Recycling & Refuse

Posted on: December 20, 2018

Recycle your Holiday Tree


Recycling of fresh cut holiday trees will begin on Monday, January 7, 2019 and continue through Friday, January 18, 2019. Trees should be free of lights, ornaments and tree stands and should be placed with the trunk closest to the curb to facilitate recycling. Borough crews will process natural trees through a chipper and recycle the wood chips into mulch or compost.

If a snowstorm is predicted, please move your tree away from the curb to facilitate snow plowing operations and to prevent the tree from becoming part of a snow bank for the winter.

Beginning January 22, residents should submit for a bulk/brush collection online or call the Public Works Department at (814) 234-7135 or (814) 234-7140 to schedule collection for regular Monday brush collection.

Please note: There will be no brush collection the week of January 21 due to Martin Luther King Jr. Day.
