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.
