Fox Chapel municipal trash bins closing for 4 months

Fox Chapel municipal garbage bins will be closed while crews prepare the site for new public works facilities.

Trash bins at the Fox Chapel municipal building will be unavailable for use for the next four months during site prep for the new public works facilities.

The dumpsters are provided by the borough for residents to discard bulk items such as furniture and small appliances.

Borough officials said residents will be notified by Nixle, a messenger alert system, when a reopen date is determined.

The borough’s garbage hauler, Vogel Disposal, allows for items up to 45 pounds to be set out for weekly collection. Accepted items include lamps, bikes, sweepers, plastic lawn furniture and tools, among others. There is no limit on the number of items that can be set out.

Larger items will be taken for a fee. Call Vogel at 855-494-3345 for more information.

Council voted earlier this year to move forward with a potential $5 million multi-year project to replace the public works facilities.

Council budgeted $1.1 million this year for site preparation, which will include storm water retention facilities, new water and electric lines, paving and removal of fill material.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using 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.
