Dallas Borough Road Department will begin weekly curbside yard waste collection beginning the week of May 14, 2019, weather permitting. Residents are asked not to place yard waste recycling containers curbside prior to the beginning of the collection season.
The Borough Road Department will collect up to the equivalent of two 25 gallon recycling containers weekly throughout the season. Residents are to have yard waste containers curbside by TUESDAY morning for collection. Yard waste volumes exceeding the two 25 gallon container limit will not be collected. Yard waste containing or including rocks, road cinders, ashes or animal waste will not be collected. In the interest of public safety, residents are reminded not to place containers or bundled yard waste within the road right of way.
THERE IS A $25.00 ANNUAL PERMIT REQUIRED FOR RESIDENTS TO PARTICIPATE IN THE CURBSIDE YARD WASTE COLLECTION PROGRAM. RESIDENTS MAY STOP IN THE DALLAS BOROUGH BUILDING DURING NORMAL BUSINESS HOURS, MONDAY THROUGH FRIDAY FROM 9:00 AM TO 4:00 PM TO OBTAIN THE REQUIRED PERMIT.
Property owners with a larger volume of yard waste are asked to make arrangements with a private hauler and/or to contact the Dallas Area Municipal Authority at (570) 696-1133 for the hours of operation for the yard waste drop off site on S.R. 118.
