The month-to-month scheduling of recycling pick-up throughout the Borough continues with no changes in June.

Recycling will be on the every other week on Tuesday for the west side of town and Wednesday on the east side of town. Vegetative waste will be picked up weekly on Thursdays east of Chestnut Street and on Fridays west of Chestnut Street.

The reason for the monthly scheduling is due to on-going litigation with ERS (Equipment Rental Services) and the municipality. The recycling provider had their contract terminated by the governing body when the municipality determined, due to several complaints from residents (some of whom took pictures), that the contractor failed to meet the requirements set forth in the recycling contract. The termination took effect on August 1st of last year. Currently, recycling is not being picked up by ERS.
