Per the borough, leaves should be raked into the gutter area of the street for the scheduled pickup week, to help speed up collection. In an effort to prevent damage to equipment, tree branches, shrubbery and trash will not be picked up with the leaf machine.

Residents are asked to use off-street parking on the day of their scheduled collection.

“Pursuant to Pennsylvania recycling law, leaves will no longer be picked up with regular garbage due to the fact that they are not permitted at the landfill,” the announcement said. “Leaf composting is permitted and residents are encouraged to do back yard composting.”
