8th annual let’s redd up Heidelberg


VOLUNTEERS NEEDED!!!   saturday, april 25, 2015– 8:30AM - In effort to keep the Borough of Heidelberg a beautiful place to live, work and play, the Borough will be conducting its seventh annual “Let’s Redd Up Heidelberg.


The goal of this event is to pick up litter, plant trees and to do other small earth-friendly chores.   Volunteers will be provided with bags, gloves, supplies, safety vests and lunch.  Interested individuals, groups, or students seeking volunteer hours are encouraged to register at the Heidelberg Borough Building by calling 412-276-0363.



Borough to Provide dumpsters for Household Waste on cleanup Weekend


On Saturday, April 25, 2015, the Borough will make available and provide two 30-yard dumpsters for residents to dispose of various household waste that they couldn’t otherwise dispose of during weekly pick-up.  We hope that you take this opportunity to clean up your yards and property. 


The dumpsters will be located on Third Street next to the Ellsworth Avenue Playground,  and in front of Heidelberg Park on Industry Way.  There is no fee for the disposal of your waste during this program.  We ask that you compact the waste so that we can maximize the dumpster space.  The program is for residential waste only – NO COMMERCIAL WASTE or DUMPING.  The dumpsters are limited in size, therefore, once they are full, the program is over and we ask that you do not leave any waste on the street, right-of-ways, neighboring lots or on park property.


Items that are prohibited from disposing within the dumpsters include tires, TV’s, Freon, liquid paint, car parts and hazardous materials. 


This service is provided by the Heidelberg Borough Council and Mayor in conjunction with their 8th Annual Let’s Redd Up Heidelberg / Earth Day efforts to clean up and beautify Heidelberg; making our town a safe, clean and pleasurable place to live, work and play.
