Leaf Collection Update, 12/13/2016

Crews are working on the second and final round of Leaf Collection according to the schedule below:

Zone 1:  Week of 11/28/2016  (COMPLETE)

Zone 2:  Week of 12/5/2016  (COMPLETE)

Zone 4:  Week of 12/19/2016 – PENDING

Zone 5:  Week of 12/26/2016 – PENDING

 

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.

 

In an effort to stay on schedule, crews may move forward into the next Zone early.  However, crews will return to the scheduled Zone during the scheduled week. 

 

Those residents that have leaves to dispose of after their Zone has been completed may bring their leaves to the DPW yard any Monday through Friday, from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and every third Saturday, from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm; excluding holidays.

 

ZONE 1 Residents:  One additional sweep of Zone 1 will be completed the week of January 2nd, 2017; weather permitting.  Residents in Zone 1 should place their remaining leaves at the curb no earlier than the week of December 26th.

 

BRUSH COLLECTION REMINDER:  Do not place brush at the street for collection.  Brush Collection for 2016 has been completed and no additional collections are scheduled until the Spring of 2017.  Residents who place material at the street will be cited for violation of Township Code.

 

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.
