Recycling is picked up curbside every Monday, or with the exception of when a holiday (such as New Year's Day, Memorial Day, July Fourth, Labor Day or Christmas) falls on a Monday; then pick up will be the following Tuesday. Borough employees do their best to get recycling picked up on Monday, however there are many factors that may prohibit them from doing so, such as leaf pickup, snow plowing, equipment breakdowns, and employee days off, so leave your bins curbside and they will eventually get picked up. 

Cardboard and paper, and co-mingled products, are picked up on alternating weeks, see Recycling Schedule below.  Please see the Borough Newsletter for specific guidelines.    

Recycle bins should be placed curbside no later than 6:00 a.m. on the day of pickup.  

Recycling guidelines are set by the Lackawanna Recycling Center. Please check the Borough's newsletter and Lackawanna County website for specific information on current accepted recyclable items.

The Borough accepts tires throughout the year; however you must call in advance to make arrangements to drop the tires off. There is a fee of $3.00 for automobile tires and $8.00 for truck tires. Tires must be off rims.


Borough employees will now pick up appliances (white goods) throughout the year. You must contact the Borough Office first to purchase a $15.00 sticker prior to placing the item curbside for pickup; do not leave these items on Borough property.
