LEAF BAG PICK-UP
Waste Management will only collect leaves in biodegradable paper
bags. Please refrain from putting rocks, sticks, plastic
bottles, etc. in the bags. These items will contaminate
the mulch. Do not close leaf bags with duct tape. Duct
tape is not biodegradable and must not be used. Please leave
enough room at the top of the bag so you can either fold or
roll it closed.
Leaf bags are paper bio-degradable bags and can be purchased
at the municipal building (.40¢ each) or at any store. Bags
should be taken to the curb for pick-up. The leaf mulch will
be available at Blueberry Hill Park in the Spring.

areas of the Borough depending on the amount of brush placed

will get to your area as soon as possible. It is imperative
that residents have your brush at the curb on the first Monday
of the chipping season! Please cut and place your brush
perpendicular to the curb with the butt end out.
This service is provided for brush and tree trimmings only.
Bushes or trees with thorns will not be accepted. If you have
a tree or trees to dispose of, you must contact a private
contractor. Borough crews will not spend more than
15 minutes chipping brush at your home. Please cut and
place your brush accordingly.

THE STORM IS OVER...NOW LET'S WORK
The Franklin Park Borough
Public Works Department has the responsibility of clearing
municipal streets of snow and ice from winter storms. Our aim
is to provide residents with the highest possible level of
service therefore providing a safe environment for vehicular
and emergency traffic. We take this responsibility very
The Borough's snow removal priorities are:
heavy or arterial roadways, followed by school bus routes,
neighborhood roads and finally cul-de-sacs.
During snowfalls the initial pass of the snow
plow is to open the road to traffic flow. Expect to have the
snow pushed back to the curb on a later pass. This is done to
provide more space to push away further snow and to provide
drainage when the snow melts, so that water runs along the
side of the road and not in the cart way where it may refreeze
as temperatures drop. Remember that snow plows cannot pick up
and carry snow, so snow is placed to create the least amount
of problems for motorists.
Ordinance No. 202-13 prohibits parking of
vehicles on Borough roads during periods or snowfall, ice
accumulation and inclement weather. Vehicles will be
ticketed and fined.
Do not shovel or plow snow from your
driveway or walkway into the street. Pile the snow in your
Maintain and repair your mailbox posts.
Mailboxes should not extend past the face of the curb.
Snow must be removed from the sidewalk along
your property within a reasonable time but not later than 12
hours after the cessation of snowfall.
If possible, place snow on the side of
driveway opposite the direction that the plow travels. By
doing so the plow will carry snow away from driveway rather
than into it.
