"They did the same thing with my bags!  How on earth can a place that accepts yard waste refuse the bags that are made for yard waste?  Seems weird."

"A few weeks ago I put some yard waste out in bags.  They emptied them into the truck and put the empty bags in with my bottle/can/paper recycling. Works for me!  I wonder if they'll pick it up from trash cans now."

Yard Waste Pick up

Hey everyone, just wanted to share, as I called today to find out. If you notice today that your yard waste bags are still on the curb however are empty it is because the location where they dump the yard waste no longer accepts the bags. So they will empty the bags and leave the bags on the curb for now. I thought it was strange so I called and they gave me the  explantation. This is not a finger pointing post just giving you all a heads up.See More

INVEST 530,000 to SAVE 294 ?

Any good design, like any good planning decision for the real world, must include cost-benefit considerations.  Several years ago the RP Shade Tree Commission submitted to RP Borough Council a plan to plant a double row of trees--an allee--from the foot bridge at Ridley Park Lake, across "the island," straight up the slope along the fence to Glenloch Road.  At the time, Council told the STC to hold off until after construction of the new pathway they had planned, and then plant trees along it. …See More

Posted by Nina on March 18, 2015 at 1:30pm 4 Comments

Councilor Glenn announced at March 17 council meeting that there will be a public forum on Code Permit Regulations and Ridley Park Code Enforcement. The date is April 29. The Borough's Code Enforcement Officer A. Tartagalia and some of his staff are to be there to answer residents questions.
