Easter Egg Hunt

Saturday, April 1 (rain date, Sunday, April 2)

Join us for our annual spring Egg Hunt at Koenig Field, Saturday, April 1 (Rain date will be Sunday, April 2). Bring your own bag or basket to collect treats and prizes. We are welcoming kids ages 1 (walkers)-10 to hunt for Easter Eggs. Come and enjoy our FREE Easter Tradition!

Participating kids will be grouped into 3 hunts. Toddlers (1-2), Little Kids (3-6), and Big Kids (7-10).
We ask that all participants arrive at 11am to prepare for the hunt. Toddlers will be given the most time, starting at 11am. Older kids will start a few minutes later.

*If you have more than one child participating, and would like them to stay together, they may do so, as long as they are close to the age for the hunt they participate in (for example, if your children are 6 and 8, and they could both participate in the Big Kids Hunt).

Important Change to Recycling

As of January 1, 2021, Republic Services is no longer accepting any glass with curbside Recycling Collection. Glass has the tendency to break during collection and contaminates other recyclables with fine shards of glass.  Any contaminated items are forced to be rejected, and sent to a landfill. To continue recycling glass items, Republic Services has stationed a large blue dumpster in the parking lot behind the Edgewood Borough Building, 2 Race Street, for items to be dropped off at residents' convenience. This bin is located next to the paper collection bins.  

IMPORTANT NOTE: Please only bring your CLEAN glass recyclables, without lids, to place in the bin.
