UPDATED: 1/23/2016 12:30am

Based on the current 24″-36″ forecast, it appears that accumulations will be more than expected.  Public Works continues to try to keep the main roads open.  We ask all residents to be patient.   If you do not have to go anywhere, don’t.    Once the “dig out” begins, we ask residents for their cooperation by not shoveling into the street and by not putting any items into parking spaces that have been cleared.   Please be neighborly and check on your neighbors and assist in any way you can.    This is an historic event and everyones cooperation will be needed.

Important Reminders to Residents for Winter Trash Pickup

In preparation for the upcoming winter season, please help the Borough and Republic Services safely and efficiently service your property during inclement weather by following the requests below:

  1. Containers need to be placed in an area where they can roll freely. The area must also be salted and free of snow and ice.
  2. If your container is located in an alley, the entrance to the alley needs to be wide enough for our trucks (9 feet). We will be unable to service your account if the alley is blocked by snow, parked cars, low wires, etc.
  3. Please keep your containers at least 4’ away from mailboxes, posts, signs, etc…
  4. The call for inclement weather could change the times you are typically serviced. Please be patient as we will service our customers until the roadway conditions become unsafe.

During inclement weather, you can contact us at www.republicservices.com for updates on our service schedules.

Adjusted Trash Schedule for Pine Street Residents

In order to allow for pickup of all trash on Pine Street between Harrisburg Street and Orchard Drive, Republic Services will change the time for trash pickup to between 6 am and 7 am until the Pine Street detour is lifted.

This change is necessary to allow Republic Services the access it needs to pick up all trash in the area. Please be sure to have your trash set out for pickup by 6 am on Wednesdays until the detour is lifted.

Republic Services will also be making phone calls to residents today to notify them of the change. Thank you for your patience as we continue to work on improvements to Pine Street in this area.
