First and foremost, all contractor companies doing work in the Town of Landis have a responsibility to take important steps to keep the public safe while near the worksite. To do so, the construction company may have to take several steps including posting signs, removing debris, and placing barriers around the worksite.

All contractors completing work in town are responsible for removing all debris, construction materials and waste from the worksite. Construction debris does not qualify for curbside pickup.
