The Police Department has received several complaints from residents who are receiving telephone calls from unknown people of Middle Eastern descent. These calls are requesting the resident to go to their computer and sign on to a website because the resident’s computer is infected with computer viruses.
The caller is advising the residents that they can solve their computer problems by going to the website; when in fact, if they sign on to the website the computer then becomes infected with an assortment of viruses.
The police department advises all residents if they receive such a phone call to not engage in conversation with the caller and hang-up immediately.
Further information from Councilman Stamis:
These call scams are not new. The callers are usually Indian. They will often claim to be a Microsoft represenitive and that you have a care package or support package. They will then walk you through some steps and show you some errors in logs and the event viewer. They will then claim they need remote access to your computer to resolve them. These errors are common and harmless. You may want to take down the number they call you from and report it if possible. These scams are illegal and were supposed to be shut down. As long as you do not give them access to your computer you have nothing to worry about.

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.
