The Wellsboro Borough Council has announced that the Community-wide Yard Sale will be on Friday and Saturday, Oct. 15 and 16 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day and that Fall Cleanup Week is Monday, Oct. 18 through Friday, Oct. 22.

The permit fee is waived for those who choose to participate in the Community-wide Yard Sale. Area merchants will be offering clearance items at special sidewalk sale events. Area residents, non-profit organizations, churches and youth groups are invited to participate by holding private yard sales at their homes or facilities in Wellsboro Borough on Oct. 15 and 16.

Acceptable items that can be left at curbside for collection during cleanup week are: leaves and lawn rakings in bags; trash; old lumber and boards less than five feet long; old furniture (mattresses must be wrapped completely in plastic and taped shut or they will not be picked up); and only two old tires per household. Brush, small tree limbs cut into three-foot lengths and tree clippings must be bagged or bundled. Depending on size, NTSWA may choose to not pick up brush. Items must be left on the front curb and will be picked up on residents’ regular garbage collection day but at an earlier time. 

Borough residents can dispose of leaves and grass or shrub clippings at the compost bin at the Borough Garage at 233 Old Tioga Street. Larger branches and logs can be disposed of at the Borough’s compost area at 11 Wheatley Ballfield Park Lane off Meade Street. To use the Meade Street area, residents must pick up and return the key to the Borough Office at 14 Crafton Street. 

Items not accepted during cleanup week are: Demolition and construction materials, scrap metal, refrigerators and AC units (anything with Freon) and electronic devices. 

Those items are accepted at the Northern Tier Solid Waste Authority's Tiadaghton Area Transfer Station at 10455 Route 6, Wellsboro. For hours, information and pricing or to possibly schedule an extra pick up at the resident’s cost, call 570-724-0145.

Electronic devices, including televisions ($30 each), monitors ($30 each), computers ($10 each), computer keyboards, mice, cables ($2 each) and desktop printers ($10 each) are accepted for recycling at NTSWA’s Blossburg location at 540 Old Bloss Road Blossburg, PA 16912  or at the Troy location at 108 Steam Hollow Road, Troy, PA 16947. There is a limit of five devices per appointment. Only credit or debit cards will be accepted for payment. Pre-register at or schedule an appointment by calling 570-297-4177 ext. 24 between 9 a.m. to noon on Wednesdays only.
