Garbage on Curbside – Keep Our Neighborhoods Clean and Don’t Feed the Bears
Borough Code states that garbage cannot be brought to the curb earlier than 3:00 PM the day preceding the collection date. Residents are encouraged to place trash at the curb on the morning that the trash is being collected, but no later than 6:00 AM. Curbside garbage left overnight attracts bears and other wild animals.
