Upcoming Ordinance update - Council will discuss on January 19

--Parking Vehicles and Traffic Ordinance Amendment

(this ordinance includes parking, signs, and streets)

--Tax Collector Ordinance Amendment

NEW TRASH SERVICE will begin THURSDAY, February 4, 2021

Waste Management will collect their Waste Management containers either the last week of January or the first week of February.  We will advise closer to the transition.  The last week to use their trash and recycle containers is for pick up on Wednesday, January 27th.    

   Each Property Owner should have received a letter and submitted their requested Trash Container size(s).  Additionally, an automated phone call was sent as a reminder.  If you haven't submitted your request for a specific size container, you will receive the Standard Size (same as the current container). 

As the letter states, service by Harrisburg will begin on Thursday, February 4, 2021.  All Recycling toters/carts will be standard 65 gallons (which is the size of our current "trash containers").  You will still be permitted to place out one large item a week as under our current contract. 

Please note, generally speaking, the trash that is not in a "Paxtang Borough" Container will not be picked up.  You will have the option to purchase additional Paxtang Borough Trash Containers at a discounted price.
