Leaf Collection

Leaf Collection Route 2017

Once a street and/or neighborhood is completed it will be highlighted in orange.    

Starting on October 23, the Township will begin its curbside leaf collection program.  The Public Works crew starts at the eastern point of the Township on Beacon Hill and Poplar Avenue and works its’ way west ending in Sheepford Crossing.  This collection route may be repeated several times depending on the fall weather.  Shown below is the collection route.  The daily update of which roads the crew has completed will be on the front page of the website under Township News.  Please remember that leaves may also be bagged and put at curbside as part of your garbage or taken to the Public Works facility.  Collection is weather permitting.   Leaves should be raked to the curb for collection.   The picking machines are equipped with a 5 foot hose that sucks up the leaves into a holding box, which is attached to the truck. Please rake leaf rows to the street side of the curb, or within 5’ of street edge where no curb exist in long rows, and not large piles.  Leaves that are not raked out to 5 feet of the road will not be collected.   The efforts of leaf collection crews are focused on collecting bulk volumes of leaves as efficiently as possible.  It is not practical to spend time vacuuming all the leaf debris only to have more leaves accumulate a few hours later.  At the end of the season, after the last round of leaf collection, the Township street sweeper will clean the streets to remove any remaining debris.  The week of December 11th through the 15th will be the final week of leaf pickup.
