The following will be accepted:

  • Woody Waste materials (ex. sticks and branches)

  • Christmas Trees
  • Yard waste is not required to be bagged but, if you prefer to do so, Kraft bags can be purchased at the Borough Office or at the Milanof-Schock Library located at 1184 Anderson Ferry Road. There is a $0.50 charge per Kraft bag.
