B&W Disposal contracted for Mifflinburg Clean Up

Apr. 19—MIFFLINBURG — Council members in Mifflinburg voted to switch firms to provide disposal and hauling services for the annual Spring Drop Off event for Mifflinburg residents next week.

At Tuesday night's public meeting, borough council members amended a March motion. B&W Disposal was awarded the contract to conduct the cleanup April 24-27. Hometown Disposal of Selinsgrove was removed from the contract. The change was made due to a mistake on the borough's end, according to borough Manager Margaret Metzger.

The price to conduct the cleanup is $375 for a 30-yard waste container and $48 a ton to pay for the municipal waste landfill fees at the Lycoming County Resource Management Services in Montgomery.

The event will be held from noon to 8 p.m. April 24-26 and from 8 a.m. to noon April 27 at the borough's maintenance facility near the recycling center, 6 Industrial Park Road, Mifflinburg.

Residents may bring their waste materials, yard waste, etc. to the location for disposal and transfer to the Lycoming County Landfill. Items that are not accepted by the landfill cannot be accepted at this event. Therefore, recyclables, tires, paint, shellac, varnish, batteries, and some electronics cannot be accepted by the borough. construction materials are also not accepted.

There will be a fee assessed for any items that contain refrigerant (air conditioners, freezers, refrigerators, etc.). This fee will cover the expense of removing the refrigerant prior to disposal and must be paid at the time of drop-off.

The event is for borough residents only. Proof of residency is required.
