Howdy folks! I've been reading a lot of this forum and I finally joined. My fiancee and I are preparing to move. We won't have roommates to differ some of life's costs so we're looking for ways to cut back. One such way is trash pick-up. We'd like to avoid paying for a weekly service, but I'm having trouble finding a municipal landfill nearby. Can anyone help? Thanks!

Great! I appreciate your help. So you can just bring bags of trash and pay per bag/weight?

Saylorsburg covers a large area! Part of it is considered to be located in Chestnuthill Township and Chestnuthill Township has a Transfer Station for lots of recyclables and garbage and is very reasonable. You could contact the Township at 570-992-7247 for more info.

The chestnut hill one is nice. I have unloaded some bigger items there and my father uses it for garbage drop off. It is not open every day of the week however.
