Yard Waste


Grass clippings, leaves, and twigs must be placed in brown yard waste paper bags and set at curbside for collection by the Borough. Separate the grass clippings from the regular trash. Do not mix refuse with the yard waste.

Note: All grass clippings must be bagged. Bags should not weigh more than 30 lbs, or will be left at the curb. The Borough will not collect loose grass clippings placed in containers.  

All shrubbery and tree trimmings need to be bundled, tied together, should not exceed a length of four (4) feet and be easy for one person to pick up. Place at curbside for collection. Please be sure to keep separate from the regular trash.

The yard waste material is not collected with the trash or recycling; it is a separate pickup and disposed of at our compost facility.

The Borough does provide a fall leaf vacuum collection program which occurs from the first week in October through the first week in December.
