The 2020 Census is Underway!
Have you completed the census for your household? Census information, gathered every ten years, is necessary to determine federal funding allocated to states and communities, representation in state and federal government, and is even used by businesses when deciding what communities to invest in. Currently, 68% of Edgeworth residents have responded to the census, and we hope to be the first community in the Quaker Valley to reach 100%! It is easier than ever to respond to the census, whether online, by mail, or over the phone. Please visit 2020census.gov or call 844-330-2020 for further information.

- The administrative office is still operating during normal business hours between 8 am and 4 pm. At this time, public access to the building is closed and 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.
- 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.
As always, please be sure to limit contact with others, wash your hands, and stay home when you are sick. Feel free to contact the Borough office at 412-741-2866 with any questions or concerns.
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. Mulching or composting grass clippings and yard waste is the best way to dispose of these organic materials. 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!
