Fall Brush and Leaf Collection

Brush and leaf cleanup will be from November 1st to November 5th and November 8th to November 12th. Please refer to the enclosed notices: 

Please note brush pickup is only for small branches and limbs. Branches must be less than 4 inches in diameter. Brush and limbs should be neatly stacked beside a named road for easy access for the Borough employees. If a Borough resident cut down a tree simply to remove the tree, Borough employees will not pick up the branches, limbs, or trunk. 

Collected brush and leaves must be available for pick up on Monday, November 1st and/or Monday, November 8th by 7:00 AM. Throughout the week the Borough’s friendly maintenance team will be making one single pass on each street for brush and again one single pass on each street for leaves. Once the leaves have been picked up on a street or alley the crew will not be back to pick up anymore leaves on the same street or alley that week. Also, once the brush has been picked up on a street or alley the cleanup crew will not be back to pick up anymore brush on the same street or alley that week. Brush and leaves are not picked up simultaneously. Clean up will be held weather permitting.

Attention Residents

A reminder to all the Borough residents, you are responsible for the upkeep of the sidewalk surrounding your property as well as any area between the road and the sidewalk. It has been brought to our attention that numerous houses have not removed the grass and weeds that tend to grow beside the sidewalk and between the cracks and crevices. Please treat the sidewalks as part of your lawn and maintain accordingly.
