Dallas Borough schedules spring cleanup for May 7-12


DALLAS — The borough council has announced the schedule for the annual spring cleanup to be held this year May 7-12 at the Dallas Borough Municipal Building, 25 Main St. The hours of operation will be from 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Saturday. Spring cleanup is only available to Dallas Borough residents.

Regulations will be enforced for the 2018 spring cleanup. Dallas Borough will require all residents to obtain an admission permit for the cleanup and the following fee schedule will be implemented:

Cars, small SUVs, midsize SUVs and mini-vans will require a $10 permit (unlimited entry).

Small pick-up trucks and full-size/large SUVs will require a $15 permit (one trip per permit/three permit maximum).

Full-size pickup trucks, utility trailers and cargo vans of less than one ton will require $25 permit (one trip per permit / three permit maximum).

Large vehicles over one ton will require a $90 permit (one trip per permit/one permit maximum).

Proof of residency such as a tax bill or driver’s license will be required to purchase the necessary permit. Admission permits will be issued to the occupants, not owners of Dallas Borough rental units.

In an effort to avoid delays at the drop-off site during cleanup week, residents are asked to pre-purchase their permits during borough office hours Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Dallas Borough Municipal Building. No refunds will be issued.

Residents are reminded that the borough will not accept household garbage, recyclables including yard waste, toxic or hazardous materials, asbestos, large construction debris, paint/paint cans, batteries, electronics and ashes.

The borough will accept a limited number of non-commercial vehicle tires at a fee of $3 for each tire.

Bulky furniture items and large appliances require an additional fee of $5.00 per item. All refrigerators, freezers, air conditioners, and dehumidifiers must have documentation that all Freon and other gases have been removed.

Acceptance or rejection of any items is at the discretion of the Dallas Borough Road Department personnel and Dallas Borough administration.
