Council to Consider Adding New Trash Option to Current Program

The Perkasie  Borough Council is considering adding 96-gallon “toters” as an option for trash collection. They would like to hear from residents who would be interested in using the toters instead of bags (the bag program will remain an option, even if Council votes in favor of adding toters as a second option). Check your mail – this short information sheet was sent out on Friday.
