Residents are reminded not to block catch basins in order to minimize flooding. Only leaves will be collected – piles with debris other than leaves cannot be collected because of restrictions placed on the Borough.

The Borough Code Enforcement Office will be canvassing the town to ensure compliance with Borough Ordinance for the safety and cleanliness of the roads and waterways.

After these dates, summons will be issued for piles placed at the curb in violation of the ordinances.
