I guess the last day of their contract Republic figured they didn't have to. Please put it out next Wednesday for the city to take it

My tan yard waste can wasn't picked up when they took the trash and recycling cans....

No one picked up my Christmas tree. They just took the trash and recycling. Will they be coming back out to pick up the Christmas tree at a different time?

Let's Talk Trash! We knew the transition of trash haulers would not go without some issues. There have been many changes beyond our control that we simply could not communicate. The new containers are being delivered now. Here's what you need to know. Use the blue republic containers until Republic takes them OR it's the new year. Republic is not allowed to go onto your property to take them so leave them out this Wednesday. The new trash containers are all black, recycling containers are black with a blue lid and yard waste containers are brown ... See MoreSee Less

Thank you! I had forgotten when we needed to stop using the old ones

Are they picking up the old one?

Does anyone know if the yard waste containers will be like the old schedule? One pick up the last trash day of the month or can you put them out every week. Also, I saw no mention of putting out large items.

When would they start picking up trash?

What’s the name of the trash pick up they didn’t take our trash today?

Good morning and happy Friday Penbrook! I hope everyone faired well with the first significant snowfall of the season. A few items worth noting:
The Snow Emergency is now lifted. Our crews worked all night and were able to clear our streets thanks to their tireless work and your support.
A reminder that you cannot put snow from your sidewalk and property onto the street!
Thank you for doing your part to keep our streets and sidewalks as safe as possible.

Sure they did fantastic like every time it snow your trucks always block the only driveway I have, I am disappointed and disgusted by the poor response, I clean my only driveway with difficulty due to my disability and you guys can't never respond when I call for help,I am paying taxes for what? This town is a disgrace.

Crew did GREAT! Often goes unnoticed & not appreciated

A.After a snow emergency is declared, and during the twenty-four (24) hours following the declared snow emergency, parking shall be temporarily prohibited in the Citizens Fire Co. #1 of Penbrook lot, the Penbrook Police Department lot and Borough Offices parking areas, as well as at designated Central Dauphin School bus stops, so that immediate removal of snow and ice maybe effectuated, and such parking prohibition shall remain in effect until snow and ice removal is completed.

B.Twenty-four (24) hours after a snow and ice emergency has been declared, parking shall be regulated on all Borough streets for the purpose of clearing snow and ice as follows:

(1)Parking shall be prohibited on the odd numbered side of all Borough streets for the purposes of plowing, salting and/or cindering for a duration of twenty-four (24) hours on those odd numbered days.

(2)The day after the odd numbered side of the street has been plowed and/or ice removed, parking shall be prohibited on the even numbered side of all Borough streets for the purposes of plowing, salting and/or cindering for a duration of twenty-four (24) hours.

(3)This odd/even non-parking regulation shall remain in effect until all Borough streets have been plowed, salted and/or cindered, as necessary.

C.Once all Borough streets have been cleared of snow and ice, the Highway Department, in consultation with the Borough Manager, will assess the need for the removal of accumulated snow piles and drifts at intersections or other locations of snow emergency routes and Borough streets, and to remove/ relocate the hazardous snow piles to a safer location or to the designated dumping areas in the Borough.

D. No resident or other person may "save a parking space" by placing any object in the street to block lawful parking on the street.
