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. ... See MoreSee Less
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
Penbrook Borough Offices will be closed starting today at 12:30pm and because of the snow emergency we will advise when we re-open. Staff will be available by telephone or email. The dropbox is here but please stay off the streets if at all possible. Thank you. ... See MoreSee Less
