Every week our streets, alleyways and parks are full of litter. The Borough provides trash cans at many corners and in the parks for residents and visitors to place their trash. You may not realize it, but it costs us over $17,000 a year to pick up the litter. These are funds and time can be better utilized with other aspects of borough upkeep.
Other things that can be done as residents at your own homes:
Place ALL trash in bags and place the bags in a can with a lid. Big’s (and other haulers) will not empty a can full of loose items from a can.
Ensure that there is NO LIQUID in your cans from items leaking or being filled with water. If necessary, drill a couple of small holes to let the water out but that will not allow rodents to enter.
Make sure your can is not too heavy. Cans should weigh no more than 35 pounds.
Place no more than ONE large item (mattress, appliance, chair, couch, etc.) out per week.
DO NOT put out construction materials, tires, electronics or other “hard to recycle” items
Bring your trash cans in on Thursday afternoon/evening.
Reduce your weekly trash by placing recyclable materials in the recycling bins at 506/516 Bessemer. Paper, cardboard, metal (cans) and plastic are accepted.
If you have an issue with your trash pickup please call Big’s directly at 724-379-4331.
