Perkasie Borough will begin curbside spring leaf collection starting on Monday April 17, 2017.  Borough crews will make one pass through the Borough following the established routes.  There will be no call backs for leaves placed out after April 17.

Residents are reminded that they must have their leaves curbside by 7:00 AM on Monday April 17.  Do not block storm drains with leaf piles. Please ensure that the leaf piles are free of any stones or other debris that may cause injury to employees or damage to the machinery. Grass clippings and sticks will not be picked up by Borough crews and will be left curbside for residents to dispose of correctly. 

Residents are also reminded that they may drop off yard waste on the first Saturday of every month at the Borough Recycling Center located at 311 S. 9th St.  Drop off begins at 7:30 AM and ends promptly at 3:30 PM.  No late arrivals please. Leaves and other yard waste being brought in must either be in cans or paper bags.  No material will be accepted in plastic bags.  This is a free service provided by the Borough for Borough residents only, no contractors are allowed.  Proof of Borough residency may be required and must be presented if asked for by the attendant.  Please follow the signs and the attendants’ directions at the recycling center for proper disposal site information.

Please feel welcome to contact the Borough with any questions concerning this leaf collection program at 215-257-5065.
