Port Allegany Borough will be hosting a Community Clean Up Day on Saturday, June 20, 2015

Port Allegany Borough – Update

Port Allegany Borough will be hosting a Community Clean Up Day on Saturday, June 20, 2015 from 8:00 AM – Noon. Borough residents will have the opportunity to dispose of unwanted items in a dumpster that will be available at the Borough Offices during this time. There will be a $20 fee for each car or pick-up truck load a resident wants to dispose of, and the fee must be paid by June 17, 2015. Paint cans can only be accepted if they are empty, if the paint is dried, or if cat litter is stirred into the paint until dry. Other items that cannot be disposed of include tires, liquids of any kind, barrels (unless both ends are removed), refrigerators, and AC units.

The borough will also be offering Electronics Disposal during the Community Clean Up Day. Borough residents can dispose of computers, DVD players, game consoles, and TVs under 27” for $10 each and can dispose of TVs or computer monitors over 27” for $15 each. The fee for electronics disposal must also be paid by June 17, 2015. 

During the Community Clean Up Day, the Borough is asking community groups or volunteers to consider adopting a street or a park to clean up. Any group who volunteers to participate in this program can get free garbage bags from the Borough and can dispose of the garbage they collect free of charge at the dumpsters provided for Community Clean Up Day. Volunteer groups are asked to complete and return an Adopt a Street or Park Volunteer Form to the Borough Office by June 17th. Forms are available at the Borough Office or by calling (814) 642-2526 or visiting the Borough website.

The Public Works Crew is asking Borough residents to trim trees or bushes that hang out over the road or block street signs. Brush that is removed from these trees and/or bushes can be placed on the curb for pick-up and disposal. In a few weeks, any trees or bushes that haven’t been trimmed by home owners will be trimmed by the public works crew. When possible, homeowners should try to trim these trees and bushes themselves to ensure they are done the way the homeowner would like. 

Port Allegany Borough has recently launched a new website where residents can get information about the Borough, its departments, and other resources. The website is still a work in process and we would appreciate your thoughts on how we can make it better. Visit us at Be sure to check out the News and Events page to learn about upcoming events in town. 

A few of the upcoming events include: 

Fun Day on the Square sponsored by the Port Allegany Main Street Committee which starts June 2nd at 6:00 PM and will run each Tuesday all Summer, 

Concerts on the Square sponsored by the Port Allegany Women’s Club start June 4th and will run each Thursday all Summer, and 

McKean County Care for Children will be sponsoring a Bicycle and Summer Safety Event at the Town Square from 11:00 AM – 1:00 PM on June 11th.

The Borough would also like to thank residents and visitors for their patience and understanding during the bridge construction project and the few temporary detours we have had recently. Our bridges and roads are key infrastructure, and these types of projects are vital to the future of our community.
