  • NO BAGS OF ANY KIND will be collected.
  • Pile leaves and grass neatly at the curb NOT to obstruct traffic in the street.
  • Do NOT mix debris with leaves such as rocks, wood, branches, etc.
  • Leaves should NOT be piled around fire hydrants, light poles, signs, trees, etc.
  • Do NOT place leaves within ten (10) feet of either side of a storm drain.
  • Vehicles parked in the street prevent us from working along the curb and collecting your leaves.

  • Leaves will be continually picked up until December 8th. The leaves MUST be at the curb by December 4th.
  • Any leaves left at the curb beyond December 11th are in violation of Borough Ordinance #830-2006 and you will be subject to a fine.

During leaf season, NO BRANCHES will be collected. If there is a need for branches to be stacked, they must be kept on your property as placing them in the street is in violation of Borough Ordinance #830-2006. Chipping will resume mid December, weather permitting.,
