Tionesta Borough Curbside Recycling Program

Tionesta Borough is implementing a Curbside Recycling Pickup Program that is slated to begin in September, 2018. There will be no charge for this service at this time. Those interested in participating in the pickup program must contact the office (814-755-3502) so we can order enough Recycling Carts and get them delivered. September through December 2018 is a “Test Period”. If there is enough interest we will continue the program into 2019. Cindy Crytzer, Borough Manager

June 23, 2108 – Electronic Recycling Day – 10:00 am to 2:00 pm – behind the Borough Building. Some items are free others require a fee to dispose of the item. Please click here for a list of items.

INCOME SURVEY FOR ELIGIBILITY DETERMINATION FOR GRANT FUNDS FOR BOROUGH WATER PROJECT: Tionesta Borough has authorized The EADS Group to complete an income survey for households located on Elm Street between Irwin Street and Highland Street to hopefully qualify this area for grant funding through Forest County’s Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) Program to replace this section of the Borough’s water distribution system.

The Borough is applying for grant money from the County to complete this water project and the application is due by September 30, 2016, so time is “of the essence”. Residents affected by the proposed project must fill out a survey in order to determine if the project is eligible for funding. NOT responding to the survey will reduce the probability of the Borough securing the funding for the project.


Tionesta Borough and The EADS Group, Inc. consider the confidentiality of the survey results to be of the utmost importance. The survey results will be reviewed and collated by The EADS Group, Inc. The information will be used exclusively for the Borough to qualify for Forest County CDBG Program funding.

If you have any questions about the survey, please contact either Tracey Frampton from The EADS Group, Inc. at 814/764-5050 or Colleen M. Call, Borough Administrator, Tionesta Borough at 814/755-3502.

The EADS Group plan to start the income survey Thursday evening (9/15/16), Friday and/or over the weekend.

Thank you for your assistance with this matter.

TIONESTA BOROUGH RESIDENTS – NOTICE OF SMOKE TESTING OF SEWERS: The Tionesta Municipal Authority has contracted Pipe-Eye Sewer Services, Inc. to conduct smoke testing of sanitary sewers in your area on Monday, September 14th through Wednesday, September 16th. This testing will assist in locating defects within the sanitary sewer system in the Borough. During testing you may see smoke escaping from vent stacks on buildings or from holes in the ground. Don’t be alarmed.This smoke is non-toxic, non-staining and does not create a fire hazard. The smoke will dissipate within minutes. Prior to testing, please pour water into any basement floor drains and any other unused drains or sinks. This will help to seal the drain trap so the smoke will not enter your building. If smoke should enter your building during the test, it may mean that there are plumbing defects, which could allow DANGEROUS SEWER GAS to enter your building. Open doors and windows to ventilate any smoke that enters the building.

Please notify our crews prior to testing if any of the following situations exist:

• Any pets that may be confined alone in the building.
• Any person who would be alone and is an invalid or sleeping.
• Elderly persons alone or who may become confused if they see smoke.
• Any person with respiratory problems who may be in the building.

If you have any of these situations or any other questions concerning the smoke tests, call either of the two Borough office numbers 814/755-3441 or 814/755-3502 or Pipe-Eye Sewer Services (Kerry Roslinski) @ 814/366-3950.
