 Leaf Collection
** Leaves will be collected beginning in late November through December
** Leaf vacuuming will resume for one pass in late April, depending on the weather. We will make every attempt to have the leaves removed by this time, however depending on many factors leaf collection may continue into early May. Please note leaves put out in May are not guaranteed to be picked up.
** Public Works does not pick up grass clippings, foliage, straws or grasses, sticks, branches or vines, sticky balls or pine needles. The pile should be only leaves. Piles containing anything other than leaves will be left and will be the responsibility of the homeowner to remove.  

Snow Removal Reminder
With winter comes the possibility of icy and/or snow-covered roads. The DPW works hard to get things back to normal after a snowfall, but we need your help. Residents are asked to follow the Borough Code and  make every effort to remove all vehicles from the streets and roadways when inclement weather is expected. This allows the DPW crews to clear the roadways more efficiently and safely. Also please remember, per Borough Code all sidewalks are to be cleared within 24 hours of the last snow falling. Do not shovel snow from your property onto the plowed sidewalks and roadways.
