2016 Yard Waste Curbside Recycling

Schedule and Regulations

 

The Dallas Borough Road Department will begin weekly curbside yard waste collection beginning the week of May 9, 2016 weather permitting.  The weekly collection schedule will begin following the conclusion of the Dallas Borough Spring Cleanup scheduled for the week of May 2-7, 2016.  Residents are asked not to place yard waste recycling containers curbside prior to the beginning of the collection season. 

 

As in previous years the Borough Road Department will collect up to the equivalent of two 25 gallon recycling containers weekly throughout the season.  Residents are to have yard waste containers curbside by Monday morning for collection.  Yard waste volumes exceeding the two 25 gallon container limit will not be collected.  Yard waste containing or including rocks, road cinders, ashes or animal waste will not be collected.  In the interest of public safety, residents are reminded not to place containers or bundled yard waste within the road right of way. 

 

 

There is a $25 annual permit required for residents to participate in the curbside yard waste collection program.  Residents may stop in the Dallas Borough Building during normal business hours, Monday through Friday from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm to obtain the required permit.

 

 

Property owners with a larger volume of yard waste are asked to make arrangements with a private hauler and/or to contact the Dallas Area Municipal Authority at 570-696-1133 for yard waste drop off site locations.  

 

Dallas Borough is proud of the curbside collection yard waste recycling program in cooperation with the Dallas Area Municipal Authority and we look forward to providing this important service to our residents throughout the summer season.  Please call the Dallas Borough Administrative Office at 570-675-1389 with any questions pertaining to the curbside yard waste recycling program.
