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.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
