Garbage and recycling collection in Tamaqua will follow the normal schedule this week. There are no changes to the garbage and recycling schedule.
Any recyclables that were not collected last Wednesday due to the storm may be placed at the curb for collection this Wednesday.
Tamaqua property owners must maintain a three-foot-wide path on their sidewalks that is clear of all snow and ice. Snow and ice must be removed from sidewalks within 24 hours after a snowstorm ends.
Residents are also reminded not to throw snow, ice or other materials onto the streets. Vehicle traffic compacts snow into ice and causes a traffic hazard.
Snow should not be piled at intersections, near fire hydrants or on top of storm drains.
Individuals plowing snow on the streets must remove any snow piles that they create.
Residents may be fined for throwing or piling snow onto the streets or for failure to clear their sidewalks.
