East Greenville’s New Trash Contract Commences Without Major Issues
Written by Bradley Schlegel, Staff Writer

            East Greenville's first trash pickup under a new contract occurred without any major issues. Borough officials received no resident complaints after the Jan. 5 collection, according to Council member Melissa Leinbach.

            "I think it went pretty well," said Leinbach, chair of the borough's trash and recycling committee. "I'm not aware of any issues."

            On Tuesday, Leinbach said she expects some issues to be reevaluated related to the new agreement with Whitetail Disposal. For the first time in more than 30 years, residents disposed of their garbage and recycling without the borough-issued bags.

            In advance of the first Wednesday pickup with two 96-gallon toters, municipal officials considered a handful of requested exemptions for trash pickup.

            One resident of East Sixth Street asked to replace his recycling toter with a 64-gallon device. A Main Street business owner asked to transport his receptacles to a private residence.

            A resident who lives near Home City Ice asked the borough to waive the trash fees. A female resident said she did not want to utilize the totes.

            Council rejected all of them during its Jan. 3 meeting.

            Multiple council members expressed concerns that granting one request might open "Pandora's box." They also asked residents to directly contact the trash hauler to arrange for the removal of bulk items.

            Residents are obliged to set out their toters between 6 p.m. and midnight Tuesday at the end of the driveway or alley. Wheels should face the house to insure materials are emptied. All items should be placed in the trash toter in bags, not loose. The containers should be located at least three feet away from mailboxes, poles, lampposts, vehicles and other toters in order to allow for automated pickup, according to information posted on the borough's website.

            It states that bulk item service occurs on the normal service day, and requests must be received at least 48 hours in advance. Whitetail Disposal can be reached at 610-754-0103, option 2, or by email at For more details about bulk items and removal by Whitetail Disposal, visit:
