Brush Pick Up Update:
Brush pick up consists of branches no bigger than 6 inches in diameter, and no longer than 6 feet. Twigs should be in neat small piles.
Loose material like hedge trimmings, leaves, yard and garden waste needs to be put in paper lawn and leaf bags which are available at Agway, Giant Eagle, Lowes, Walmart, as well as the Borough office for .44 per bag. Please only compostable material; no garbage such as plastic planting containers, etc.
Ligonier Borough Public Works will now be picking up brush and yard bags on Mondays (weather permitting). Please place on curbside and NOT on streets.
Loose material can be put in piles curbside NOT on the street during our annual leaf pick up. Our annual leaf pick up is from the week after Fort days until December 1. Brush should be left out of loose material piles.
Ligonier Borough Public Works will NOT pick up:
Grass clippings, sod, potting soil, dirt, etc. as they are not recyclable. Please make arrangements with your refuse hauler to pick up trash, garbage or tires.
