Sewer and Refuse Billing

The Borough bills quarterly for sewer and refuse.  The Borough does not have it's own treatment plant.  Discharge is treated at the Swatara Township Wastewater Treatment plant. 

Republic Services is the Borough's contracted refuse hauler.  Refuse is picked up on Monday.  There is a six bag limit and one large item per week.  The Borough also recycles.  Recycling containers can be picked up at the Borough office for $10.00.

Bills are mailed out quarterly; January 1st, April 1st, July 1st and October 1st.  You can pay your bill online with a credit card.
