Your Community Parks – Update

  • Avon Park is now restricting all group activities, including playground and recreational equipment.
  • Avonworth Community Park is following the lead of the Pennsylvania State Parks and remaining open except for the playground area. Please note that the restrooms facilities are not yet open for the season, however there are two hand wash stations available for use.

  • Recycling Pickup

    April 1, 2020

    Because of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, Federal and State Declarations of Emergency have been issued that recommend non-essential employees shelter in place and/or work from home when possible to promote social distancing. As a result, Waste Management has significantly reduced its “field” work force and is focusing on the performance of essential services during this unprecedented emergency. Because of its importance to the health and safety of our society, municipal solid waste collection and disposal is deemed an “essential service” in most instances, and so Waste Management’s employees dedicated to collecting and disposing of trash are in the field continuing to perform this critical function.

    In order for Waste Management to maintain its focus on municipal solid waste collection and disposal, and due to the reduced number of employees in the field, effective Wednesday, March 25, 2020, Waste Management is temporarily suspending the performance of the following services, which are non-essential during this period of emergency:

    Yard Waste Collection – grass clippings, brush, tree limbs, etc.
    Please Note:
    All trash/refuse must be bagged & sealed (and wherever possible) placed in containers. LOOSE ITEMS WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.
    · All recyclable materials must be placed inside recycling bin (including cardboard). ITEMS LEFT OUTSIDE OF BIN, WILL NOT BE COLLECTED.

    · WM will enforce (bag and/or cart limits), as reflected in our current contract.

    When the Declarations of Emergency and social distancing recommendations have been eased and Waste Management’s work force returns to pre-pandemic levels, these services will be restarted. Waste Management will provide notice when the service(s) will resume.
