A note from Bob Frey Disposal

Due to difficulty in lifting larger garbage cans, you will either need to downsize to a smaller can or place garbage in individual bags for easier removal from a larger can.  The Borough contract indicates a 33 gallon maximum garbage can per customer per pick up.

If you have any questions on this matter, feel free to call Bob Frey at 570-412-6842.  If you contact the Borough office, we will refer you to Bob Frey.
