Mayor Tom Grady

Posted: Friday, March 27, 2015

Join your friends and neighbors for a night out in Borough. Grab a friend or bring the family downtown to have dinner in one of our BYOBs or pubs. Shop the stores that stay open late, like Character Development, which always has a First Friday book special. Find some new treasures and have some wine and cheese at Nannygoat Antiques.

Mixed paper pickup

From the Borough: Effective January 1, 2003 the members of Borough Council expanded the newsprint recycling program to include not only newsprint but alsomagazines, catalogs, junk mail, telephone books, note books, and school papers (including spiral bound books) soft and hard back books and textbooks, shopping and pet food bags (without plastic liners), chipboard packaging, beer and soda cartons, cracker, cake, cereal boxes (without plasticpouches or insert) and corrugated boxes. NO PIZZA BOXES. These items are now referred to as “MIXED PAPER” collected curbside each Monday and designated by M on this calendar. MIXED PAPER must be tied and placed in brown Kraft-type paper bags and corrugated boxes must be flattened and securely tied together with string. INDIVIDUALS NOT SEPARATING “MIX PAPER” FROM THEIR TRASH MAY FIND THAT THEIR TRASH MAY BE DEEMED UNCOLLECTIBLE. Your cooperation in this program is appreciated. The program helps to save the environment and to save our tax dollars.
