Recycling Ordinance: Ord. #1842

Act 101 of 1998 requires commercial, municipal and institutional establishments located in Pennsylvania's mandated municipalities to recycle high-grade office paper, corrugated paper, aluminum and leaf waste. In addition, establishments must recycle any other materials included in the municipality's recycling ordinance or regulations, which includes glass, newsprint, and #1 and #2 plastics.

All residents in the City are required to have garbage service through Waste Management. Residents are required to recycle at curbside using the container/bin provided by the City of DuBois. Bins can be picked up at the Municipal Building between the hours of 8 AM - 4 PM Monday through Friday. A copy of the items to put in the bin is attached below:

Leaf Pick-Up: The annual leaf pick-up is generally in mid-November after most of the leaves are down. Residents will be notified by newspaper, radio, and the display sign in the park a week prior to pick up. Residents are to put untied bagged leaves at the curb on their regularly scheduled garbage night.
