Street Sweeping
NEW 2017 SWEEPING SCHEDULE – Beginning this spring, street sweeping will be performed weekdays on the 1st and 3rd week of each month.  To keep it simple, street sweeping will take place the same weeks as Yard Waste Pickup.   We will follow the same day-of-the-week sweeping schedule.  We plan to have the sweeper out on the streets Mondays through Fridays during the following weeks:  April 3, April 17, May 1, May 15, June 5, June 19, July 10 (no sweeping – or yard waste — 4th of July week), July 17 (to make-up for 4th of July week and to stay on schedule with Yard Waste Pickup), July 31, August 14, September 4 (not Labor Day, we’ll pick a date for Monday sweeps that week), September 18, October 2, October 16, November 6, November 20 and finally December 4.  Parking-restriction signs are posted throughout the borough and parking restrictions are enforced during this time.

Street & Traffic Lights
To report a traffic light or street light outage, please contact the borough at 215-646-1000.

Stormwater Management

The Public Works Department cleans stormwater inlets and monitors the effects of severe rain events on public roadways.  Residents can help by clearing debris from stormwater inlets in their neighborhood in anticipation of severe storm events.
