Residents are reminded that Borough crews will try to follow the weekly street-cleaning schedule for leaf pickup. As the volume of downed leaves increases, so will the collection schedule. Please pile your leaves to the curbside but do not attempt to dispose of garden waste, yard waste or tree trimmings with the leaves. The leaf vacuums are not designed or constructed to vacuum these items, which may lead to equipment breakdowns.
Also remember that the vacuum has to be able to reach the leaves in order to pick them up, so please do not park on or near piles of leaves. Thank you for your cooperation as we all try to keep our attitudes aloft as the leaves fall.
The Borough will stop leaf collection on Wednesday, November 27, in order to transition equipment for snow removal. Please have all your leaves gathered and placed by the curb prior to that date.
