Leaf Collection is Over

ūüćĀ Leaf collection is wrapping up. Please do not put leaves out on the curb after this Sunday 11/27. Once your street is cleared there will not be another pickup. Please be kind and do not clog our stormwater drains with uncollected leaves. After Sunday please bag your leaves and put them out for regular trash collection. Thank you!

Weather is turning colder and Ben Avon Public Works is now preparing for the winter weather.  Anyone with questions can contact Dale Regrut, Public Works Foreman, at 412-761-5311.

Ben Avon Borough has not received any further information regarding Verizon and SmartLink’s proposed cell phone tower in Ben Avon. When information is received, it will be made available to our residents here.

Keep Your Cat Indoors

Outdoor Cat Pictures | Download Free Images on UnsplashDomestic cats can make wonderful pets. But cats that roam outdoors, can have serious consequences. Recent estimates name cats as the number one unnatural killer of birds in the U.S.  Outdoors, cats are a non-native and invasive species that threaten birds and other wildlife, disrupt ecosystems, and spread diseases.

Cat owners can help to protect birds and other property by keeping their pet cats indoors. This practice is also beneficial to cats themselves. Studies have proven that indoor cats are healthier, safer, and live longer than their outdoor counterparts.  Check out the American Bird Conservancy to find out how to keep your furry feline friend safe.
