Pennsylvania Primary Election Update
Due to concerns over the COVID-19 virus, the Pennsylvania Primary Election date for state and federal offices has been moved to June 2, 2020. All residents will cast their ballots at Edgeworth Elementary School. For more information about voting, mail-in ballots, and voter registration, please visit www.votespa.com.
Please note: Waste Management will be limiting non-essential services during this time. All trash/refuse must be bagged and sealed, and loose items will not be collected. Any material left outside of a bin will not be collected. Waste Management is also suspending bulk collection at this time. We will update you when these non-essential restrictions have been lifted.
Remember: Stay home, wash your hands, and limit contact with others as much as possible. Be sure to practice social distancing while outside, or in public places such as grocery stores.
After reviewing federal, state and county recommendations surrounding the COVID-19 virus, Edgeworth Borough is implementing the following measures in order to protect employees and residents:
- The administrative office is still open during normal business hours between 8 am and 4 pm. At this time, we are asking all residents who need to contact us to do so by phone and email. If you must come to the Borough Building in person, we ask that you call or email to make an appointment and we are limiting public access to the building and common areas.
- Edgeworth police will respond to non-emergency calls via phone. If you are experiencing an emergency, please call 911. Police will continue patrols as normal.
On January 1, 2020, Waste Management implemented numerous changes to acceptable recyclable materials. From now on, only plastic bottles, jugs, and jars labeled #1 and #2, as well as cardboard, mixed paper, aluminum, and tin are accepted in residents’ recycling cans. No plastic bags, glass, other plastic materials, or Styrofoam are allowed in single stream recycling. The same material restrictions apply to the Recycling Center located on Chestnut Road. Beginning on April 1, 2020, Waste Management drivers will begin rejecting recycling cans that contain non-recyclable items. In order to properly recycle glass bottles, jugs, and jars, residents may utilize the glass-only dumpster located at the Recycling Center. Please keep these changes in mind when collecting your recyclables each week, and help us to recycle properly!
The Borough of Edgeworth recently hosted a Recycling Information Session. Erika Deyarmin-Young, Public Affairs Coordinator for Waste Management, and Nancy Martin, Education Specialist for Pennsylvania Resources Council, presented attendees with information on what is allowed in curbside recycling, how to reduce waste that ends up in a landfill, and recycling resources across the area. Check out their presentations here and here if you missed the event or would like to learn more!
