Yard Waste Collection
2020 YARD WASTE COLLECTION SCHEDULE
The Borough offers a bimonthly curbside Yard Waste Pickup Program, which is held from April through October of each year. Borough crews will pick up yard waste at curbside on the same days of regular recycling pick-ups in the borough according to the schedule below. Residents may place at curbside for pick up, on these weeks only, a reasonable quantity of woody yard wastes materials from your own property – including tree branches, limbs and cuttings, small bushes (without the root ball), hedges, and tree logs not exceeding five inches (5”) in diameter. The Borough crews will not pick up leaves, grass clippings, flowers, vines, roots, or garden/vegetable plants as part of these yard waste collections. The yard waste materials collected will be transported to the Recycling Center on Lincoln Avenue where the branches/yard wastes will be ground up and processed for mulch.
The upcoming Schedule for 2020 Borough Yard Waste Pickups is as follows:
Monday – Thursday, April 13 – 16
Monday – Thursday, June 8 – 11
Monday – Thursday, September 14 – 17
Monday – Thursday, October 26 – 29
Residents should place their yard wastes at curbside on the same day of the week as their regular recycling pickup during the above week dates only. Branches and limbs must be cut into manageable lengths (no more than 4 ft.), tied or bundled and stacked as best possible, alongside the road in front of your residence but not on the road pavement.
Borough residents may also continue to bring yard wastes to the Twin Borough Recycling Center off Lincoln Avenue during regular Center hours. The yard waste program is for Borough residents and property owners only. Anyone bringing in yard wastes from outside the Borough will be prosecuted for violation of Borough ordinance requirements.
Please remember that the Borough garbage contractor, Waste Management of PA, Inc., is not responsible for picking up branches, limbs, and other “woody” yard waste materials under their refuse contract with the Borough.
Borough residents may also pick up at the Recycling Center, free of charge, mulch that is produced from the ground-up yard wastes (depending on availability). Please be advised, however, that you have to shovel and load your own mulch!
