Stroudsburg in the New York Times!
Curbside recycling collection will now include the collection of tin/steel cans, i.e., soup cans, coffee cans, vegetable cans. KEEP ALUMINUM CANS AND TIN CANS SEPARATED.
Twin Boroughs Recycling Center will be providing bins from USAgain-“use it again” for the collection of the following items: Men’s, women’s and kid’s footwear and all clothing items, gloves, hats, belts, bags, purses, sheets, blankets, drapes and towels. USAgain is a green, for-profit company committed to protecting the environment, conserving resources and creating green sector jobs through the collection of textiles for reuse and recycling. The clothing is shipped to be given a new life by wholesalers, thrift store chains and textile recyclers. Non-reusable clothes are recycled into insulation, wiping rags, or are broken down to reclaim fiber.
Every time a bin gets full, USAgain plants one tree. The Twin Boroughs Recycling Program receives five-cents per pound from USAgain. Please make sure that the items that you are donating are in clean condition.
We have noted that there has been discussion on Facebook in regard to the cleanliness of Main Street and the adjoining sidewalks.
Please note that Chapter 21-261 states that, “All property owners, their tenants and lessees in the Borough of Stroudsburg shall have the duty to keep the sidewalks adjoining their properties free and clear of dirt, litter and debris.” Chapter 21-262 further states that this must be done, “…on or before 10:00 am each day of the week, excluding Sundays.”
Finally, 21-263 states that, “Such dirt, litter and debris shall not be placed on the cartway of any street in the Borough of Stroudsburg but instead shall be placed in a container… and disposed of in the same manner as he/she disposes of other waste materials, at the sole cost and expense of said property owner, his tenants, or lessees.”
On most day when the temperature is above 32 degrees Fahrenheit, the Borough is continuing to run our street sweeper throughout the winter months to keep the streets as clean as possible for residents and visitors.
We appreciate your help in keeping our streets, and sidewalks, clean.
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.
