Leaf Collection

Schedule and Details:

Starting the week of October 26, 2020, Public Works Department will begin leaf collection throughout the Township. The schedule is tentative; dependent on weather conditions and the volume of leaves we need to collect. 

Status of Collection

Please follow these guidelines to ensure a successful collection:

  • One-Time Collection:  Have your leaves in neat piles along road frontage by 7am on the first day for your section. Once leaves have been picked up on your street, do not place leaves out for a second collection.  To make sure we have time for all residents leaves we cannot return to a street.
  • Prevent Equipment Damage:  Do not include rocks, sticks, trash, grass, or other material with your leaves. This does damage to the collection machine, causing downtime and expenses for repairs.
  • Private Property:  Township employees and/or equipment are not permitted to enter private property to remove leaves; only leaves on road frontage can be removed.
  • Other Options for Disposal:  Because a second collection is not possible, do not place leaves along street frontage after your leaves were collected which will impede stormwater flow. Contact your private trash hauler for collection, mulch with a lawn mower, or dispose of in the yard waste containers behind the Township office Monday through Saturday from 6am to 9pm and on Sunday from 6am to 1pm. No bags or Contractors are allowed.
