf collection and snow removal. During this time, residents are welcome to drop off their brush at the wastewater treatment plant on Breza Road Monday through Friday between the hours of 6:30AM and 2PM. Spring brush collection will resume the week of March 6th weather permitting. 
 
Woodchips (**UPDATED 12/05/23**)
Residents are welcome to come down to the wastewater treatment plant on  Breza Road to pick up free woodchips. These woodchips are made from the Borough's brush that is run through the chipper during the year. 
 
Bulk Goods
EVERY SECOND Wednesday is Bulk Trash pick-up day. Trash that is too large to be stored in a regular trash can, but is also NOT recyclable, a white goods item, electronic waste, hazardous waste, construction waste or metal is then classified as bulk trash. For a complete list of what is NOT bulk trash see below.
  • Metal items, including outdoor grills, will also NOT be collected as part bulk trash per the hauler.
  • Mattresses and box springs must be wrapped in plastic or in mattress bags (available at home improvement stores) for collection due to concerns over bedbugs and COVID-19. Mattresses over the full size or larger, must first be wrapped in plastic, then folded in half, and tied with a rope. 
  • Anything over 4ft in length must be cut in half. 
  • Anything with glass will need safety tape in an "X" across the glass. 
  • No loose bulk items may be left by the curb. Items must be packaged in either a container, a contractor bag, or bundled for collection. 
  • Only 9 small-medium sized items or four large items can be picked up per household on bulk trash days. 

Items should be placed at the curb the night prior. Please call Borough Hall to get added to the list for pick-up. The list is closed at 12PM the day before pick-up. If you are not on the list, your items will not be collected. Call 609-259-3151.
