Exeter Borough now has single stream recycling. Recycling will still be collected Mondays. All recyclable items can now be placed in the same container and can be placed out weekly.
A flyer is in the white rural mailbox in front of the borough building with a list of what can and cannot be put out. Everything on the calendar is still recyclable, with the exception of shredded paper. The borough will no longer pick up shredded paper. Also, items are on the new list that weren’t picked up before.
Yard waste will still be collected Thursdays.
Regular garbage is still collected Wednesdays.
Please do not use the yellow recycling bins for garbage.
Place your bags in regular garbage cans. It is a three-bag limit no matter what size the bag is, as long as it is less than 30 pounds. Do not place several small bags in your garbage can. Condense them into a larger bag.
Placing the garbage in a refuse can reduces the likelihood of an animal opening it. If animals do open your garbage, it is the homeowner’s responsibility to clean it up.
Refuse, recyclables and yard waste are to be placed curbside the night before pick up or by 6 a.m. the morning of collection.
For information, call Lynda at 570-654-3001, ext. 2 or Karen at 570-654-0933.
LEGO Club at the library
The LEGO Club will meet from noon to 1 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 11. The program is free and suitable for children of all ages. Registration is required. Please call the library to reserve a spot.
