2018 Spring Cleanup

Dallas Borough Announces 2018

Spring Cleanup Schedule and Regulations


Dallas Borough Council has announced the schedule for the annual spring cleanup to be held this year May 7th to May 12th at the Dallas Borough Municipal Building, 25 Main Street, Dallas. The hours of operation will be from 7:30 A.M. to 6 P.M. Monday through Friday and 8:00 A.M. to 3:00 P.M. on Saturday. Spring cleanup is only available to Dallas Borough residents.

Regulations will be enforced for the 2018 spring cleanup. Dallas Borough will require all residents to obtain an admission permit for the cleanup and the following fee schedule will be implemented:

  • Cars, small SUV’s, midsize SUV’s and mini-vans will require a $10 permit (unlimited entry).
  • Small pick-up trucks and full-size/large SUV’s will require a $15 permit (one trip per permit / three permit maximum).
  • Full size pick-up trucks, utility trailers and cargo vans of less than one ton will require $25 permit (one trip per permit / three permit maximum).
  • Large vehicles over one ton will require a $90 permit (one trip per permit/ one permit maximum).


Proof of residency such as a tax bill or driver’s license will be required to purchase the necessary permit. Admission permits will be issued to the occupants, not owners of Dallas Borough rental units.

In an effort to avoid delays at the drop off site during cleanup week, residents are asked to pre-purchase their permits during Borough office hours Monday through Friday from 9:00 A.M. to 4:00 P.M. at the Dallas Borough Municipal Building. No refunds will be issued.

Residents are reminded that the Borough will not accept household garbage, recyclables including yard waste, toxic or hazardous materials, asbestos, large construction debris, paint/paint cans, batteries, electronics and ashes.

The Borough will accept a limited number of non-commercial vehicle tires at a fee of $3 for each tire.

Bulky furniture items and large appliances require an additional fee of $5.00 per item. All refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers MUST HAVE DOCUMENTATION that all Freon and other gases have been removed.

ACCEPTANCE OR REJECTION OF ANY ITEMS is at the discretion of the Dallas Borough Road Department personnel and Dallas Borough administration.

Questions about spring cleanup should be directed to the Dallas Borough Administrative Office at 570-675-1389.


Mayor Timothy J. Carroll and Police Chief James Drury announce there will be increased police presence and traffic enforcement of the regulatory traffic signs in the construction areas in Dallas Borough.

Motorists disregarding traffic signs put themselves, their passengers, the public and the roadway contractors at risk.

Please respect our community by obeying all regulatory traffic signs.
