Fall Leaf Collection ends December 11

LEAF COLLECTION ENDING The last day for residents to put leaves curbside for pick up this fall will be Friday December 11, 2015. Public Works crews may continue  collecting leaves after this date if weather permits, for a final collection.  However, residents should not place leaves out for collection after December 11th as they will cause a problem for snow removal and residents could face possible fines as per ordinance. Residents are also reminded about the yard waste drop off at the Borough Recycle Center at 311 S. 9th st. where leaves can be dropped off after the date of December 6th. The Borough will be scheduling a Spring time leaf collection program.  The date for that collection will be announced in March
