LEAF BAG PICK-UP
The Borough will only collect leaves in biodegradable paper
bags. Please refrain from putting rocks, sticks, plastic
bottles, etc. in the bags. These items will contaminate the
mulch. Do not close leaf bags with duct tape. Duct tape is
not biodegradable and must not be used. Please leave enough room
at the top of the bag so you can either fold or roll it closed.
Leaf bags are paper bio-degradable bags and can be purchased
at the municipal building (.40¢ each) or at any store. Bags should
be taken to the curb for pick-up. The leaf mulch will be available
at Blueberry Hill Park in the Spring.

STORM IS OVER...NOW LET'S WORK TOGETHER
Park Borough Public Works Department has the
responsibility of clearing municipal streets of snow and
ice from winter storms. Our aim is to provide residents
with the highest possible level of service therefore
providing a safe environment for vehicular and emergency
traffic. We take this responsibility very seriously!
The Borough's snow removal priorities are: heavy or
arterial roadways, followed by school bus routes,
neighborhood roads and finally cul-de-sacs.
During snowfalls the initial pass of the snow plow is to
open the road to traffic flow. Expect to have the snow
pushed back to the curb on a later pass. This is done to
provide more space to push away further snow and to
provide drainage when the snow melts, so that water runs
along the side of the road and not in the cart way where
it may refreeze as temperatures drop. Remember that snow
plows cannot pick up and carry snow, so snow is placed to
create the least amount of problems for motorists.
Ordinance No. 202-13 prohibits parking of vehicles on
Borough roads during periods or snowfall, ice accumulation
and inclement weather. Vehicles will be ticketed and
Do not shovel or plow snow from your driveway or walkway
into the street. Pile the snow in your yard.
Maintain and repair your mailbox posts. Mailboxes should
not extend past the face of the curb.
Snow must be removed from the sidewalk along your property
within a reasonable time but not later than 12 hours after
the cessation of snowfall.
If possible, place snow on the side of driveway opposite
the direction that the plow travels. By doing so the plow
will carry snow away from driveway rather than into it.
