Garbage/Recycling –Garbage collection is every Friday.  Recycling will be on Jan. 18th, as well as February 1st & 15th Garbage/recycling containers are to be placed on the resident’s property at the curb line and are not to be placed before 2 P.M. on the day before pickup.

Pen Argyl Borough PWD would like to offer this advice to those who must travel during winter storms-

Carry a winter emergency travel kit. Listen to weather and travel advisories, and if you don’t have to         travel in bad weather, don’t. Keep your gas tank at least half full. Slow down and increase following distance.

Avoid sudden stops and starts. Beware of roads that may look wet, but are actually frozen, often referred to as “black ice.” Use extra caution on bridges and ramps where ice can often form without warning. Carry a cell phone. Do not use cruise control while driving on snow-covered roads. State law requires you to turn on your headlights when your wipers are on. Use your low beams in bad weather, especially in cases of heavy or blowing snow. Remove ice and snow from windows, mirrors and all vehicle lights as often as needed.

Snow removal – Residents are reminded that they are not to shovel or blow snow into the street.  Also, residents are asked to shovel snow away from any fire hydrant.
