The Highway Department crew collects leaves in all residential subdivisions each Autumn. The collection starts in the middle of October and ends December 15th (earlier if there is too much snow) each year. There is no set schedule and no set pattern. They will get to your property as soon as possible and calling the Township Office will not speed up the process.
However, rural area residents (this would include any property not in a residential subdivision such as Farming Ridge, Hunter's Run, Sunrise, etc.) should call the Township Office and let us know that you have leaves at the street line for our pick up.
The leaves must be raked to the street line and may not include branches or other debris. Branches and debris, such as steel, bricks, etc. (which has been mixed uncovered) causes substantial damage to our equipment and poses danger to our employees.
The Highway Department crew collects brush, curbside, twice per year over a two-week period. The collections take place roughly mid-May and late-October each year (check the website or newsletter for the dates). Residents can request to have their brush picked up at the curb by calling (610) 779-5660 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org to make a reservation a week before the pick up is scheduled.
Residents are asked to have their brush at the curb by 7am. Brush must be cut into lengths about 4 feet long, no larger than 4 inches in diameter, and bundled together with twine in sizes that can be picked up by one person. Please do not put brush into plastic bags or use plastic bag strips to tie bundles.
The brush is taken to the Trout Run Recycling Center to be ground up for mulch that is available free for residents. Did you know you could take the brush there yourself? See the brush depository page for more information.
