  • The pickup schedule will remain the same Friday morning pick-up.  The haulers are requesting that you place your trash out on the curb on Thursday evening, as long as it is in a secure container so as not to blow away should there be storms or gusty winds.
  • If a holiday falls during the week, the trash will typically be collected a day later (Saturday).  Eagle Disposal has provided the following holiday schedule for their customers:  http://www.eagledisposalofpa.com/holiday.htm
