Talking trash…

On May 22, 2018 Bernville Borough Council accepted the lowest bid, from Republic Services, for trash and recycling collection. The trash collection will go to year-round, once-a-week pick-up beginning

August 1, 2018. There will no longer be twice-a-week trash collection.  Recycling schedule remains the same.

The borough’s contract with Waste Management ends in July, and the borough bid out the services for garbage and recycling pick-up.  The new contract with Republic Services is a five-year contract.  Detailed information on the new program is attached to the Bernville Newsletter.  This includes a calendar with pick-up schedules and information regarding all of the bids.  Be sure to read all of the information, as some things—especially recycling measures—will change slightly.  Please note that residents may use their existing recycling bins.  As in the past, garbage cans and recycling bins may be placed at the curb no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the evening before a scheduled pick-up.
