Mayor’s Message 

June 1, 2022

Good Evening. 

I have a few reminders I’d like to share with our community. 

I’d like to thank our three local veteran organizations, the Archer Epler VFW/American Legion Post 979, American Legion Post 214 and the Marine Corps League who all held events on Memorial Day to honor those who gave their lives defending our country.  And thank you to everyone who was able to attend the services.  They are a wonderful tradition in Upper Darby.

Twice a week trash pick up begins next week on Monday, June 6th. For more information about your trash route, you can view our trash and recycling newsletter on our website, 

Yard waste is still being collected curbside on your regular recycling day. Please place yard waste in the biodegradable lawn waste bags or loosely in a trash can. Please do not use plastic bags to recycle yard waste or single-stream recycling.  

Today, June 1st marks the beginning of Pride Month nationally and here in Upper Darby.  Queer people are a vital part of our community and by acknowledging their humanity and visibility, we can lead by example as we work to guarantee equal rights for all people particularly regarding housing, education and employment and, at a basic level, to treat people the way we want to be treated.

Thank you.
