LEAF COLLECTION:

Leaves are collected from October to the week of December 16, weather permitting, throughout the Township as follows:
Monday          Southwest
Tuesday          Southeast
Wednesday    Northeast
Thursday       Northwest

These are the scheduled days; however, the Public Works crew tries to get ahead as much as possible, so you may see your pile being picked up ahead of schedule. Keep in mind, they will be around again on the scheduled pickup day as well. With that being said, please be vigilant with putting your leaves on the curb, as the crew will do everything possible to pick them up as soon as they are ready to be picked up.

Please be sure that there are no bags, sticks, or twigs in your pile as these materials will damage the Township equipment.
