Spring & Summer

MAINTAIN PROPERTY BEYOND FENCES

Citizens are reminded that they have to maintain their properties according to ordinances beyond fence lines if their properties extend to roadways and allyways.  Weeds and trees must not be allowed to block or encroach upon roadways.

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.


PARK SHELTERS

The park season officially begins the Friday before Memorial Day and ends on Labor Day. Park hours are from sunrise to sunset. The Recreation Board takes reservations begining January 1st on a first-come basis.

2024 LEAF COLLECTION

October 15th to December 1st

 Leaf collection will begin in West Mayfield on October 15th and end on December 1st. All leaves must be raked close to the side of the road.  Please do not place leaves on roadways. Leaves placed in bags won’t be accepted. The public works department will canvass the streets and alleys looking for piles of leaves, but to arrange for pick-up, call the municipal building at (724) 843-8330 and leave a message.

 

2024 HALLOWEEN NIGHT

To Be Announced, 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.

Winter

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.

All Year

HEALTHY SEWERS

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.
