Information on proper placement of leaves for pick up:

Rake your leaves to the curb line of the street for collection by the Borough. Please note that the Borough will not collect leaves in alleys. Leaves are collected through vacuum equipment and disposed at a recycling facility. Please keep in mind that we cannot pick-up piles of leaves with excessive quantities of sticks, stones, hedge clippings, plant materials, and other trash. These items will damage or clog the equipment or jeopardize our ability to dispose of the load at the recycling facility.

Detailed information for Leaf collection:

Collections will alternate each week between east and west sections of the Borough. Rake your leaves out to the street by Monday of the scheduled collection week; remember that once the crew has passed your street they will not return until the next scheduled collection time. Rain could possibly delay pick-up as wet leaves clog the vacuum machine.

Earth Day – 2019 Community Clean Up- THANK YOU!!!

Written by nucitrus on . Posted in Front Page, News

Approximately 65 volunteers gathered on Saturday April 27th to participate in the community clean up.

Earth Day began in 1970 to create awareness for the Earth’s environment. Earth Day is celebrated annually on April 22.

Souderton Borough volunteers worked together on Saturday, April 27, 2019 in the Souderton Community Park, the Souderton Pool, the Clock, Borough Building and Chestnut St Park. Volunteers helped beautify the town by raking leaves, picking up trash, weeding the beds, and spreading mulch to enhance the community for upcoming gatherings.

The event started at 9 am. After working hard from 9 am to 12 noon volunteers were treated to lunch. Participants were excited to find that lunch was provided by The Burger Shop of Main Street, Souderton. The beverages were donated by Jim and Martha Leary of Souderton.

Several groups volunteered including Moyer Indoor/Outdoor, Univest, Indian Valley Democrats, and the Souderton Charter School Collaborative. In addition to the groups of volunteers there were several local residents, borough staff, borough councilors, and Mayor John Reynolds.

The Borough would like to say thank you to the many volunteers for their hard work in making the town look so great. A special thank you to The Burger Shop and Jim and Martha Leary for their gifts of great food and drinks.

Below are some pictures of the event.
