A few things to keep in mind before you start the chore of leaf raking:

  • Do not rake leaves into flower beds and/or landscaped areas.Leaf collecting equipment has a very powerful suction which may vacuum landscape materials and/or plants.Rather, rake to the back of the curb avoiding placement on the street as the leaves are scattered by traffic and accumulate in storm drains causing blockage.

  • Bagged leaves are not accepted and will be left behind.

  • The leaves are recycled into compost.Please do not include anything other than leaves in your pile for collection.You are not required to participate in the Borough’s leaf collection program if you are able to dispose of your leaves following Pennsylvania’s DEP suggestions and obey their regulations.

  • Currently the leaf collection program is scheduled to end on Friday, December 1, 2017.However, during the end of the scheduled leaf removal season, winter storm events may require our leaf collecting equipment to be switched over to winter maintenance equipment.The leaf collecting season may be terminated without any advance notice and will not be reinstated until the following year.

Every effort is made to adhere to the collection schedule as shown above.  Please do not contact the Public Works Department regarding any missed pick-ups or to schedule a special pick-up.
