2021 BRUSH AND LEAF PICK-UP SCHEDULE
Why the need….
· The Borough’s Brush and Leaf Collection process is designed to reduce the amount of debris that ends up in our storm water system (Storm drains, and ultimately the river), and it optimizes the use of our limited DPW resources.
· Brush (tree limbs, less than 3 inches in diameter, no longer than 4 feet in length) and Leaves (free of debris and large branches) are all handled very differently and in the most cost effective manner. Please place brush and leaves in SEPARATE PILES at least 10’ from storm drains. If piles are not separated properly, they WILL NOT be picked up.
· Grass clippings are to remain on the grass and NEVER placed in the street.
· Based on a recent survey of residents conducted by the Brush Committee, it was determined that residents want the Borough to more rigorously enforce these policies. Please help us by following the posted Brush and Leaf schedule and be advised that the Borough Code Enforcement office will be checking for compliance.
· Residents are asked to inform your landscapers of the Borough’s Leaf and Brush Collection schedule which is clearly laid out in the Borough Calendar and on our website.
Please help keep our waterways clean and our Borough looking its BEST!
Should you have any questions, do not hesitate to contact the Borough offices.
Thank you in advance for your support and for your anticipated cooperation.
IN ADDITION, PLEASE REFRAIN FROM PARKING VEHICLES ON FH STREETS, NEAR BRUSH PILES, IN ORDER FOR DPW CREWS ACCESS TO THE PILES.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
