Delmont schedules borough-wide clean-up for mid-May

Patrick Varine

Delmont’s annual borough-wide clean-up is set for May 16-18 at the borough public works garage on Bierer Street.

Three dumpsters will be placed at the garage where residents can dispose of a wide variety of trash at no cost during daylight hours.

Participants may be asked to provide proof of residence, and an early pick-up service will be offered to senior citizens in the borough.

Public works employees will haul acceptable items for those unable to physically participate. To arrange a pick-up, call 724-468-4422 by May 13.

Trash is not permitted to be left outside the dumpsters, which will be closed once they are filled.

• Acceptable items include: furniture, appliances (except for those containing Freon, unless removal has been certified with the proper tag for A/C units, refrigerators, dehumidifiers and freezers), regular household trash, building materials (except for concrete, blocks or bricks) and dry paint.

• Unacceptable items include: car parts or tires, TVs or other electronics, liquids and hazardous chemicals.

The public works garage is at 30 Bierer Street.

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.
