ANY LEAF PILE NOT IN ACCORDANCE WITH THE POLICY SHALL BE THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE RESIDENT OR LANDOWNER

The 2017 Leaf pick up season will be conducted by policy as follows:
1. Leaf pick up usually begins in late October and every effort will be made to complete two rounds through the Township.

2. NO PLACING LEAVES ON THE ROADWAYS! Placing leaves on the road is a serious violation of the law will result in a citation.

3. Leaf pick up is aways dependent upon weather conditions and any emergency that may require the crew's focus elsewhere.

4. If you are concerned that your grass will be damaged, or that your leaves will blow back onto your lawn, you may bag your leaves.

5. You may bag leaves at any time of the year. Bagged leaves must be called in for pick up. Do not call for loose leaves!

6. Make sure that your leaves are free of sticks, limbs, rocks or other debris. We will not pick up piles mixed with other objects.
All leaf pick up will be at the discretion of the Road Department

Brush and Leaf pick ups are "courtesy services". While we are proud that we have been able to offer our residents these courtesy services, our primary liabilities and employee safety will always take precedence in our ability to continue these services.

Continued violations of the brush or leaf pick up policies may result in the discontinuation of these services. Due to the large volume of brush and leaves being brought in to the Township
by contractors, we will no longer allow contractors to dump at the Township. We are limiting dumping to Township residents only. Contractors provide a paid service and will have to find another alternative for dumping. This is in response to the number of contractors dumping leaves and brush from areas outside the Township. This will include all contracted services: lawn services, tree services, landscape services, leaf services, etc....
If you are a resident and have contracted services for brush or leaves, make sure your contractor is aware that they are responsible for removing limbs or leaves, and they are responsible to find a place other than the Township to dispose of your debris.
