Important Notices Regarding COVID-19:

Recycling Information: Mansfield Borough is pleased to announce that we are restarting recycling services. Northern Tier Solid Waste Authority will provide recycling containers at the Mansfield High School parking lot for drop-off recycling. The site will be open and available Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. and Saturdays from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. through the month of May. We ask that residents north of Route 6 come on Tuesdays and those south of Route 6 come on Thursdays. If you cannot make it on weekdays due to work commitments, please come Saturdays. We are expecting a large amount of materials early in the month, so we would ask that anyone who can wait until later in the month does so. We will have to close the service if the containers get too full on a particular day. When dropping off recycling, please wear a face covering and maintain six feet of social distancing. Please do not leave trash at the site. When dropping off recyclables, please enter at the Smythe Park entrance and exit onto Route 6 in front of the school.

Borough Office Information: The Mansfield Borough Office will be closed to the public temporarily due to the COVID-19 outbreak. Please deposit any payments and parking tickets in the drop box. If you need to discuss any matters with Borough staff, please call the office at 570-662-2315. We apologize for the inconvenience and we will resume normal operations as soon as possible.

Garbage Stickers: In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, Mansfield Borough has secured another option for the purchase of garbage stickers. Garbage stickers are currently available at Sara Jo’s Stop And Go at 33 West Wellsboro Street for the normal price. Garbage collection is an essential service and will continue as usual. Please also be advised that Northern Tier Solid Waste Authority has temporarily suspended curbside recycling. The Borough will notify residents when recycling resumes. Like us on Facebook for continual updates. Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work through this unprecedented time.”
