  2. NO TIRES (new rules from state: only certain stickered vehicles allowed to take tires, this is not a Borough rule).
  3. NO ELECTRONICS such as computers, printers, TVs, etc.
  4. NO WOOD such as remodeling materials unless cut into short lengths and bundled so that ONE person may pick up. NO WHOLE BUILDINGS.
  5. GRASS AND LEAVES: If you have leaves from yard cleanup, place the leaves and grass cuttings in a separate container-bags, etc. IF STONES, ROCKS, STICKS are mixed in with grass and leaves, they will not be picked up.
  6. BRUSH MUST BE CUT OR BROKEN INTO SMALL PIECES WHICH MAY BE EASILY HANDLED.

Refrigerators, freezers, air-conditioning units will be billed at $5.00 each due to regulations at landfill.

If requirements are not met, free removal will not be available to you.
