Leaf collection occurs October through the second week of December. Due to weather conditions, the dates may vary.
Leaf Collection Guidelines
- Curbside leaf piles are to be 12 inches high and 18 inches wide.
- Do not mix limbs, brush, and other debris with leaf piles, as such items may cause damage to collection equipment and injury to township personnel.
- Adverse weather conditions may cause delays.
- Township employees and/or equipment are not permitted to enter private property to remove leaves.
- Once the leaf machine has passed it will not return until items on every street in the township has been collected.
- If your residence is located on the corner of the street, please place the leaves to be picked up at least 25 feet from the intersection.
- If you live on a private street in the township we will pick up your leaves, but they must be bagged. Since most of the private streets in the township have narrow widths, we cannot take the leaf machines down those roadways and safely turn the machine around. Once you have the leaves bagged, please call the township office at 610-631-0450 and schedule the pickup.
