Leaf Season Reminders

A few things to remember when putting leaves out for pickup are as follows:

  • Leaf Removal Districts
  • Make sure there are no branches, rocks, or debris in the piles. If we see this type of foreign material in the pile, we will not pick it up. These types of materials will damage the equipment, in turn will delay our process of leaf collection.
  • When placing your leaves in street, try to keep the piles about a foot away from the curb.
  • If there is an inlet/catch basin in front of your house please try to keep the top of the grate free of debris.

Information for the 2023 Leaf Pick-Up Program:

  • During leaf season, we go through each District TWICE with our front-end loaders, sweepers and leaf suckers. 
  • Leaves raked out AFTER crews have gone by WILL NOT be picked up until the next time crews are scheduled in that District.
  • After each District is gone through twice for leaf pickup, we will go through again with the sweepers for our final sweep. After the final sweep is accomplished in your district, no leaves are to be put into the street.
  • After the final sweep has been completed, all residents are urged to bag their leaves in plastic bags for pick-up by the Streets Department. Residents must put their bags at the curb and call the Bureau of Streets at 610-437-7638 to schedule a pick up; Please allow a few days for the pick-up of the bagged leaves. Bags that have a mixture of leaves and garbage WILL NOT be picked up.
  • Please visit Recycling and Solid Waste for more information regarding collection on your recycling nights.
