Help Keep our Borough Clean

Do you know discarding of old furniture, mattresses and rubbish, etc. is a problem in the Borough?

Neighborhood cleanup

In the past few months, there has been a sudden increase in dumping rubbish (old furniture, mattresses,
etc.) in the alleys and on private property in the Borough. If anyone in the Borough witnesses this
happening or knows who might be doing this, please contact the Carlisle Police Department at 243-
5252. §170-9 of the Borough Ordinance states: “Littering. A person is guilty of disorderly conduct if he
or she throws, drops, places or deposits upon any public sidewalk, street, alley, avenue, park, square or
common, or upon private property without license or invitation from the owner, any wastepaper,
sweepings, ashes, household waste, glass, metal, cardboard, refuse, rubbish or any dangerous or
detrimental substance”.
Any person who shall violate any provision of this article, as amended, shall, upon conviction thereof, be
sentenced to pay a fine of not more than $1,000 and costs of prosecution, and, in default of payment of
such fine and costs, shall be sentenced to imprisonment of not more than 30 days.
One bulk item per week will be collected curb side for each resident who participates in the pay-as-youthrow program (borough bags). A list of items acceptable for bulk collection is available on the
Borough’s website. These items must be placed at the curb on your designated collection day along
with your garbage and recyclables. York Waste has notified the Borough that they will no longer collect
e-waste (desktop and laptop computers, computer monitors, computer peripherals, and televisions),
beginning January 1, 2013.
Please help keep the Borough a clean town to visit and for you to live in!
