Summit Hill has announced what residents should expect with their garbage collection in 2021.
In a letter from Council Chairman Michael Kokinda and Sanitary Committee Chairman David Wargo, there are some changes to garbage collection, but many of the same procedures will still exist.
The new rubbish collection company, County Waste, will start on January 1st and pick up rubbish in town on Thursdays. Alternative collection days for public holidays will be announced prior to the public holiday.
There will be no recycling collection, but this will be re-evaluated after one year. Recycling should be disposed of with garbage.
Residents’ trash bills are cut to $ 195 a year, but there are no email or early bird discounts.
The timeframe for placing garbage on the curb is a maximum of 24 hours before collection.
The rubbish must be disposed of in suitable containers that the residents should provide. County Waste does not provide trash cans. Only five bags weighing no more than 50 pounds per bag will be picked up. This includes ashes that need to be put in ashtrays or buckets.
One bulk material may be disposed of in the garbage per week, but no building or building materials are removed.
The clean-up work in autumn and spring, as well as the day of electronics recycling, will continue as in the past.
If you are a commercial company that uses the home haulage company, you must follow these guidelines or demonstrate a commercial contract with a legitimate plumbing company to be exempt from garbage collection.
If you have any questions, please contact the district office at 570-645-2305 or speak to a councilor.
