Safety Reminder - Refrigerators

Residents are reminded that it is a violation of the Pennsylvania Crimes Code (Title 18, Section 6502) to discard a refrigerator or icebox, with a capacity of 1.5 cubic feet or more, with the door or lid still attached, in any place that is accessible to children.  The SCCRPD has investigated four violations of this law in recent weeks.  With warmer weather upon us, more children will be playing outside and these appliances can make tempting hiding spots. We ask for your cooperation and compliance so that tragedy can be avoided. Remove doors and lids if setting these or any large appliance outside and contact your municipality or waste management provider for prompt pickup.
