Public Works

 

 Snow Removal Information

All Borough and State roadways within the Borough are plowed and salted by Hatboro Borough. You can help in our efforts to clear the roads as quickly as possible by parking your car in a driveway or another (permitted) off-road location. And when shoveling your driveway, please remember to pile snow to the right of the driveway (if you are facing the street). In this way, the snow will be pushed away from the driveway entrance when the road is plowed.

For questions concerning snow removal please call Borough Hall at 215-443-9100. During a snow storm, our Public Works Department works to clear streets and keep Borough roads safe and passable. The staff at Borough Hall can answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding snow removal, plowing information, and other information.

Sidewalks

Borough Ordinance requires all sidewalks to be cleared within twenty-four (24) hours after a snowfall. This is applied to all property owners, tenants and lessors. Also, please note it is unlawful to push snow into the street while clearing sidewalks, private walkways, and/or driveways.

Vehicles
Only vehicles with chains, snow tires or all-purpose tires are permitted on roads that are covered with three or more inches of snow or in any instances in which a snow emergency is declared. Any vehicle that has stalled, is incapable of moving under its own power and/or is left unattended on any street during a snow storm will be removed or towed at the owner's expense.

Snow Emergency

If a Snow Emergency is declared in Hatboro, no vehicles are permitted to remain parked on the following streets:

Byberry Road
E. County Line Road
W. County Line Road
Horsham Road
Jacksonville Road
E. Montgomery Avenue (Between N. York Rd. and Jacksonville Rd.)
W. Moreland Avenue
E. Moreland Avenue (between York Rd. and Jacksonville Rd.)
S. Penn Street
N. Warminster Road
S. Warminster Road
N. York Road
S. York Road

During a declared snow emergency, vehicles operating on any streets in the Borough must be equipped with snow rated tires or chains.

 

Free Mulch For Residents

Have you ever wondered what happens to the leaf bags and sticks you place curbside for collection? After our Public Works employees pick them up, the bags are transported to Abington Township's composting site where they are processed into mulch without added chemicals.

In an attempt to bring your recycling efforts full circle, the Borough is making this mulch available to Hatboro Residents free of charge. To make this mulch easily accessible to residents, the Public Works Department has constructed a temporary bin at Eaton Park (located off West Moreland Avenue, across from the Memorial Pool).

Residents are welcome to stop by the bin at any time to take as much mulch as they need. The Public Works Department will make every effort to keep an adequate supply on hand at all times. Unfortunately, we are not able to load trucks with mulch at this time. Please note that mulch is available on a first come, first serve basis. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Borough Hall.

Recycling

The Borough of Hatboro offers single stream recycling, meaning recyclable items can be comingled when placed curbside for collection.

Hatboro is now recycling plastic. Items such as plastic soda and milk bottles, laundry detergent, fabric softener, dish soap bottles, and cooking oil bottles, to name a few, can now be placed in the same bin as the other glass and can recycling items. If the plastic item has a number 1 through 7, or a recycling symbol on it, the item is recyclable and can be placed your recycling container for collection. Lids for plastic containers must be removed, and we do not accept plastic toys and plastic hoses.

Please do not place broken glass, window glass, light bulbs, mirrors, porcelain, ceramics, blue glass, styrofoam, plastic bags, food, hoses or wires, paint cans or aerosol cans in your recycling container.

Newspapers, computer paper, cardboard, cereal boxes, junk mail, magazines and catalogues will also be collected on your scheduled recycling day. These items may be comingled with other recyclable items when placed curbside for collection. Newspapers can also be tied or placed into paper shopping bags.

All boxes must be broken down and tied. Do not include wax paper, foil, wax-coated boxes or plastic bags with your recycling. Tied items must not be thicker than 16 inches, and must not be longer or wider than 36 inches.

Traffic Safety Advisory Program

The Hatboro Police Department has launched a new program to help deal with issues concerning traffic law violators. In addition to our officers diligently investigating reports of traffic problems and issuing citations to offenders when appropriate, the police department has now made it easier for residents to report specific traffic law violators.

Our new Traffic Safety Advisory Program is designed to assist the department in locating areas where drivers are violating our traffic laws. The accompanying form may be electronically submitted or delivered to the police department, to the attention of the Chief of Police. The data collected on these forms will be entered into a database to help the department track trends in traffic law violations. This data, combined with traffic accident statistics and enforcement statistics, will aid the department in the deployment of our officers to address specific needs regarding traffic safety.

As a reminder, please never confront a motorist for violating traffic laws. Rather, safely obtain a description of the vehicle and driver, using the form as a guide, and report the matter to police utilizing the form. Of course, you may always call the department if you would like to meet with one of our officers.

Please drive safely!
