Frankintown Borough is not afforded door to door mail delivery. This results in much confusion as the mailing addresses are different from the actual physical location of the properties. Any rural route in Franklintown Borough will require Dillsburg PA 17019 to receive delivery. If you are not lucky enough to live on a rural route a PO Box is required. The smallest size Box does not have a fee with proof of residency. However, if your mail exceeds the box frequently or the box is not emptied causing it to overflow the Post Office can require you to pay to rent a larger box. The mailing address depends on the location of the PO Box you rent. Below is a document to assist you in your new address. There is also a Constituent Form should you have any issues.
For those that have a PO Box Please complete the USPS form for new residents below and take to the Post Office if you have not done so at rental. Make sure to list children and adults so packages from Grandma don't get returned.
When possible list your address like so: 116 S. Baltimore St.
PO Box 88
Franklintown PA 17323.
If the company only has 1 address line and won't take a PO Box list your address like this: 116 S. Baltimore St. #88
Franklintown PA 17323.
When looking for a package please check the delivery method the company is using and contact that company for issues.

Our contract provides each pickup the ability to place 1 large item to the curb for pickup per week.
The pickup for large items is always the same day as curbside trash and recycling pickup.
It is important to make the Borough Office aware that you are putting out a large item. They need to advise the trash to pick it up and determine if the item needs to be broken down.
For Dumpster customers - do not place your large items in or near the dumpster. They will be missed and cause issues with the dumpster pickup the next day.
