The Borough’s leaf vacuum collection program will begin on Monday, October 10th, 2016 and continue through Friday, December 9th, 2016. Days and times will vary with each neighborhood. The leaf-vac collection will start on Tuesday at the souther end of the Borough on Pikeland Avenue and work towards the north side of the Borough towards King Street. Weather permitting; the leaf vacuum unit will collect leaves on all Borough streets at once per week.
Leaves should be raked in piles into the gutter on the streets. Raked leaf piles should be under four (4) feet in length and more than two (2) feet high. Residents may also age leaves in brown yard waste bags for pick-up on Mondays each week during the leaf collection season. Bagged leaves should be placed at the curb.
The Borough also asks that residents park away from the leaf piles for safety purposes and to allow adequate room for the crews and leaf vacuum unit to make collections.
