HANOVER TWP. — All offices with the exception of the police and fire departments will be closed Monday in observance of Columbus Day.

All garbage and recycling schedules remain the same. Yard waste pickup scheduled for that day will be collected Tuesday. Recycling cans are available for pickup at the municipal building.

KINGSTON TWP. — The yard waste/bagged leaf pickup has been scheduled for Nov. 4-Nov. 15, 7 a.m. to 3 p.m., Monday through Friday. Residents are advised to have yard waste and bagged leaves placed at the curbside.

Yard waste consists of sticks and twigs bundled three feet in length and one foot in height and one foot wide. There is a two bundle limit.

Residents are asked to refrain from sweeping leaves into gutters and roadways. The leaves block storm-drains and pose a serious maintenance problems for the Public Works Department. Residents are reminded that bags must contain only leaves. An ordinance prohibits burning of leaves.

Residents may also drop off leaves without bags and yard waste at the Composting Site located behind the Public Works Facility. For information, call the administrative office at 570-696-3809 or the Public Work Department at 570-696-3650.
