We value your cooperation, working together to keep our community clean.

Please be aware that kitchen garbage and light trash is picked up in the rear of the house twice each week. Garden and yard debris is picked up at the curb. It must be either bagged or tied in bundles. Loose brush and large tree limbs will not be collected. They must be cut into 30-inch lengths and securely bundled. Heavy trash, garden or yard debris in bags exceeding 35 lbs will not be collected.

Curbside trash and bagged debris should be put out after 6:00 pm preceding the pickup day. If refuse containers are used, they must be removed from curbside within 12 hours after pickup.

Heavy trash and debris is collected the first Thursday of the month for bulk-pickup-day. This service is provided borough-wide. Due to early collection hours, residents are advised to put bulk waste out after 6:00 pm Wednesday evening before the pick-up.
