The Streets Department recently replaced some of the older small metal street signs in part of the Borough with new green street signs to bring them into compliance with pending regulations regarding retro-reflectivity.  As a result a very limited supply of the old signs are available at the Borough Office.  The old signs are available, for a nominal donation, on a first come first serve basis and cannot be reserved.  Below is a listing of available signs as of 10:00 a.m. March 25, 2015:
Clay Street, Delaware Avenue, East Street, Eastwood Drive, Eaton Drive, Grant Street,  Liberty Street, Maroon Drive, Niagara Street, North Pearl Street,  Orchard Beach Drive, Pershing Avenue,  Skellie Drive and Vine Street. 


Garbage Pickup:

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 recycling and/or e-cycling at the curb are the same as for garbage.
Snow Removal:
It is prohibited to deposit snow and ice removed from private property upon the sidewalks and streets of the Borough located within the public right-of-way.

Failure to Remove Snow and Ice from Sidewalks:
Accumulations of snow and ice are required to be removed by the owner or occupant of property abutting sidewalks within twelve hours of the deposit of snow or ice by natural or artificial means.

Leaf, Brush & Grass Collection:
The Streets Department staff asks that you do 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.  Thank you for your cooperation.

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.



Borough Code Enforcement reminds residents 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. 

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.

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

Online Bill Payment
North East Borough residents and/or business owners now have the option to pay water/sewer/garbage bills online.  eNETPAY is a secure electronic payment processing system that accepts Visa, MasterCard, Discover, American Express or Electronic Check via the internet 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.  A convenience fee will be paid to eNETPAY by those who opt to utilize this service; this fee will be added to the payment amount.  You will be given an opportunity to accept or decline the payment after the total amount is calculated.

If you are making a payment because you have received a shut-off notice or if your water service has been terminated, please contact the Borough Office at (814) 725-8611 prior to or immediately after processing your payment.

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.

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.

2015 Dog Licenses are available at the Borough Hall.
