Spring & Summer
NO GRASS CLIPPNGS, LEAVES ON ROADWAYS
It is illegal in the Commonwealth and West Mayfield Borough to blow grass clippings and leaves into the street. If you do, you are required to remove them immediately from the street when finished. Grass clippings and leaves left in the street are a severe roadway hazard to vehicles, especially motorcycles and bicycles. Additionally, this material gets washed away by storm water and deposited in the water system. This causes storm drains to clog and back up causing flooding. The grass also releases nitrogen into the water system which is not good for the quality of our water.
The park season officially begins the Friday before Memorial Day. Park hours are from sunrise to sunset. Park shelters may only be reserved between the Friday immediately before Memorial Day through Labor Day. Reservations can be made up to one year in advance on a first-come basis.

October 31st, 6:00pm – 7:30pm
The West Mayfield Fire Dept. will provide safety patrols. Residents are reminded to wear bright colored clothing for safe visibility, to carry flashlights, and to carefully inspect all candy before eating.
SNOW PLOWING & WALKWAYS
The borough maintenance department is committed to keeping roadways clear and passable during all weather events. Residents are asked to keep vehicles off roadways when possible and to clear their roadways of obstacles that might affect snow plowing.
Due to the high cost of road salt, the borough does not salt alley ways. Sand is used instead. However, if an alley way is impassible due to icy conditions please contact the borough.
The borough maintains all walkways on its property. By ordinance, residents are responsible for keeping their walkways clear and passable.
Residents are reminded to help keep our sewer system in top working condition or we will continue to pay thousands of tax dollars to fix clogged and broken sewer pipes.
Only toilet paper and human waste should be flushed down toilettes. Nothing else should be flushed down drains even if labeled “flushable,” “safe for toilets,” or “biodegradable.”
Do not use the toilette as a trash can. Do not flush: Cotton balls and cotton swabs, dental floss and dental picks, menstrual products such as pads or tampons, paper towels and tissues, wipes and cleaning cloths, hair, medicine, burnt matches, household cleaning chemicals, household hazardous wastes (paint, pesticides, herbicides, fertilizers)
Do not pour fats, oils, or grease down the drains.
BOROUGH REFUSE PICKUP
Starting August 9, 2021, trash pick up in the borough will change from Wednesdays to Mondays.
The West Mayfield Social Hall is available to the public under the terms and conditions of the Social Hall Rental.
