DUPONT — Borough Council unanimously agreed Tuesday to initiate single-stream recycling next year.

Every Wednesday, beginning Jan. 1, 2014, residents will be able to leave their recyclables out for a single collection each week.

In other matters, Councilman Stanley Golembiewski agreed with several residents’ complaints about the recently opened Continental Bar and Grille on Main Street.

While some in attendance claimed the bar is a consistent source of noise each Saturday, many said noise levels and customer behavior was excessive this past Saturday.

Amaury Oliveira, the owner of the establishment, acknowledged the complaints and said he has limited control over patrons once they leave the bar’s premises. He did, however, pledge to increase security to ensure the peace of the community.

Mayor Daniel Lello urged concerned residents to call 911 when they are unable to contact borough police and said officers from neighboring municipalities will respond if Dupont officers are detained.

Also on Tuesday, borough officials reminded the public of the borough’s annual Party in the Park, featuring refreshments and activities. The party will be 1 to 9 p.m. Aug. 24 at the park across from the borough building on Chestnut Street.

The next council meeting is set for 7 p.m. Sept. 10.
