Laborer I II Temp Laborer I Public Works-Refuse Job Description

Good Friday Refuse Pickup Schedule

The Lewisburg Borough Office and Public Works Department will be closed on Friday, March 29, 2024 to observe the Good Friday Holiday.  Refuse normally picked up on Friday will be picked up Thursday, March 28, 2024.

Spring Brush Pick-up April 8, 2024 through April 12, 2024

Borough residents are encouraged to participate in the annual spring (brush, tree trimmings and leaves) pick-up scheduled for the week of April 8th through the 12th.

The Borough Public Works Department will be following the daily street maintenance schedule in its efforts to collect brush, tree trimmings and leaves.  These materials will only be collected on the day the street is posted for no parking from 7 AM to Noon, and any subsequent debris left unattended will be considered litter.

Tree limbs and tree debris should be no larger than 2 inches in diameter and 4 feet in length.  It should be placed between the curb and the sidewalk where appropriate.  Leaves should be managed in the same manner as fall collection (placed in the gutter along the street) and not co-mingled with limbs and brush.

The Borough hopes this annual spring pick-up will help alleviate the hassle of collecting the material individually and having to schedule with the municipal brush pile times of operation.  (Brush pile times of operation: Wednesdays 8 AM to 4 PM and Saturdays 8 AM to Noon.)

Additional questions can be directed to the Borough Office at (570) 523-3614 or feel free to stop in at the Borough Office located at 55 South Fifth Street, Lewisburg.

 

SPECIAL WEATHER STATEMENT 2-12-24

With plowable winter precipitation forecast for the late evening tonight into Tuesday morning (February 13, 2024), Lewisburg Borough would like to remind all residents, property owners, businesses, and visitors to be safe.  If you need to travel in Lewisburg Borough (or elsewhere), please watch carefully for crews clearing streets, sidewalks, and parking lots.  The Lewisburg Borough Public Works crew expects to be on the roads beginning early on Tuesday morning for winter weather related activities.

Depending upon the actual amount of snow received, Lewisburg Borough may haul snow from Borough streets beginning early Wednesday morning on February 14, 2024.  This determination will be made by Borough staff on Tuesday and an announcement will be placed on the Lewisburg Borough Facebook page as soon as possible with details.  If the Borough does haul snow, our street parking restrictions will be strictly enforced by the Buffalo Valley Regional Police Department.  Any vehicles violating the “No Parking” requirements will be ticketed and towed to safely facilitate snow removal.  Snow removal will follow the normal street cleaning schedule between the hours of 7:00 am and noon each day.  Streets must remain clear of parked vehicles for the entire posted “No Parking” times as our crew may be making multiple passes to remove the snow.  If street snow hauling is needed with this storm, we anticipate snow removal from Market Street and the metered spaces on the side streets on Thursday, February 15, 2024, between the hours of 12:01 am and 7:00 am.

Property owners are also reminded that Borough Ordinances require the removal of snow and ice from sidewalks within 12 hours of the end of the winter precipitation.
