Fugitive Tire Roundup
Westmoreland Cleanways would like to invite youth organizations, groups or clubs to register for this year’s Fugitive Tire Roundup. During this annual program, youth groups (posses) from the county collect fugitive tires-tires that escape proper disposal and end up along our roadways, waterways, fields, wooded areas and wetlands. Each group selects one Saturday in April to complete their roundup and turn in their tires. Posses receive a bounty for each of the first 200 passenger tires collected (maximum bounty of $150).

Winter Weather Advisory
Like nearly every other municipality, the Township is precariously low on salt. Over 1,000 tons are on order, but deliveries are not being made we are told, because barges cannot get through the thick ice on the rivers.
Spring Is Around the Corner
Waste Management will have spring leaf and yard waste collection on Wednesday, April 16 and May 7th. Allowable items include leaves, small amounts of grass(gets too heavy in large leaf bags if full), weeds, twigs. Branches – how long, bundled, etc.??? Maximum 4 feet in length, bundled/tied and no greater than 40 pounds.
