WOODBINE — Borough Council recently awarded a $390,000 5-year contract for trash and recycling collection.

Blue Diamond Disposal of Woodbine will handle the two services for Woodbine.

“We are particularly pleased that this is the beginning of single-stream collection for the Borough. Starting on Jan. 6, 2014, both trash and recycling will be collected on Mondays,” Mayor William Pikolycky said. “While trash and recycling must be separated, there will now only be the need to set out cans one day a week. This will result in a cost savings to the Borough and also be more convenient for our residents.”
