Trash & Recycling Service: This service is required to be obtained by every residence and business within the municipality. Detailed information regarding this requirement can be found in Chapter 463 of the Code section on our website. Borough Council advertises for bids and awards the contract for collection to the lowest bidder ensuring the best service for the lowest cost. The most current contract has been awarded to Tri-County Industries, Inc. During the bidding process, Council negotiates additional curb-side services like leaf pick up and Household Hazardous Waste & Electronic Waste Collection.

Rental Inspections: Owning any property other than your personal residence is known as owning a Non-Owner Occupied Property. The Borough of Greenville requires all properties of this distinction to complete and submit the necessary form and have an inspection on an annual basis. Non-Owner Occupied Property Inspection Application

Sewer Lateral Inspection: Prior to any change in ownership, a sewer lateral inspection is required for every residential and commercial structure. After the lateral passes the inspection, a certificate will be issued valid for a two year period. The inspection is completed by running a camera from the structure to the main line. This provides assurance that the lateral is functioning properly and is void of any unauthorized infiltration into our sanitary system. The fee for the inspection is based on the type of structure. Sewer Lateral Inspection Form

Storm Water Utility Fee: This annual fee will be assessed on every parcel that contains any impervious surface. Examples of impervious surfaces include buildings, driveways, parking lots, sidewalks, and any other improvements that water cannot absorb into naturally. The rain and snow/ice melt that runs off of these surfaces creates an increased demand on the storm water infrastructure. Without regular maintenance, the system deteriorates to the point of failure. By assessing this fee on all parcels, the necessary funds can be collected to properly maintain the system. For more detailed information regarding this fee and how it is calculated, please visit the Public Services Department on our website. → more

Tree Limbs: Greenville’s Public Works department offers tree limb chipper service on the last Monday of the month. Call the Borough office to be placed on the list.
