PRESS RELEASE

The Borough of Bedford will begin the annual collection of loose leaves on Monday, November 2nd, weather permitting. To facilitate collection by workers, most property owners and tenants should rake their leaves directly onto the edge of the street, adjacent to the curb/edge of the street. Only property owners and tenants whose lands are located near to and upstream of a stormwater catchbasin or are located in an area prone to street flooding after severe rainstorms are to place loose leaves along the curbing/edge of the street but not on the street. Tree/shrub limbs, grass, flower/garden plants, rocks, blacktop, garbage, and rubbish, etc. should not be mixed in with the leaves as these items become lodged in the leaf vacuum hoses and cause unnecessary downtime.

If bagging leaves, do NOT use plastic bags. Only leaves placed in recyclable paper bags will be collected.

The public is advised that it is illegal to burn leaves or any other material on the streets.

2020 Leaf Collection Tentative Schedule Please refer to attached map.
YELLOW = Week 1: November 2 – 6
GREEN = Week 2: November 9 – 13
PINK = Week 3: November 16 – 20

This schedule is subject to change and crews may move onto the next area if workloads permit. Property owners should notify their landscapers of the above schedule and plan accordingly.
Please visit our website at www.bedboro.com for any schedule changes.

PRESS RELEASE

FOLLOW-UP TO ORIGINAL JULY 9, 2020 NOTICE REMINDER TO OUR CUSTOMERS TO CONSERVE WATER

As a result of the low flows in the Raystown Branch of the Juniata River, created by the ongoing lack of sustained precipitation in the River’s watershed west of Bedford, the Municipal Authority of the Borough of Bedford is requesting that its customers voluntarily conserve water by taking the following minimum steps:

• Investigate for and then repair any leaking plumbing fixtures.

• Only water grass, shrubs, and trees that have been planted this year and other out-of-doors plants (flowers & gardens) between the hours of 5:00 p.m. and 9:00 a.m. by means of a bucket or hand-held hose with an automatic shut-off.

• Only wash the exterior of buildings and driveways in preparation for painting or sealing.

• If washing vehicles by hand, wash only every other week, use a hose with an automatic shut-off, and attempt to keep pre-rinse and rinse time to around two (2) minutes.

• Restaurants should only serve water if requested to do so by the customer.

Updates on this situation will be provided to the public as conditions warrant.
Questions should be directed to the Bedford Borough Manager at telephone 623-8192.
