Leaf Collection

The Township provides leaf collection during the fall season through the first week of December, unless snow falls prior to the scheduled end date. Residents should place their leaves in the street along the curb line. Placing leaves in uniform sized rows along the curb as opposed Leaf Collectionto placing them in big piles, expedites the collection process because the units can continue to move forward as they are collect the leaves. Big piles of leaves are more time consuming to collect.

The crews will continue to rotate throughout the Township during the collection period. Specific collection dates cannot be set due to unforeseen weather conditions, equipment breakdowns and staffing levels. If heavy rains are predicted, we suggest you wait until after the storm passes to put your leaves in the street. Leaf piles could prevent the flow of storm water and clog storm drains.
