Millersburg Borough Collecting Christmas Trees
As a service to Borough residents, Millersburg Borough public works employees will be collecting and disposing live Christmas trees through the end of January, 2017.
If you would like your tree removed, please place it on the curb or as close to the street as possible without obstructing traffic. Weather permitting, Borough workers will collect trees on Monday and Friday mornings and other days as time allows. Due to the holiday, the first scheduled pick up will be Jan. 3 rather than Jan. 2.
The Borough public works crew members will not pick up trees that still have decorations or a base or that are in a bag. Additionally, the Borough will not remove trees from porches, carports or other private property.
Reminder that Dauphin County Recycling offers electronics recycling for Northern Dauphin County once per month. Anyone wishing to dispose of old electronics can drop them off at the Upper Paxton Township building at 506 Berrysburg Road, Millersburg.
This event is held the 2nd Saturday of every month from 9 a.m. until noon.
The next event is January 14, 2017. With the holiday season now past, many people may have received new devices as gifts. We encourage everyone to take advantage of this opportunity to dispose of outdated, unwanted and broken electronics.
If you cannot make it to this event, electronics may also be taken to the Dauphin County Recycling Center at 1625 South Cameron Street in Harrisburg.
Under the Commonwealth's 2010 Covered Device Recycling Act, electronic devices may not be removed with regular municipal trash service. Items such as televisions, computers, laptops, monitors, cell phones, printers, audio equipment, and electronic tablets must be properly disposed of due to health and environmental concerns. More information about this law is posted on DEP's website.

Update on the Daniel Miller Fountain repairs
Millersburg Borough executed a contract with Houck Specialty Contracting to repair the Daniel Miller Fountain, which sustained vehicle damage early Thanksgiving morning, 2015. Houck disassembled the Fountain on May 26. The damaged pieces were removed and a stone company in Barre, Vt. manufactured new pieces. The granite for the fountain originally came from that community. The Fountain was reassembled on Nov. 2-3, 2016.
There is still some landscaping work to be completed. The Borough Council is working with the Historical Society to possibly install decorative bollards to prevent future damage.
We appreciated the community's patience while we restored this piece of Millersburg's history.
