Fall Leaf Recycling

Fall Leaf Recycling Information 

Did you know that if you throw your leaf waste in the trash it is a violation of Township Ordinance No. 136? Furthermore, burning is prohibited in our Township and is not a viable option for disposing of leaf and yard waste. The township requires any recyclable material to be recycled, and that includes your yard waste. 

As fall approaches, make a plan for dealing with your leaf and other yard waste. Options include but are not limited to:

  • Hauler Pick Up - Some trash haulers provide customers with specific dates for leaf waste pick up. Call your hauler to find out what these dates are. Do not just put your leaf waste on the curb without first checking with your hauler. 


  • Township Drop Off- Residents can drop their leaves and other yard waste off at the Township's Yard Waste Recycling Facility at 1158 Rapps Dam Rd. Monday-Friday 7am-3pm & Saturdays 8am - Noon (Until October 28)


  • Compost - Consider composting your leaves and other yard waste in your backyard! Visit Penn State Extension website for information on how to start a back yard composting project (www.extension.psu.edu) 



** The Township's Yard Waste Recycling Facility will be closed on Saturdays after October 28th**
