Neighborhood Paper "Egg Hunt"

 In place of our normal egg hunt this year, neighbors are encouraged to decorate paper eggs, and place them in windows/decorate doors/place them anywhere people can see as they walk by. Eggs can go up on Saturday, April 4 and be left up all week, so everyone has a chance to search for them. Then as you walk around the neighborhood through the week, you can "hunt" for eggs.

 This event is for ALL AGES, and we welcome our neighboring communities to participate!

*PLEASE REMEMBER TO FOLLOW SOCIAL DISTANCING RECOMMENDATIONS FROM THE CDC. Limit your outdoor "hunt" to immediate family only, i.e. parent(s) and child(ren) and avoid close personal contact and groups. Please avoid passing others on sidewalks, and leave adequate space between one another. If sidewalks get crowded, please choose another route, or go out at a different time.

Street Sweeping Starts Wednesday April 1, 2020

Public works will begin sweeping Wednesday April 1, 2020 as advertised.  However, the police department will not ticket vehicles that remain on the sweeping route at this time.  We greatly appreciate those residents who take the time to find another parking spot so that we do our best to clean the streets, but we understand parking is limited while most of us are staying home.  Here's a tip from the police department: use this and every Wednesday to check on your vehicle and make sure it is locked and that your valuables are hidden and secure.  It's also a good idea to start your vehicle periodically to avoid a dead battery.

TRASH NOTICE: Yard Waste and Bulk Item Pickup Suspended

Republic Services will be suspending the collection of Bulk Waste and Yard Waste effective Thursday April 2, 2020. Do not place anything at the curb besides household refuse and recycling. Please make every effort to tie and seal garbage bags as tightly as possible to protect the safety of our essential trash collectors.

The need to suspend the collection of these items is due to the tremendous increase (30%) of residential refuse being generated while the Commonwealth operates under a ‘stay at home’ order. While this may be inconvenient for some, the need to collect residential refuse is essential to public health and takes priority over the collection of other items. Recycling will still be collected on scheduled days. Please continue to follow cleaning and sorting guidelines to minimize contamination in the recycling stream.

Edgewood Borough Offices Closed Until Further Notice

In light of the circumstances surrounding the nationwide outbreak of the Corona virus and for the health and safety of our employees, the Edgewood Borough offices will be closed to the public until further notice.  Borough business can still be conducted, albeit in a reduced capacity, during this time of social distancing.  The public works department will be staffed and can be reached by dialing the borough’s main phone line and following the automated phone system prompts.  Police, fire, and medical emergencies should dial 911.  Code enforcement and building permit questions can utilize the borough’s main phone line and follow the automated phone system prompts or contact Lee Miller via email at inspections@edgewoodboro.com.     

General inquiry messages left on the borough voice mail will be checked and returned as staffing limitations allow.   

Main phone line: 412-242-4824  

All Edgewood-sponsored events are cancelled until further notice.  Please check back often for updates or follow our Facebook page for more information @EdgewoodBoroughEvents.

Borough Parks Closed

Following the Commonwealth’s decision to close their park facilities, we made the difficult decision to close Koenig Field for the time being. The dog run at Dickson Park will also be closed at this time. After careful consideration, we decided this is best for the wellbeing of the community to prevent gathering in groups. Signs will be posted at both locations, and we will provide an update when we are able to re-open these spaces.

That being said, we do still believe outdoor activity is important. If you do decide to walk/jog, etc., in public spaces, we urge you to take all recommended precautions with social distancing. Also, if sidewalks, etc. are getting crowded, please choose a different route, or consider going out at a different time. We understand that these actions may create an inconvenience and ask for your understanding in during this unprecedented time.
