MONDAY, FEBRUARY 15, 2016 IS PRESIDENTS' DAY. THIS IS NOT A HOLIDAY FOR TRASH OR RECYCLING. ALL PICKUPS (TRASH/RECYCLING) WILL BE ON A NORMAL SCHEDULE DURING THE WEEK OF 2/15/16 TO 2/19/16. THANK YOU.
We are receiving complaints from our trash hauler indicating that residents are putting bulk items out for pickup without a valid bulk item ticket. Tickets must be purchased at Borough Hall at a cost of $15 per ticket. If you have more than one item, you will be required to purchase a ticket for each item.
Only one item per week can be scheduled for pickup.
Because the pickup will be on your normal trash day, you will need to purchase the ticket(s) at least 2 days prior to your trash day.
Examples of bulk items are a couch/sofa, mattress, box springs, reclining chairs, book shelf, office chair, etc.
Electronics, appliances, construction materials, wood, and car parts are NOT acceptable. These items must be taken to a recycling center. Please call Berks County Solid Waste Office at 610-478-6362 to find a recycling center near you.
LEAF/YARD WASTE COLLECTION
The yard waste program has finished for 2015. The yard waste program for 2016 will begin again on March 16th and continue until December 7th. What do I do with my yard waste, you ask. You have two options one being that you hold your yard waste material until the program begins again in 2016, or have it disposed of by a private hauler. If you put it out with your trash, it will not be picked up.
