4/22/2020 ***Permit Update***

Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Plum Borough  Municipal building is closed to the public.  However, to better serve the residents of Plum Borough, and in order to avoid a backlog of permit requests when the Governor’s restrictions are eventually lifted, the Borough is now accepting applications for building permits, occupancy permits and zoning certificates.  Permits will not be issued, and work may not begin on these permit requests until the construction restrictions are lifted by the Governor. Permit applications are available on the Plum Borough website. Completed applications can be dropped in the box located in the vestibule of the main entrance to the Borough Building.  If you have any questions concerning permits, please call- 412-795-6800 x 4504. 

Thank you for your patience and understanding during these difficult times.



DCED has officially extended the deadline for taxpayers to file 2019 local earned income taxes to July 15, 2020 per Act 10 of 2020.

Effective immediately, there will be some changes in the residential trash services due to the Covid-19 outbreak. 

All trash must be bagged and placed in your cart. 

Republic Services will not service any trash or yard waste outside of the containers as they try to limit exposure to their drivers during this time.  Additionally, the bulk item program pick-up at curbside will be suspended until further notice. 

We appreciate your support and understanding as we know everyone is working hard to prevent exposure during this pandemic. For questions about these changes, please call the customer service division of Republic Services at 1-800-431-1507.
