Yard Waste Policy

Due to changes in the Mayfield Borough garbage contract in 2006 residents should note that all yard waste such as leaves, grass, weeds, and branches will be collected each Tuesday by borough employees. These items are to ble bagged or placed in a container free of other items.  If garbage or other non biodegradable items are included, the watse will be left at the curb.  Please do not place the containers for collection out on the curb earlier than Monday evening.

Garbage Collection Policy

Monday collection of household garbage is limited to three 32 gallon garbage bags or a comparable three can limit for each household per week. Tires are no longer accepted. One bulk item or one appliance which does not contain freon will be collected weekly.  All residents are asked to please refrain from placing garbage out on the curb prior to Sunday afternoon. 

Recycling Policy

All residents are encouraged to participate in the Lackawanna County Recycling Program.  If you are new to Mayfield or do not currently participate in the recycling program, you can obtain a recycling container from the borough building during normal business hours.  Recyclables are collected on Monday morning along with the garbage collection.  Residents are encouraged to recycle cans, glass, plastic, paper, and cardboard.  Please rinse all containers and bundle papers and cardboard.  For a complete "how to" please visit the Lackawanna County Recycling Center website:

Mayfield Borough Stormwater Information

Residents of Mayfield can obtain stormwater pamphlets containing information on how local stormwater impacts the Chesapeake Bay. These pamphlets are available at the borough office. In addition, any group or business interested in displaying a stormwater poster can request a copy of one of four posters which depict how everyday activities can affect local waters which ultimately flow into the Chesapeake Bay. We do not often consider how things such as car washing, leaking oil, fertilizer, and animal wastes flow into catch basins and waterways that feed the Lackawanna River, Susquehanna River, and then into the Bay. Read the information and become stormwater aware! For more information go to:
