24-hr Limit for Trash Cans

At its regular monthly meeting on November 8, Borough Council adopted a new ordinance regulating the length of time garage cans and other trash bins can be left at the curb. Residents have a 24-hour window to put containers out for collection and retrieve them. In any case, the containers must be off the curb within 12 hours of collection.

Following is an abbreviated version of the ordinance. A complete copy of the ordinance is available in the Borough Office:

Containers or receptacles used for trash, refuse, rubbish or recyclables disposal shall be placed for collection on the resident’s property or the tree lawn, if any, adjacent to the resident’s property and not more than ten (10) feet from the side of the streets or alley from which collection is made. Containers shall be removed within twelve (12) hours after collection is made. No refuse, garbage, rubbish, recyclables and/or ashes may be placed for collection for longer than twenty-four (24) hours prior to the scheduled collection date.

West Pittston Borough or its agent or subcontractor for trash or recycling collection may discontinue or refuse collection services to any person, whether as principal, agent, or employee violating or assisting in violation of any provisions of this ordinance. Any person, whether as principal, agent or employee violating or assisting in violation of any provision of this ordinance shall, upon conviction thereof before a District Magistrate pay a fine of not less than twenty-five ($25) dollars and not more than three hundred ($300) dollars.
