How do I apply for Water/Sewer Services?

What about Trash pickup? Does Lawrenceville Recycle?
Lawrenceville Borough residents must use Real Disposal in Mansfield for household trash and recycling pickup. Customers may pay a monthly fee or pay per bag, using designated stickers. Stickers may be purchased at the Borough Office and The Dandy. The cost is $2.00 each or $10.00 for a sheet of five. New customers must also contact Real Disposal prior to first pickup to add their names to the pickup list.
Real Disposal picks up recycling at customers’ homes on the first Friday of each month. Recyclables must be separated and packaged according to Real’s guidelines: flyers containing these guidelines are available at the Borough office. In addition, large recycling containers are available 24/7/365 in the Borough Office parking lot. There are containers for corrugated cardboard, #1 and #2 plastics, newspapers/magazines, metal cans, and clear glass: instructions are clearly posted on the exterior of each section. If you have any questions, please contact Real Disposal at (570) 662-3818.
How do I dispose of junk, etc. that the trash service doesn’t take?
Lawrenceville Borough schedules two Cleanup Days each year – in the spring and the fall – at no cost to Borough residents (proof of residency is required). Cleanup dates are publicized as notices on the monthly water bills, and on the website, and on the website Events calendar. Contact the Borough office regarding unacceptable materials and other questions.
Can I have Yard Sales?
Residents may hold up to two yard sales in a calendar year; a $2.00, three-day permit must be purchased at the Borough Office prior to each sale. In addition, the Borough sponsors a town-wide “mile-long” sale each year on the first Friday and Saturday after July 4th; all Borough residents are encouraged to participate in this as well. Permits are not required for the mile-long sale.
What are some rules/restrictions I should know?
Motorized vehicles may not be operated on the dikes. These vehicles damage dikes and affect their purpose of flood protection.
