Leaf Removal Service
Residents are reminded that leaves need to be raked out to the Right –of-Way (which is the edge of the road or on the curb). (DO NOT PUT LEAVES IN THE ROADWAY OR ON SIDEWALKS). Leaf piles that contain tree trimmings; sticks or any other type of foreign material other than leaves will NOT be picked up by the Township.
