Bradford Woods issues alerts about solicitations, tree removal
Bradford Woods officials have issued an alert to residents informing them that an environmental advocacy group will be canvassing residents in the borough.
The PennEnvironment Research and Policy Center has obtained a permit from the Northern Regional Police Department to distribute flyers titled “ Wildlife Over Waste ,” which warns of the dangers posed to wildlife when plastics such as cups, bags, containers, cutlery and other items are not disposed of properly.
A second flyer titled “Protect Pittsburgh from Dangerous Air Pollution,” which discusses the dangers to public health posed by air pollution, also will be distributed.
A second alert was issued this week reminding residents that it is the responsibility of homeowners to remove trees from their property that pose a hazard to people or property.
The alert urged residents to contact the borough if they become aware of a tree that might pose a problem. To report a tree, residents should include the complete address of the property on which it is located, the exact location of the hazardous tree, photos of the tree and contact information for the person filing the report.
