Leaf Collection

Leaf collection is available by two methods; biodegradable bagged leaves and curbside collection. All leaf waste must be separated from other household refuse as mandated by Pennsylvania Act 101 and Local Ordinance 402.  The burning of leaves is prohibited.

Curbside Collection
Loose leaves should be placed curbside for collection as early as possible, and during collection weeks must be placed curbside by 7:00 a.m. Monday morning. Leaves are to be left on the edge of the property and not in the street. Do not place stones, branches or brush in leaf piles.

Bagged Leaves/ Yard Waste Collection
Republic Services will collect biodegradable leaf bags every Wednesday from April- December.  Biodegradable bags are available for purchase at the Township Building, three (3) for $1.00 or a bundle of 50 for $16.00. Since bag costs are partially paid for by tax dollars, this offer is extended to Township residents only and proof of residency may be required. Leaves placed in plastic or seasonal pumpkin bags will not be collected.

Leaf Mulch
Leaf compost is available at no charge to residents and can be picked-up during business hours. The leaf compost available comes from the Township’s collection of residential loose leaves. Leaf mulch is an eco-friendly way to provide nutrients to vegetable and flower beds as well as spread at the base of a tree. For more information, please contact the public works department at 215-947-3100.
