Leaf collection will start on Monday, October 17. Please DO NOT place leaves in the street.
Placing leaves in the street before leaf collection as started is a violation of the Stormwater Ordinance and will be treated as such with a Notice of Violation. Please bag leaves and place them out with your trash. Thank you for your cooperation.
The annual leaf collection for Lower Allen will start on Monday October 17th and continue through December 12th. (With the exception of the Thanksgiving Holiday, November 24 – November 28th) Crews will collect leaves weekly through each neighborhood. If you miss the collection for the week, you will have to wait until the next round to have your leaves removed. 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 exists, in long rows, not large piles. Leaves that are not raked within 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.
Collection from East to West – Weekly leaf collection will begin in the eastern section of the Township (Allendale) and proceed towards the southern and western sections (Lisburn /Windsor Park areas). Updates regarding leaf collection will be posted on the website at www.latwp.org or information can be obtained by calling Public Works at 717-975-7575 Ext. 2104, during regular business hours.
Just Leaves – Only Leaves may be raked or placed roadside. Do not place sticks, boards, bricks, rocks or other items in the leaf piles.
Clear the way – Roadside trees should be trimmed to the legal height of 14 feet and roadside basketball nets need to be set behind the curb line.
Delays – Heavy accumulations of leaves, inclement weather and machine breakdowns may delay the collection of your leaves. Please be patient as crews do their best to service your area.
Below is an interactive leaf collection map of the Township and the roads that get leaf collection.
Once a street and/or neighborhood is completed it will be highlighted in orange.
The Township has began 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.
