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 Announces
Spring Street Sweeping Program
As the spring season quickly approaches, the Dallas Borough Road Department has begun our annual Spring Street Sweeping.
The Road Department requests that Borough residents follow a few simple instructions to assist the Road Department staff in the collection of road cinders and materials deposited throughout the winter driving season.
· Rake cinders out to the side of the road in even layers and avoid large piles. Under no circumstances should cinders be swept into the stormwater catch basins.
· Do NOT fill containers with cinders in excess of 20-25 pounds. Heavy containers will not be picked-up.
· Do NOT include rocks, tree limbs, yard or animal waste with the street cinders.
After the street sweeper has been to your street once, any remaining cinders must be placed in containers for pick up.
Questions pertaining to this announcement should be directed to the Dallas Borough Administrative Office at 570-675-1389.

Dallas Borough held the annual Easter Egg Hunt this past Saturday, March 28, 2015 at the Kenneth Young Memorial Park on Burndale Ave. There were approximately 50 children in attendance despite the cold day. The Easter Bunny arrived by Fire Truck to greet the children. Children played games, had their faces painted and hunted for candy filled eggs, including a few golden eggs to win a special prize. All children participating took home prizes.
A special thank you to all the volunteers who made this day a success. Misercordia University Students, Dallas Road Department Employees and Back Mountain Regional Fire and EMS for providing the Fire Truck.
