Due to the State of Emergency declared by Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf on Wednesday March 7, 2018, the Borough’s contracted trash hauler, County Waste, did not dispatch or operate vehicles for their scheduled Wednesday trash pick-up.

County Waste is currently operating one day behind schedule the balance of this week, rescheduling their contracted services with all affected communities.

Accordingly, Orwigsburg’s Friday trash pick-up is rescheduled to Saturday, March 10, 2018.

If you any concerns or questions, please call Borough Hall at 570.366.3103.

Thank you.

Dear Borough Resident/Business,

At the request of residents and County Waste, please be advised effective January 1, 2018, Trash/Garbage/Recycling will be collected at the rear of all properties located on the Square.

If moving your receptacles to the rear of the property is a challenge or hard ship, please call Borough Hall at 570-366-3103, inform us of your difficulty, and we will relocate your containers for you.

County Waste has informed us that they will give Borough Square residents a 2-week period to adjust to the new location, collecting from both the front and rear of Square properties the first two weeks of the new year.

Thank you for your efforts with adjusting to the new pick-up location, and please call Borough Hall at 570-366-3103 if you have any concerns or questions.


Robert A. Williams

Borough Manager


Curbside trash collection is every Tuesday for properties on Market Street and north and every Friday south of Market Street. Trash should be to the curb after 6 p.m. the night prior to pickup. Maximum six bags of trash plus 10 bags of yard waste per week. Large item pickup once per month. In the event of a holiday trash collection will be delayed one day.

Single-stream recycling materials are collected curbside from designated containers every other week on trash collection day. There is no need to separate steel and aluminum, glass, plastic and paper… they all go in one container. Please secure loose paper in clear plastic bags.

Christmas Tree collection or pick-up will take place on your regularly scheduled trash pick-up day. County Waste will pick-up Christmas trees with your household trash.
