Note: The following information is from a Borough of Hellertown news release.
The Borough of Hellertown has announced that it will conduct a community-wide, curbside yard waste collection during the week of June 20, 2016.
Collections will generally follow the weekly trash collection schedule.
Residents having yard waste for collection should place it at their normal collection location the evening before their usual trash pick-up date. All yard waste for collection should be clearly separated from garbage, bundled with string, bagged or contained and of reasonable weight so it can safely be lifted by an employee into the collection truck hopper.
Only the following material, free of garbage, will be accepted:
- Small brush (up to 4 inches in diameter and no longer than 6 feet)
- Hedge trimmings
- Garden plant residue
NO grass, sod, tree stumps or commercial business yard waste materials will be accepted. For safety reasons, yard waste that is not bundled, bagged or contained, or is too heavy for an individual to lift into the truck will not be collected.
The Saucon Valley Compost Center at 2011 Springtown Hill Road, Hellertown, is also open to receive yard waste.
The Center is open Fridays and Saturdays from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. (except Nov. 25) through Nov. 26, 2016, with the addition of night hours on Wednesdays, June 8, July 13, Aug. 10 and Sept. 14, 2016, from 6 to 8 p.m.
The center is a joint project of the Borough and Lower Saucon Township, and is available to residents of both communities. Compost center ID cards are available to residents during regular business hours at Hellertown Borough Hall, 685 Main St., Hellertown, and Lower Saucon Town Hall, 3700 Old Philadelphia Pike, Bethlehem.
