Holiday Trash Pickup

- In Archbald Borough, there will be no trash collection on Christmas Day or New Year's Day. Tuesday pickups will take place Wednesday and Wednesday pickups will take place on Thursday. The same schedule will be followed for both holidays.

- In Throop Borough: Recycling collection will take place on Wednesday instead of Tuesday for both Christmas and New Year's Day.

- In Mayfield Borough: Refuse and recyclables will be collected as usual on Christmas Eve and New Year's Eve. Have items curbside early, since the haulers will begin collections earlier on both days.
