 ATTENTION SEVENTH WARD RESIDENTS
The Swatara Township Board of Commissioners is seeking applications for the position of Commissioner of the 7th Ward.  Applicants must be registered voters and in continued residence of the 7th Ward for at least one year.  Interested persons shall submit a brief letter of application indicating their interest and resume detailing qualifications for the position.  Applications will be accepted until an appointment is made.
 

ROAD CLOSURE NOTICE
Pleasantview Road from Bridge Street to Old Derry Street will be closed April 17 through April 23 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. for sewer main replacement.

 SPRING CURBSIDE YARD WASTE COLLECTION  WEEK  
APRIL 20-24, 2015
 
Monday, April 20: Chambers Hill
Tuesday, April 21: Rutherford
Wednesday, April 22: Lawnton/Lenker Manor
Thursday, April 23: Oberlin Gardens/29th Street Area
Friday, April 24: Oberlin, Enhaut and Bressler

If the entire route is not completed each day, Township Crews will start the next available day exactly where they left off and continue until a complete round of the Township has been made.  

Items that WILL be picked up include: leaves, sticks, hedge clippings, garden debris, tree branches (less than 8” in diameter, cut less than 6’ long). If leaves and other small materials are bagged, they must be placed in brown paper yard waste bags (available at home and garden centers).  Plastic bags may not be used due to DEP regulations for our compost facility.  Loose leaves may still be raked curbside for pickup.     

Items that WILL NOT be picked up include: grass clippings, logs, tree trunks, stumps, lumber, garbage of any kind.

The Township schedules curbside yard waste collection twice per year - once in the Spring and again in late Summer.  Please do not call for individual yard waste pick-ups before or after the scheduled collection dates as the Highway Department needs to concentrate on performing road maintenance tasks.  Please remember that the yard waste composting facility at 780 Kelker Street is open April through October, Monday through Friday, 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Saturday’s from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for Swatara Township residents who wish to drop off their yard waste. Permits must be obtained from the municipal building prior to drop off at the facility
 

 
DRUG TAKE BACK PROGRAM
 The Police Department would like to remind residents and non-residents that we participate in the DEA's National Prescription Drug Take Back Program all year round.  Simply take your unused or expired medication, prescription or non, to the township municipal building’s police lobby during normal business hours (Monday-Friday 8:00am. to 4:00p.m.).  Staff or one of our officers will take the drugs and place them in our Drug Take Back box where they will remain secured until disposal.  This program is completely anonymous and therefore no questions are asked.  If you would like to drop off the medication during the evening or on the weekends simply call one of our officers via Dauphin County Communications at 717-558-6900 and have them meet you at the township building.
