State College Borough Guide On Float Disposal

November 10, 2017 | By | No Comments

BOROUGH OF STATE COLLEGE
243 South Allen Street, State College, PA 16801-4806

November 2017

RE: Proper Disposal of Float Materials

With Penn State’s Homecoming Weekend fast approaching, I know all of you are busy making plans for your fraternity’s homecoming float. The Borough wishes you a safe and successful Homecoming. As you plan your homecoming activities, it is important to incorporate into your planning the proper disposal of your float after this year’s festivities are over.

It is very important not to throw your entire float into your dumpster. This could cause injury to the Borough’s refuse collection truck drivers or damage to one of the trucks. When disposing of float materials, please remember that it is important to dismantle the float and put any lumber, chicken wire, and/or large, bulky items out at the curb or near your dumpster for bulk item collection. You can arrange for this type of pick up by calling the Borough’s Service Building at 234-7135.

All float material must be secured properly until pickup occurs. Crepe paper and similar small items can be bagged, tied securely and placed in the dumpster for collection. Remember to clean up all poms promptly before they blow into the street and onto neighboring properties. Please bear in mind that your float or sections of your float must not be left on any public sidewalk, street or any public right-of-way after the parade is over.

In addition, the Penn State Homecoming Committee has made arrangements for floats to be dismantled on Penn State University property. Any questions or requests for more information regarding this option can be made by contacting the Committee at paradehomecoming@psu.edu.

In order to take care of post-homecoming clean up, floats need to be disassembled completely and the materials placed out for collection by 7:00 AM on Friday, November 17, 2017.

If you have any questions about the disposal of your float prior to refuse pickup, please contact the State College Neighborhood and Community Services Department at 234-7191 or the Sanitation Department at 2347135.
Sincerely,

Tips To Keep Pipes From Freezing

February 13, 2016 | By | No Comments

With the temperature dropping dangerously low for the next several days, the following tips can help prevent water pipes from freezing.

(1) To Prevent Frozen Pipes:

  • Keep the thermostat at least at 60 Degrees.
  • Let faucets drip slightly when not using water for a few hours.
  • Open doors on kitchen and bathroom cabinets to let warmer air circulate under the sinks.

(2) Evidence you may have a frozen pipe:

  • Frost has accumulated on a pipe under sinks.
  • Little or no water comes out of the kitchen or bathroom faucets.

If you see evidence of a frozen pipe, contact FRATFIX (814) 880-3131 for assistance.

Best Regards
