WHERE PEOPLE COME FIRST

LEAF COLLECTION TO BEGIN MID-OCTOBER

The Township will begin collecting leaves in mid-October and will continue until at least Nov. 23, 2016, the day before Thanksgiving, weather permitting. Residents are asked to rake leaves into the street, a foot or so away from the curb or edge of pavement. Piles should not exceed three feet in height and four feet in width. Piles that contain tree branches or any other debris WILL NOT BE PICKED UP until the debris is removed. Debris damages equipment, and repairs are costly.

Residents are also asked to park vehicles or trailers in their driveways. If it is not possible to park in your driveway, a vehicle or trailer should be parked away from the leaf piles. It is also imperative that contractors not place a pile of gravel or other material on a roadway which obstructs the collection of leaves. Leaf piles blocked by vehicles or contractor material will not be picked up until the following week, providing the obstruction has been moved.

Leaves which are raked into the street after the equipment has passed will not be picked up until the following week. If you use a landscaper to remove leaves from your property, please advise them of the collection schedule and require them to adhere to collection policies.

Once leaf collection commences in Mid-October, the schedule below will be followed. Delays in the posted schedule may occur due to weather events. Crews will not be collecting leaves on November 11 due to the Veteran’s Day holiday.
