Riff-raff Week

05.19.2016  |  Email This Post   |  Print This Post

Riff-raff that regular customers wish removed from their properties will be picked up at the CURB only. There will be no charge for this extra pickup service. The refuse crew will begin pickup at 5:00 a.m. so be sure to have your items out the night before after 6:00 p.m. The riff-raff pickup will follow the same routes and schedules as the regular refuse collection service, with one pickup truck-size load limit per customer. The refuse crew will not make extra trips to an address. Tires, batteries, items too heavy for two men to handle, construction material, paint cans and hazardous waste cannot be picked up during riff-raff. Residents are not to use cardboard boxes for items if it is raining or it is calling for rain as it makes it difficult for the refuse crew to pick up the boxes without them falling apart. The Borough reserves the right to not collect if there is too much or it is too heavy.

Ash Collection/Brush and Grass Collection/Landfill

03.21.2016  |  Email This Post   |  Print This Post

The last day for ash collection on Wednesdays will be March 30, 2016. Thereafter, place your cooled ashes out with your regular trash for pickup.

Due to the overwhelming response to the brush and grass collection service, for the 2016 season Bellefonte Borough will begin picking up both the brush and grass containers at the same time. Collection will start April 6, 2016. This will allow for more efficiency while also allowing us to continue recycling the material and meet an ever increasing demand. We will continue to strive to further the recycling program.

Please be sure to put the brush and grass container(s) out Tuesday evening after 6:00 p.m. to avoid being missed on Wednesday. If the containers are not out when the crew arrives, they will pick them up the following Wednesday.

The first Saturday the landfill is open for the season is April 2, 2016. The hours are 8:00 a.m. until noon.

Thank you for your cooperation.
