All residential refuse service is provided under a master contract with Bob Frey Disposal of Watsontown. The monthly refuse billing amount for a single residential unit is $10.50, which is included on the monthly electric bill. This cost is subject to change by vote of Borough Council. Bob Frey will provide twice weekly pick-up of a single, metal, 33 gallon can at each residence. Extra bags require stickers, which are available at the Borough office at a cost of $1.00 each.
Monday & Thursday – collection from all residences west of Conrail right-of-way (railroad tracks) within the Borough.
Tuesday & Friday – collection from all residences east of Conrail right-of-way (railroad tracks)within the Borough.
Pick-ups could begin in the early morning hours. Any questions should be directed to Bob Frey Disposal – 570-412-6842 or the Borough Office at 570-538-1000.
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.
