Leaf Collection and Mulch
General Information about Leaf Collection
The Borough is divided into eight collection zones. Zones by street name can be found here. Leaf collection for 2021 has been completed.
Should the collection crew fall significantly behind schedule for any reason (weather, equipment problems, etc.) a revised schedule will be posted on the website with the revision date clearly indicated.
* Have leaves raked to the curb by 7 a.m. on your scheduled collection day.
Borough Mulch does a Garden Good!
Water less, control weeds and support the local leaf recycling by using Borough mulch, made from leaves collected curbside in the fall. Borough mulch makes a perfect ground covering, retains moisture in your soil, looks great around trees, in your garden beds and pathways, and can stop erosion on slopes too.
The Borough sells mulch from the middle of March until June (or whenever the mulch runs out). Contact Borough Hall by emailing Elise@swarthmorepa.org, calling (610) 543-4599, placing an order through our website (click on online bill pay) or stopping by the office.
