ANNOUNCEMENT: Last Yard Waste Pick-Up Scheduled
Monday, November 6, 2017 — Based on the prolonged nice weather delaying this year’s leaf season, Ellwood City Borough/Valley Waste Service will switch the final 2017 Yard Waste pickup week in Ellwood City from the week of 11/13/17 to the week of 11/27/17.
BOROUGH YARD WASTE PICK UP GUIDELINES: Green borough yard waste bins are also available for residents to dispose of their simple yard waste. Yard waste bins are available for purchase for $53.00 and can be purchased at the borough utility office or by calling 724-758-5576. Yard waste bins are collected on specified weeks throughout the calendar years. Dates are also provided on borough utility bills.
If a resident has extra yard waste that does not fit into a container, it is recommended that they bundle and tie branches together. The branch bundles can be no longer than 4 ft. and should be placed next to the container. For all other extra yard waste, residents may place these items in the brown biodegradable bags that may be purchased at the Borough Building or most hardware stores. Please do not place the items in plastic bags as the waste dump sites for yard waste materials will not accept these items.
