Fox Chapel municipal trash bins closing for 4 months
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.
