Back to school has had a bumpy start. Between mold and the extreme heat several of our local schools had to call it a day yesterday! Despite that, school is back in session and the first day of fall (September 22) is approaching. With fall comes football, apples, changing leaves, sweaters and...fall cleanup!
If you're doing some fall cleanup the county is accepting items the week of September 10 at: Branch Township, Commonwealth Environmental Systems Landfill, Mahanoy Township, North Manheim Township, Pine Grove Township, Pottsville, Ringtown and Schuylkill Haven. During the week of September 17 it will be: Girardville, Hegins Township, Minersville, New Ringgold, Porter Township, Tamaqua Transfer Station, Tremont and Wayne Township. Please bring proof of county residency or item will not be accepted. ***As they become available specific times and places will be added to this post.
So what can you clean up?
Take this opportunity to correctly get rid of that junk that's been gathering in your basement or garage. Happy Fall!
