Clean Up Day – Bulk Waste & Hard to Recycle Drop-Off
May 18 @ 9:30 am - 1:30 pmFree
The annual Swissvale Borough Clean-Up Day will be held on Saturday, May 18, 2019. Activities begin at 9:30 a.m. at the Public Works Garage and at Memorial Park. We will be targeting areas around the Borough to clean and will provide bags, tools, gloves and T-Shirts to all participants. We are looking for volunteers of all ages and abilities to help with the annual clean-up. Volunteers should report to the DPW Garage at 7560 Roslyn Street by 9:30 a.m. on Clean-Up Day. Instructions will be given at that time and teams will be formed to clean various areas of the Borough. All volunteers will receive a complementary lunch and all are eligible to win prizes at the end of the clean-up. Simultaneously, we will be collecting bulk waste and hard to recycle items at Memorial Park on Church Street. Any type of bulk waste will be accepted at this event as well as hard to recycle items such as televisions, computers and computer peripherals, batteries, paint, paint thinners, oil, antifreeze, fluorescent light bulbs, tires, Freon and non-Freon containing appliances, and almost any other type of waste product that is not normally collected in your weekly trash and recycling pick-up. This service is available to Swissvale residents only and all participants must show proof of residency. The gates at Memorial Park will open at 9:30 a.m. and will close at 1:30 p.m. Please consider taking a few hours of time to volunteer and make Swissvale a great place to live and work. Even if you cannot participate in the entire event, any time you can devote to the clean-up is greatly appreciated.
