The annual collection of leaves is upon us.  When raking your leaves here are some helpful hints that will make the collection process go easier for the Borough Employees:

  • Rake your leaves only to the curb line, and not into the street.  Please be aware, piles of leaves, mulch or lawn grass which is blown, placed or pushed onto the street, is a Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) violation.  

  • Take any and all sticks or branches out of your pile and you may bag and place with your weekly trash pickup. These items clog the leaf collection machine and could damage or slow down the pickup process.

  • Try to time your raking with the week we are scheduled to come to your side, so that if it rains they do not get heavy in an uncovered pile.

  • If at all possible, don’t park near the piles so we can get the truck close to help with pickup.

To simplify the collection, the Borough is divided into two halves; from 29th St. to Park Terrace St. is designated as the west side, and from the Greenbelt to Wilhelm Road is referred to as the east side.

Week of Nov 4 West Side

Week of Nov 11 East Side

Week of Nov 18 West Side

Week of Dec. 2nd West Side and East Side
