EMS drive

Hughestown Hose Company EMS Division is reaching out to local residents for their financial support.

With an EMS membership, Hughestown Hose Company’s EMS Division is providing you with a 60% discount for any remaining expenses incurred after insurance billing. This discount should prevent you from paying large, out-of-pocket expenses in the event of a medical emergency. The hose company has worked closely with many of their mutual aid ambulance providers to include them in your subscription drive too.

Please take a minute and complete the donation stub you recently received in the mail and return your membership form and payment to the Hughestown Hose Company no later than March 31 to secure your membership.

Keep your membership receipt for your records, as this identifies you as a subscriber. Remember, your EMS membership covers not just you, but also your family and any of your guests in the event of a medical emergency.

Recycling change

Beginning in April, no glass will be accepted with recycling. If there are glass items in the bins, the bin will not be picked up. This change is due to the recycling center no longer accepting glass.

Newspaper and cardboard are collected Monday. Tuesday is glass and plastic collection and Wednesday is ash.

Council reminds residents styrofoam is not allowed with recycling. Instead, it should be included with garbage.

No shredded paper or plastic bags should be included in recycling. Shredded paper should be included with your regular garbage.

There is a 30-pound limit on all bins, including ashes. Boxes for recycling must be broken down and newspapers go in a brown bag or in a bin to be picked up. All recyclables must be clean and rinsed and jars must be empty.
