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 for 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 firstname.lastname@example.org.
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, October 16, 2015.
If you have any questions about the disposal of your float prior to refuse pickup, please contact the State College Division of Health and Neighborhood Services at 234-7191 or the Sanitation Department at 234-7135.
