HALLOWEEN

TRICK-OR-TREAT HOURS -- FRIDAY, OCTOBER 31st 6:00 - 8:00 p.m.

 

Garbage Pickup:

Twice-a-week garbage collection will end September 26, 2014.  If your garbage is normally collected either Monday or Thursday your garbage will be collected both Monday & Thursday.  If your garbage is normally collected either Tuesday or Friday your garbage will be collected both Tuesday and Friday.


The Streets Department would like to remind residents/businesses that during the months of March through October garbage may be placed at the curb for pickup no earlier than 6:00 p.m. the day before collection. The garbage crew starts at 7:00 a.m. so please make sure garbage is curbside by then. 
Please note: Borough Ordinance No. 859 prohibits using garbage cans/containers larger than 35 gallons.

Please note:  Times for placement of e-cycling at the curb are the same as for garbage. 

Leaf, Brush & Grass Collection:
The Streets Department staff asks that you not put your leaves, grass and brush in the same pile; place leaves and grass in one pile and brush in another.  Brush and/or sticks plug the equipment therefore piles have to be separated by Streets Department staff which causes delays. 

Yard Debris in the Street:
It is not permitted to place leaves, grass, brush or any other material in the streets of North East. Please place your yard debris on the berm.

Signs:

As yard sale season approaches, Borough Code Enforcement reminds residents planning a sale that they are not permitted to attach (with staple, nail, or by any other means) Yard Sale, For Sale, or any other sign to any poles or trees.  Signs are not permitted to be placed in the berm.  Residents holding a yard sale or garage sale may place signs on the inside yard area of their lawn but not in the berm (street side of the sidewalks). 
   
Questions should be directed to the North East Borough Streets Department (814-725-1315) Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. - they will be happy to assist you.

E-Cycling Collection Program

North East Borough is happy to announce that we have started a Covered Device E-Cycling Collection Program.  As of January 24, 2013, it became illegal for landfills and other solid waste disposal facilities in Pennsylvania to accept covered electronic devices or their components.  Act 108 of 2010 requires that these devices be RECYCLED.  We have a Covered Device E-Cycling Collection Program to help North East Borough residents dispose of  unwanted items.

E-Cycling will be collected the same day your normal recycling is collected.  We ask that you separate the E-Cycling material from your normal recycling and place them in two separate piles.  The same truck will collect both your normal recycling and your E-Cycling.

DOG LICENSES

Dog licenses can be ordered through the County of Erie's online dog license sales site (see link below).  State law requires all dogs three months and older to be licensed by January 1st of each year.
Lifetime licenses are available for dogs that have a microchip as a permanent identification.
Remember - the cost of a license is less than the penalty for being caught without one.  Owners who fail to license their dogs could face a fine of up to $300 for each unlicensed dog.

2014 Dog Licenses are now available at the Borough Hall.

  There is a payment box located behind the Borough Hall for your convenience.
