Yard Waste and Leaves

The most environmentally correct way to dispose of yard waste is to utilize the borough’s collection program.

Branch chipping is performed April through October, on the first and third weeks of the month.  Tuesday is the preferred collection day at this time, but that may change due to weather or scheduling conflicts.

 

The borough’s website has full details.

Curbside leaf collection occurs annually.

  • Only leaves will be collected. Grass clippings, twigs and other yard waste will not be collected.
  • Leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper yard waste bags.
  • Bags must be curbside for collection.
