Yard waste is collected the first and third Tuesday of every month. Yard waste must be placed curbside by 7 a.m. in either a trash can, recyclable brown bag, or tied into bundles. Just a reminder that sticks and branches may not exceed 4 feet in length or 4 inches in diameter, and no container to exceed 40 pounds. Grass clippings are not accepted in yard waste or regular trash. Please recycle throughout your lawn.
The Borough's regular collection of yard debris will continue at the same time as loose leaf collection. Those collection days are the first and third Tuesdays of the month. Leaves remaining after collection of loose leaves has ended may be included in the yard waste collection. Leaves must be placed in cans or brown paper bags - no plastic bags allowed.
Christmas trees will be collected curbside by the Public Works Department in January. Dates are posted on the front page of the website . If you dispose of your tree after January, please include it with regular yard waste collection.
