Leaf Collection

Collection Guidelines

  • Brush, grass and shrubbery clippings are not to be mixed with leaves. Grass and shrubbery clippings are required to be bagged for weekly garbage collection. Branches must be cut to 4 foot lengths and bundled. Waste Management, the Borough waste collection hauler, will not pick up branches unless this is done. The Borough will only pick up branches after a storm.
  • Leaves are to be raked to the curb line, and not in the street. Placing leaves in the street can cause sewer backup and entice children to play in the leaves on the street, which creates a dangerous situation.
  • Leaves should not be put into bags.
  • Leaves that are not put out for collection during the Borough's Spring and Fall Collection posted dates will have to be bagged at all other times of the year.
  • Fall Leaf Collection begins on Monday, September 23 through Friday, November 22 weather permitting.
