The dumpsters are emptied each Thursday between 7:00 am and 1:00 pm. To prevent overflowing, collapse large boxes before placing in dumpsters. If a dumpster is full, find another available dumpster nearby. Keep top lids and side doors closed to prevent spillage and to keep wildlife away. Consider using one of the recycle bins for cardboard, newsprint, etc.
Do not attempt to place discarded appliances, furniture, mattresses or carpeting in the dumpsters. Contact the Condominium Office, at (412) 276-5100, to arrange for maintenance employees (also known as “Helping Hands”) to come directly to your home to remove any items NOT permitted in the dumpsters, for a small fee. Violators will be fined for misuse of the dumpsters.
Construction materials are not to be placed in dumpsters. This includes, but is not limited to drywall, carpeting, sinks, counter tops, stone, concrete, wood, paint cans, etc. Contractors will be fined, in addition the resident owner! This is not only a Borough violation but a State DEP violation with large fines.
The dumpsters are for use by only the residents of the Borough of Pennsbury Village who have paid their refuse fees. Use by any non-resident will result in an arrest and charges filed for theft of services.
