Leaf Collection

A map and tentative schedule is published in early fall. The schedule will be adjusted based on weather conditions and how many leaves are falling. Residents should have their leaves curbside for collection by Monday of the scheduled week.

Leaf collection can be a dusty proposition. Residents are urged to keep car windows rolled up and park in the driveway to limit any pesky dust problems.

Please don’t begin raking leaves to the curb until the week before your scheduled collection. This prevents safety hazards caused by clogged storm sewers or fires from parking cars on the leaf pile.

If crews are available, they may be in your area early. But don’t worry; we’ll be back in the areas as scheduled to get your leaves.

QUESTION: Why is the leaf collection crew in my neighborhood when it is not my collection week?  
ANSWER:Each morning our leaf crews begin in the designated weekly section.  If all leaves on that day have been collected in the designated section they will move onto other sections in an effort to get ahead.  The next day the leaf crews will return back to the designated section per the schedule and start all over again.  This scenario usually happens early in the leaf season when collection is light.  As the leaves continue to fall, it is important to get your leaves curbside by the start of the week.  When leaf collection is heavy our truck will unlikely pass your house more than once in a week.  In this case it won’t be back until the next collection week.

  • DO NOT mix limbs, brush and other debris with leaf piles since such items may cause damage to the collection equipment and injury to Township personnel. Mixed Piles will not be collected.
  • Leaves will not be collected with your regular trash collection.Trash with leaves co-mingled will not be collected.
  • Adverse weather conditions may cause delays in leaf collection dates.
  • Once the leaf collection machine has passed it will not return until the next scheduled collection.
  • Township employees and/or equipment are not permitted to enter private property to remove leaves.
  • Property owners are encouraged to start their own compost piles.
