We also still are using our recycling area  found at John Bosacco Park located at 101 Pine Street. At the present time, all aluminum, plastic, metal and glass is collected in the igloo provided. The green and yellow dumpsters hold paper recycling – this includes junk mail, school papers, newspapers, soft cover books, and cardboard.  

Are permits required for sidewalk replacement, roofs, decks, construction?
The Borough code officials will help you determine if permits are required. Generally speaking, any digging on your property (replacing sidewalks, repair of sewer lines), roof replacement or major work will require a permit.
