In July, the Borough of Conshohocken instituted a three-month trial of once-per-week trash and recycling collection. The service has traditionally been offered by the borough twice per week. The trial was eventually extended through December.
The change was being considered due to cost savings and to free up time to allow the borough’s public works staff to focus on other types of work such as road repairs.
During an October 19th meeting, a presentation was made by the borough’s public work staff on the results of the trial. You can view the entire presentation here (4:54 mark).
The issue will be on the November 16th agenda of Conshohocken’s Borough Council. It will consider approving a resolution to make the once-per-week collection permanent.
The meeting will be held on Wednesday, November 16th at 7:00 a.m. at the borough hall on 400 Fayette Street.
