Trick or Treat

Trick-or-Treating in Edgewood Borough will occur on Sunday, October 31 from 6-8 p.m.  We strongly encourage social distancing, masking, and proper hand washing to be practiced.  The Centers for Disease Control lists a number of Trick-or-Treat alternatives for those who do not wish to participate in door-to-door candy distribution.  One recommendation is to leave individual goodie bags in an area where social distancing can be maintained.  Residents who do not want to participate should turn off their outside lights.

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.
