FALL LEAF COLLECTION

The Township will begin Leaf Collection operations on Monday, October 29th. Leaves will be collected based on the following schedule:

Zone 4: Weeks of October 29 and November 26
Zone 1: Weeks of November 5 and December 3
Zone 2: Weeks of November 5 and December 3
Zone 3: Weeks of November 12 and December 10
Zone 5: Weeks of November 19 and December 17

Placement of leaves at the curb or along the street at any other time or in any other manner is a violation of Township Ordinance 82. To ensure prompt collection, please make sure your leaves are at the street before the Monday of your scheduled collection week. Crews may only make one pass during your scheduled collection week. Any leaves placed curbside outside of the times specified by the Township will be the responsibility of the homeowner to have removed.

Sweeping, raking, blowing or otherwise placing leaves at the curb is only permitted seven (7) days prior to a scheduled collection. Leaf piles should be placed no further than ten (10) feet from the edge of the roadway. Collection vehicles will not leave the roadway to collect piles of leaves. Please make sure your leaves do not contain sticks, branches, tree limbs, or other debris.

Leaves should be placed at least ten (10) feet from storm drains. Leaves should be kept at least one foot from the curb to allow runoff from rain to flow freely. Please do not park vehicles close to piles. Leaves placed curbside that do not meet the strict guidelines above will not be collected. Leaves placed at the street by professional landscapers, contractors, or anyone hired by a homeowner, must be removed by them.

Township crews make every effort to adhere to the collection schedule above. However, inclement weather, breakdowns, or the volume of leaves in any given Zone may impact the Leaf Collection Schedule.

Questions should be directed to the Neighborhood Services Dept. at 609-654-6791, extensions 316 or 322.
