Tree Trimming Pick Up Schedule

The Public Works Department will be collecting tree trimmings for Punxsutawney Borough residents only from October 15th through October 19th, 2018.  Only tree trimmings four inches or less in diameter from Borough residents will be collected.  Larger tree sections or contractor cut trees must be disposed of by the homeowner or contractor.  The Borough’s wood chipper will be used to discard the trimmings and all limbs should be cut small enough to be handled by hand. 

Changes to this schedule could occur due to weather and/or the amount of trimmings to be picked up.

Trimmings should be next to the curb by the road, but not on the roadway.  Do not park on or near piles of tree trimmings.  Please leave ample room to operate the wood chipper machine.  If trimming piles are blocked, they cannot be picked up and removal will become the responsibility of the resident.

Anyone having questions on this initiative should contact Public Works at 938-8685 or the Borough office at 938-4480.
