Leaf Collection

Leaf collection schedule

Fall 2016

Yes, it is that time of the year to dust off those leaf blowers and lawn rakes and tidy up the lawn. Fall leaf collection will begin October 10, 2016, and will continue through December 15. The Public Works Crew will collect leaves once each week through the scheduled section of the Borough until collection ends.

Leaves are collected curbside on the schedule below. Crews will not collect leaves from alleys unless a property has no street frontage.

After December 15, leaves must be placed in your organics cart for collection.


  • Leaves should be raked to within 5 feet of the curb and should be ready for collection by 7 a.m. each Monday.
  • Keep leaves away from any poles, trees or signs and please refrain from blowing or raking leaves into the street as they can clog storm drains and lead to flooding.
  • Do not place leaves in bags for this seasonal collection.
  • Please make sure that leaves are free of brush, glass, cans, rocks or other debris, as these items may cause injury to workers and damage to the collection equipment. Foreign objects and debris mixed in with leaves also add contaminates to our compost feed stock, potentially affecting the finished product.
