Leaf Collection Update, 11/23/2016
The first round of Leaf Collection has been completed in all Zones. Crews will start the second and final round of Leaf Collection according to the schedule below:
Zone 1: Week of 11/28/2016

Residents are encouraged to rake their leaves to the street before the Monday of the scheduled collection. Each street is collected once. Leaves placed curbside after our crews have collected the street will be the responsibility of the homeowner to remove. Please make sure your leaves do not contain sticks, branches, tree limbs, or other debris. All piles should be no more than 10-12 feet from the edge of the roadway. Our crews will not drive onto private property or drive off the road to collect leaves.

Brush Collection:

The Dept. of Neighborhood Services has received numerous calls about the collection of brush. Many calls were received because the homeowner thought Brush Collection and Leaf Collection were the same program. Brush collection is the collection of tree branches and limbs less than six (6) inches in diameter. Brush collection was completed in October but will resume in the Spring of 2017.

As listed above, Leaf Collection will continue according to the published schedule and will be completed the last week of December, 2016.

The Township will enforce Township Codes that prohibit the placement of leaves or brush at the street outside of scheduled collection times. Residents who place material at the street outside of our collection schedule will be cited accordingly.

Program updates will be distributed as needed through our website, Facebook page, and Nixle. Please contact the Department of Neighborhood Services with any questions you may have at 609-654-6791 or via email to Richard Parks, Director of Neighborhood Services at rparks@medfordtownship.com.
