The 2017 Township Fall leaf collection begins on Monday, October 16 in developments and other areas where the road crew can work safely. Leaves can also be dropped at the organic matter disposal site on Point Road in South Heidelberg Township.
Only leaves should be placed in the street, as we will not pick up leaf piles that have any type of debris in them. DO NOT PLACE: grass clippings, soil, yard or house plants, stones, bricks, trash, animal feces, or branches in the leaves or along side of them. The leaf collector is designed to pick up leaves only and may become damaged by picking up other items, delaying or canceling leaf collection in the entire township.
We will not pick up any pile of leaves that has a vehicle parked directly in front of or behind it since the road crew and equipment need ample space to clean up the leaves. Do not place leaves around sign posts, mailboxes, basketball poles, road markers or under shrubs or hedges. We will skip these areas until the leaves are moved.
October’s collection dates (weather permitting) will be:
Monday, October 16
Friday, October 20
Monday, October 23
Friday, October 27
Monday, October 30
Weather permitting, the guys will be out collecting leaves everyday in November and December, with the last collection date being Friday, December 8, 2017.
The last day for leaf collection will be Friday, December 8, 2017.
As a reminder, the township will not pick up any tree limbs or debris placed near, in or by any Township street or road. Yard waste and tree branches (tied and bundled) are scheduled for a separate pick up by Waste Management during the Winter Yard Waste pick up on Wednesday, December 6th or can be taken to the organic matter disposal site on Point Road, South Heidelberg Township.
