Latest News from the Borough
Last year 200+ volunteers prevented 13,720 pounds of trash from entering our waterways! Join in this year to help continue this 24-year-old tradition of keeping our streams and waterways clean! While there will not be a large organized event as in the past, everyone is encouraged to do their own smaller cleanup efforts during the week of May 3-9.

The Centre County Recycling & Refuse Authority (CCRRA) has announced that curbside recycling service will resume on Monday, April 27.
As curbside recycling starts back up again, please follow the guidelines below to keep collectors and residents safe:
- If someone in your household has been sick, is quarantined or has tested positive for COVID-19, please hold your recycling at home for one week before placing it at the curb.
- Protect yourself, your neighbors and our community. Do not place possibly contaminated items at the curb.
- Trash Guidelines: All trash should be bagged prior to being placed inside or next to your trash can. Bags should be tied or closed to prevent trash from falling out.
CCRRA would like to thank its customers for their patience during this temporary disruption of service. They look forward to your continued cooperation and participation.

Last evening Council approved postponing both the community-wide yard sale and the bulk waste collection scheduled for May. New dates have not been determined. Council will look at this toward the end of Summer with possible new dates for sometime in the Fall.
At the Council meeting held last evening, it was decided to close all playground areas (Talleyrand Park and Governor’s Park) due to the governor’s “Stay at Home” order regarding COVID-19. The closure will be in effect until the “Stay at Home” order is lifted for Centre County.
Centre County Recycling and Refuse Authority (CCRRA) has set up a six compartment drop off box at the Armory property where you can dispose of your recyclables until such time as CCRRA resumes collecting recyclables on your scheduled trash/recycling pickup day.
