Millersburg Borough Schedules Spring Clean Up

Millersburg Borough has scheduled spring clean up for Saturday, April 11 from 7 a.m. until 3 p.m. (or until the cans are full) at the Pine Street lot at the intersection of Pine and Market Streets.

This is an opportunity for residents to do some spring cleaning and get rid of old furniture, broken items and other junk.

Millersburg Borough cannot accept electronics. Gratz Borough has agreed to host the northern Dauphin County’s monthly electronics recycling service that day. Upper Paxton Township will resume hosting the electronics recycling program on May 9. This service is offered on the second Saturday of every month at the township building with the support of the Dauphin County Commissioners.

Millersburg Borough cannot accept hazardous materials such as weed and insect sprays, paint, automobile fluids, antifreeze, lye and other chemicals. Dauphin County residents can arrange for a free pick up of hazardous materials by calling 1-800-449-7587.

The Borough will not accept household waste, construction material and landscaping material. They reserve the right to reject other materials.

Used tires will be accepted for a fee.

Residents are asked to have identification ready in order to show proof of residency in the Borough. Upper Paxton Township will host their spring clean up on the same day for township residents.
