Ordinance No. 550
On April 17, 2018 Edgeworth Borough Council unanimously passed Ordinance No. 550 amending the Borough of Edgeworth Code Chapter 121 – Vehicle Operation and Storage, to Restrict Storage of Roll-Off Dumpsters, Storage Containers and Hours of Operation for Contractor Work. This Ordinance discusses screening requirements and permitted areas for temporary placement of storage units and roll-off dumpsters. The Ordinance also changes contractor work hours on Fridays and Saturdays, allowing work to be conducted from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Contractors may continue to work from 7:00 a.m. to 8:00 p.m. Monday through Thursday.

Leaf Compost Facility
As spring approaches and gardens and yards are prepared for the coming months, we would like to remind residents that the Borough has an abundance of leaf compost available. Edgeworth has a supply of leaf compost that has decomposed into rich, black soil conditioner. Many residents use this compost for summertime projects. If you are interested in the compost there will be a stockpile available at the Edgeworth recycle center. If using the compost located at the Recycle Center, residents must retrieve and unload the compost themselves.
Edgeworth Borough is proud to announce that it has been recognized by the Allegheny League of Municipalities (ALOM) as a Banner Community and by Sustainable Pennsylvania as a Silver Certified Community. Both awards recognize Edgeworth’s high level of resident services, prudent fiscal management, compliance with state and federal guidelines, environmental awareness and efforts to foster sustainable practices at the local level. More information regarding both organizations can be found by clicking the images below.
