National Night Out will be back in the Borough on Tuesday, August 3, 2021. Stayed tune for further details.
Please see the following important list of things that should not be placed into the sewer system either via your toilets or sink drains. One thing that’s not on the list and we’ve encountered are Swiffer cleaning pads. Any of the items on the list can cause lift station pumps to clog which has happened recently. Flushable wipes are also not something that should be flushed regardless of the marketing of the product.
Please be diligent and throw away anything on this list.
The Chester County Commissioners unveiled the results of Return on Environment, a new study quantifying the economic value of protected open space in Chester County. The report found that 86 percent of homes in Chester County are located within a half-mile of protected open space, and that these homes derive an average of $11,000 in additional value because of their proximity to open space. Without the support of municipal leaders, this widespread success in open space preservation would not be possible. Click on the below link that highlights the findings of this study.

Beginning the week of October 19th, we will begin to reject improperly presented recyclables to avoid possible new charges from SECCRA if we do not keep our stream of recycling materials clean. We need everybody’s help to accomplish this.
No Plastic Bags
SECCRA, where the recyclables we collect are processed, will no longer accept recycling in plastic bags — no trash bags or retailer bags. These bags clog the processing machines and are THE number one contaiminate in the recycling process. Single use retailer bags should be saved and recycled at your retailer of choice. Giant and Lowe’s both have collection boxes at their entrances.
No Pizza Boxes
SECCRA will not accept pizza boxes.
