2021 Plant Sale - SURVEY

Some of you may remember our sale of edible garden plants last spring. We are happy to announce that we will be offering that again this year! Once more we are teaming up with the talents of Pittsburgh area artist and organic gardener Karen Sandorf (A Gardener’s Artworks, karen-sandorf-gallery-shop.square.site). We’re starting with a brief survey to allow some initial planning in seed purchases (you can still order plants if you don’t participate in the survey). Please note the changes to this year’s sale. In order to have an accurate number of plants, orders will need to be placed BEFORE she places her final seed order. This will leave a quick turn-around time between the available survey and the order due date. Surveys are due by thisSaturday, January 16th. Order forms will be available shortly after that, and orders will be due with payment by Saturday, January 23rd. Plant pick up will be arranged at Koenig Field in mid-May. Dates are listed in the survey. More details about pick-up will follow to everyone who places an order. You can also check the available plant list, to start thinking about what you’d like to order. This list is not finalized, and will be updated following the results of the survey. Thank you for participating!

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.
