Borough Council Approves New Wheeled Cart Trash Service

64 gallon wheeled cart image 02Beginning later this year, Borough residents will have the option of a wheeled cart instead of the current bag program for trash removal. At the May 2nd Borough Council meeting, the Borough Council approved the new wheeled cart service. The carts will be provided by the Borough to residents that opt for the new service. They are 64-gallons in size and have wheels for easier use by customers. The carts will be green in color, and marked with the Borough’s tree logo.  The new wheeled cart service will be available at a cost of $70 per quarter plus the $15 annual fee paid by all residential customers.

Borough residents may continue to use Borough bags for trash removal. The fees for the trash bags have not changed ($2.25 for small black bags & $3.25 for large green bags). The annual fee was increased from $12 to $15 at the May 2nd public meeting. If you wish to continue using the Borough’s bag program, no action is necessary.

Sign up information will be available soon for the new wheeled cart service. The service is expected to begin in the late summer or early fall. The Borough will also be offering online bill pay for refuse service and electric service. The Borough hopes to implement this at the same time – in the late summer or early fall.
