West Wyoming yard waste collections

West Wyoming has resumed yard waste collection. Thursday, July 12, yard waste pickup will be from the Atherton section of the borough, up to, but not including, West Eighth Street. The following Thursday, July 19, pickup will be from West Eighth Street to the Exeter line. Yard waste collection will continue to alternate each week until Nov. 8.

Exeter collection reminders

Exeter Borough is now offering single stream recycling. All recyclable items can now be placed in the same container and can be placed out weekly. Pickup will still be Mondays.

A flyer is in the white rural mailbox in front of the borough building with a list of what can and cannot be put out. Everything on the calendar is still recyclable, with the exception of shredded paper, which will now go out with your regular garbage. Also, items are on the new list that were not picked up before.

Yard waste will still be collected Thursdays. Regular garbage is still collected Wednesdays.

Please do not use the yellow recycling bins for garbage. Place your bags in regular garbage cans. There is a three-bag limit no matter what size the bag is, as long as it is under 30 pounds. Don’t place several small bags in your can. Condense them into a larger bag.

Placing the garbage in a refuse container reduces the likelihood of an animal opening it. If animals do open your garbage, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to clean it up.

Refuse, recyclables and yard waste are to be placed curbside the night before pickup or by 6 a.m. the morning of collection.

For information, call Lynda at 570-654-3001, ext. 2 or Karen at 570-654-0933.
