Parkside Borough Information Center
Work was completed for the Borough of Parkside, the water main has been installed on E. Chelton / Chester Blvd. / and most of E Roland Rd. The house services still need to be completed on those streets.
The information needed is posted on the CWA website, and residents can go to that site to get information on work that has been completed and where the work is currently being done.

To All Residents:
Starting with the Heavy Trash pickup on January 29th 2014, all mattresses
and box springs must be wrapped in either a plastic mattress bag or
wrapped in a plastic tarp, secured with a type of tape. This is
now requested to prevent the spread of any type of contamination
to our haulers or other residents. Thank you for your cooperation in
Parkside Borough Council
Everyone should have received a little post card showing what the new trash and recycling will be for 2013.
The Schedule is as follows:
Regular Trash Pickup = Every Tuesday and Friday
Co-Mingle Recycle Pickup = 1st & 3rd Wednesday of each Month
Bulk Trash = Last Wednesday of each Month
As part of the new trash pickup contract you will notice that bulk trash collection is once a month again and we now have single stream recycling and it is a curb pickup. To save costs for this you simply need to designate one of your trash cans for recycling by placing a recycle sticker on the can. If you need another sticker you can stop by the Borough office to pick one up. You will find that you can recycle as much as 60% of your trash now. Anything plastic with a recycling symbol on it can be recycled now and picked up curb side on the First and Third Wednesday's of the month. Paper and carboard are to be recycled this way as well. So if you have a large carboard box you can stuff it with other recyclables such as aluminum cans, and glass and leave that at the curb for pickup too.
If there are problems with any collection please email, call or stop by the Borough office with your street address. We are using a new company for trash collection (B&L). There may be missed houses at first near streets that border Upland and Brookhaven. Please let us know so that we can make sure to contact B&L to correct the issue.
The single stream recycling will hopefully grow and save Parkside money and be responsible with our waste. Less weight in the trash saves costs for us as the Delaware County Station (where all trash in DELCO is dumped for landfills) is now charging $33 per ton to take our trash. Recycling will help lower our weight and cost over time as we get used to recycling. Most families will see they can recycle as much as 60% of their trash now.
