The new garbage rates will go into effect in the September 2023 bill. Garbage is now billed $127.50 per quarter and $100.50 per quarter for anyone over the age of 65 years and owns and lives in their home.
Sewer/Garbage Bills are mailed 4 times a year; March, June, September, and December and due on the 30th of the month. The bills are mailed the first week of the month.
If you do not receive a bill this doesn’t mean the Borough has stopped charging you or that you don’t owe anything, you MUST pay the bill by the due date to avoid late fees.
Please call the Borough Office 610-258-6142.
The Borough’s trash and recycle contract with Waste Management will end on December 31, 2022. Borough code requires that Wilson Borough advertise the need for trash and recycle services through an RFP. Sealed bids were accepted, and the Borough has awarded the new contract to the lowest responsible bidder, LMR Disposal. Waste Management declined to offer a bid.
Starting January 2, 2023, there will be new pick up dates for trash. Please see the breakdown below and attached maps.
Your recycle day will stay the same, Thursday – every other week.
The new contract allows for five (5) bags, or two (2) thirty-two (32) gallon containers for each collection of trash. Bulk items are restricted to one item per month, which shall be placed out on your collection day the first week of each month.
