Recycling

Republic is the current Borough recycler.

Recycling cans are provided to new residents, free of charge. Replacement or additional cans are available at a cost of $5.00 each.

Reporting Street Light Problems

To report a street light problem, call the Borough office at (215) 752-5835.
One of the most important items needed when reporting a problem is the Pole Number. If you are unable to locate the pole number, please provide the nearest house address. This information is required to locate the exact pole with the problem. It is difficult to find a street light that does not function during the day when the lights are not on.
