LEAF COLLECTION MACHINE REFURBISHED FOR FALL

Jefferson Gurganious, Jr. of the Newville Public Works Department has refurbished the borough’s leaf collection machine. The leaf collection machine is now ready for fall clean-up. The engine was serviced and repaired. Several parts on the machine were replaced thanks to fabrication provided by Tom Drost of Jireh Welding. A new collection hose was purchased and installed and the machine was sanded and re-painted to a safety yellow color. The work was completed at a cost of less than $2,000. The leaf collection machine is a 1996 model Giant Leaf Vac purchased by the borough from U.S. Municipal Supply in Huntington at a cost of $27,000 with a PA DEP Recycling Grant. The machine looks like new thanks to the work of Mr. Gurganious and the Department of Public Works.
