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.
