Trash Contract Bids
In February, Borough Council reluctantly approved a $.13 per dwelling unit/quarter or $.52 per dwelling unit/year additional charge in addition to the 2014 rate of $55.98 per quarter/$223.92 per year rates contracted late last year. This increase is considered a reasonable Pennsylvania Fuel Tax Surcharge to cover the new tax that the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania has imposed on every gallon of on-road diesel fuel sold effective January 1, 2014. The new quarterly rate should be $56.11. Please call Borough Hall at 610-287-7442 should you have any questions.
