Leaf and Leaf Waste Collection

2014/2015 Leaf Collection Guidelines and Dates

Leaves will be collected in the 2014/2015 season by Republic Services.

Bagged leaf and bundled minor branch trimmings will be collected on the fourth Wednesday of every month, with an additional collection on the second Wednesday of October, November, December, January and April.

For the contract period beginning in the fall of 2014, the additional collection dates are October 8, November 12, December 10. The second collection in December 2014 is Wednesday, December 24th.
In early 2015 the additional dates will be January 14, 2015, and April 8, 2015.

The January collections can included Christmas trees and wreaths that are free of decorations and tinsel.

NOTE: The entire Township will be collected on these dates. The Township is no longer divided into sections. Inclement weather will not change the schedule. If your pickup is missed, you must call the Township the day of collection at 610-277-2400. This program is not available to private communities.

Leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper bags and put out at the curb the evening before your scheduled collection date to ensure they will be picked up. Bags should not weigh more than 40 pounds and should not contain trash or other waste. Bags can be purchased at the Township Building for 3/$1 from 8:30 a.m. - 4 p.m., Monday through Friday.

Leaf waste includes leaves, shrubbery and minor tree trimmings in biodegradable paper bags or containers, bundled shrubs or plants, excluding dirt, under four (4') feet in length and tied tree branches under three (3") inches in diameter and under four (4") feet in length. Grass clippings are excluded.

Do not place bagged leaf and branch trimmings in plastic bags. The will not be collected.
