[ARCHIVED] Annual Leaf Collection Begins on Monday, October 28th

Newtown Township's annual leaf collection is about to begin.  Please click HERE to go to the Public Works - Leaf Collection page to see a map, dates and important information to help you prepare your leaves for collection.

New this year - and found at the top of the Leaf Collection page - is a chart which lists all of the streets we collect from, when we will begin collecting from them and will tell you where we have been and when!  The report will be updated each evening to let you know where we collected from that day.  

Remember that while we collect leaves almost every day for 9 weeks, the schedule only works and is only fair to the rest of the community when you do your part and have your leaves ready when we are in your area:

  • First Collection in Zone #1 - all leaves must be out before Monday, October 28, 2019
  • First Collection in Zone #2 - all leaves must be out before Monday, November 11, 2019
  • Second Collection in Zone #1 - all leaves must be out before Monday, December 2, 2019
  • Second Collection in Zone #2 - all leaves must be out before Monday, December 16, 2019

If you do not have your leaves out on-time, we may have gone by already by the time you do get them out.  Once the date above hits we will work hard to clear everything put out within the two-week window before we go to the next area.

Please read the important information found at the link above.  Thank you for your help and your patience as we collect approximately 10,000 yards of leaves each season. That is a lot of material being kept out of the waste stream!
