Recycling Reminder

A reminder to residents that the Borough Code, Chapter 20, requires mandatory recycling for all residents through Twin Boroughs Recycling.  Residential trash haulers are not permitted to pick-up recycling.  Recycling becomes the property of the Borough when it is placed curbside. 

Residential Trash Haulers have been notified of this Ordinance, and enforcement will begin this winter.  We ask your assistance by placing your recycling curbside for Twin Boroughs Recycling pick-up.  Information on Twin Boroughs Recycling and the recycling pick-up schedule is available under the “Trash & Recycling” Tab or by clicking here.

Was your property damaged in the flooding due to Hurricane Henri?

Monroe County is pursuing a Small Business Administration (SBA) Declaration that will provide low-interest loans through the SBA to both residents and business owners for repairs to properties.

If you are interested in this program, please fill out one of the attached forms – there is one for residences and one for businesses – and return to Borough Manager Larry Kopp.  These forms are to assess the need for a declaration; this is not a contract and you are not agreeing to a loan.

As of now there is no deadline for submission, but we encourage you to get the form to back to the Borough as quickly as possible.
