Leaf Bag Collection
SPRING CURBSIDE LEAF BAG COLLECTION CONTINUES THE
WEEK OF APRIL 12, 2021.
The last week of Spring leaf bag collection begins April 12th. IT IS IMPORTANT THAT RESIDENTS UTILIZE THE CURBSIDE COLLECTION PROCESS. Many residents have been taking leaf bags directly to the Yard Waste Drop Off site. We would ask that you please utilize the curbside pick up over the next week instead.
Residents must place their leaves in brown biodegradable paper bags for collection by our refuse hauler. The refuse hauler will make one pass through the Borough. All bags must be at the curb by 6:00 AM on Monday of each scheduled week (see calendar dates listed).
Depending on the number of bags out it could take a few days for Waste Management to cover the entire Borough. Leaf bag collection does not necessarily coincide with your weekly scheduled trash collection day. DO NOT place leaf bags out the same day as your trash, they must be out by 6:00 am on Monday morning of each collection week.
In accordance with PA DEP regulations, residents are not permitted to place yard waste at curbside for garbage collection. The only exception to this is grass clippings which should be placed in plastics bags and put out with your regular trash.
The Borough offers curbside leaf bag collection service in the Spring and Fall, usually in April and November of each year. Residents must place their leaves in brown biodegradable paper bags for collection by our refuse hauler. The refuse hauler will make one pass through the Borough. All bags must be at the curb by 6:00 AM on Monday of each scheduled week (see calendar dates listed). Biodegradable bags are available at the municipal building at a cost of a $2.00 for a bundle of five (5). Biodegradable bags can also be purchased at any home improvement store. Please do not place grass, sticks, rocks, etc. in the bags and do not close the leaf bags with duct tape. The leaf bags are taken by our refuse hauler to a site for composting. In the Spring, the compost is available for free to Franklin Park residents only and located at the south end of Blaine’s Way in Blueberry Hill Park, near McDevitt Road.
**Dates are tentative based on weather conditions, check the calendar for updated collection information.**
