From the Mayor's Desk
Dear Fellow Residents,
As your proud Mayor, I am pleased to announce our efforts to increase awareness about the importance of recycling and opportunities to recycle which are essential for a successful recycling program and a green community. We are pleased to provide additional recycling services for the residents and we encourage the residents to take advantage of these expanded recycling services provided by the town.
Mayors Green Community Clean-Up Project
A street sweeper will clean the entire town on Saturdays during the month of May. Do remember if there are heavy amounts of sand/dirt in the street, please assist us by cleaning up any remaining portion.
A Dumpster will be available at the Borough Hall for drop off concrete only during the month of June.
We are asking any resident whose property backs up to the wooded ravine to remove any trash, metal, concrete and drop off at the Borough Hall Dumpsters. If you have any bottles, cans etc. please put them in your own recycling bucket for weekly pickup. In addition, any branches can be put out to the curb for pickup by our Public works Dept.
