2016 FALL LEAF COLLECTION

Written by sitecats on . Posted in Front Page

fall-clip-art-autumn-clip-art-leaves-clip-art-clipart-2-image-2   Spot Collections scheduled to begin the week of DECEMBER 5th  fall-leaves

Due to heavy winds the past few weeks the Borough will be doing a spot check collection of leaves. They will start this after the last scheduled collection of leaves on the East side. The spot check collection will start on or about the 5th of December.

Rake your leaves to the curb line of the street for collection by the Borough. Please note that the Borough will not collect leaves in alleys. Leaves are collected through vacuum equipment and disposed at a recycling facility. Please keep in mind that we cannot pick up piles of leaves with excessive quantities of sticks, stones, hedge clippings, plant materials, and other trash. These items will damage or clog the equipment or jeopardize our ability to dispose of the load at the recycling facility.

Collections will alternate each week between east and west sections of the Borough. Rake your leaves out to the street by the beginning of the scheduled collection week; remember that once the crew has passed your street they will not return until the next scheduled collection time.

Why did my Trash/ Recycling not get picked up?

  • The most common reason your trash or recycling didn’t get picked up is that the cans aren’t to the edge of the Property. JP Mascaro will not come on to your property to get the cans. Cans need to be moved from next to the garage to edge of property. If in an alley cans should be at end of parking area where alley meets parking area. Also JP Mascaro will not return the cans back on to your property they will put them back on the edge of the property.
  • Second most common reason that your cans aren’t getting picked up is because they are blocked. Please make sure that your car isn’t blocking your cans.
  • One reasons that your Trash is picked up and not your Recycling would be: you have non recyclable items in your recycling can. Please review the list of recyclable items below.
  • JP Mascaro has been putting Notice of Non-Compliance for curbside collection notices on your cans if they find issues. Please review the notice and make the changes needed to comply so that they will continue to pick up your trash/recycling. Click here to see a copy of the Notice of Non-Compliance

When will I get my bill? And who will be billing me?

  • The bills will be mailed quarterly. Just like the sewer bills, trash service bills are payable to Souderton Borough.
  • Payments can be made in person or by mail. Payments can be made by cash, check or credit card.
  • When paying by check Sewer payments and Trash payments must be paid on two separate checks.
  • Souderton Borough prefers both Trash and Sewer services mailing to go to the property owner or property manager.  If you are a property owner and request to have a utility bill mailed to the occupant of your property you must understand regardless of who resides at your property the owner of the property will always be responsible for unpaid invoices.

  • No more than 4 bags can be placed out on the curb per week. Please note: If one or more bags will be going to the curb per week, it may be more cost effective to go with the Standard Weekly Service Trash Recycling Tote Service.

  • If you have 4 units in your building you will receive 1 set of totes per unit. Four recycle totes and four trash totes.
  • If you have a multi unit building please call our office 215-723-4371

  • If you move in in the middle of a quarter if the seller already paid for full quarter you will pay them for the rest of your quarter, we will not be prorating the bills. If there is a outstanding Balance you will have to get that amount from Seller at settlement for their part of that quarter.
