RECYLCING:  Recently the Borough has received several calls about recycling being mixed with the trash the Borough Manager has spoken with JP Mascaro regarding this matter. They use a conventional trash truck to pick up single stream recyclables the only thing that is placed in the truck are recyclables and they are then hauled to a sorting facility where they are separated. The trash is picked up in different truck and is hauled to the landfill. I have included a video below that shows the process.

An excerpt from Lehigh County District Attorney's Memo:

Pennsylvania law (72 Pa.C.S.A. § 9401) distinguishes between consumer and display fireworks
A person may not intentionally ignite or discharge:

  • Consumer fireworks on public or private property without the express permission of the owner…
  • consumer fireworks or sparkling devices while the person is under the influence of alcohol, a controlled substance or another drug…
  • Consumer fireworks within 150 feet of an occupied structure…
Display fireworks include "large fireworks to be used solely by professional pyrotechnicians and designed primarily to produce visible or audible effects …"
Improper use of consumer fireworks in violation of the Fireworks Act constitutes a summary offense with a fine of not more than $100.
