Welcome to the official website of the Borough of Highspire, Highspire Pennsylvania. We are located in Dauphin County just 6 miles south of Harrisburg. The 2010 Census recorded the Borough's population at 2,399 residents. We invite you to visit our friendly community and enjoy our small town atmosphere.



Due to weather related issues Republic Services trash and recycling collection has been cancelled for Friday, January 29, 2016.

The next trash collection will occur on Friday, February 5, 2016. 

Borough crews are continuing to focus on plowing/clearing residential streets and alleys. The goal is to get all of them completed by Tuesday night but it may take until Wednesday for some sections given the amount of snowfall and roadway conditions.

We ask for your patience as we recover from this massive storm.
