“LEAF” pickup for Wednesday, November 25, 2015

Wednesday, November 25  –  PLANNED leaf pickup:  WEATHER PERMITTING

  • Continuing with Route 1
  • Finishing Wheatland and moving down toward Columbia Ave. (Hillside, Oak, Gordon, Wilson Ave.)
  • Downtown Bausman area

 Route Map

For signed streets:  If you reside on a street with “signed parking restrictions,” please abide by the schedule as it appears on that sign. The police will enforce street signs that prohibit parking on certain days.

Every effort will be made to collect leaves on streets with “signed parking restrictions” on the days/times listed on the street signs.  Access the full schedule for Signed Streets by clicking here

Leaf Pickup areas are always planned and dependent upon volume, weather and traffic. We may not get to all planned areas on the day indicated. Leaves may be raked to the curb at any time. Place leaves close to the curb or at the edge of the yard in non-curbed areas. 


Grass clippings, tree branches, or yard waste are not to be placed on the street for pick up. Grass clogs the machine, and tree branches or yard waste will break it–this will lead to delays in the leaf pickup process. Tree branches or yard waste found mixed in with the leaves will be placed in your yard. 

The township will continue to pick up bagged leaves on some of the high-traffic main roads where leaf pickup is too dangerous. Plastic yard clean-up bags are to be used and bags must be placed at curbside. Please call 293-1733 when bags are ready for pick up.  These streets are:

  • Columbia Avenue
  • East King Street
  • Millersville Pike
  • Millersville Road
  • New Danville Pike
  • Wabank Road

Leaf pickup ends Friday, December 18, 2015 (Wednesday, December 16 for signed streets). The leaf pickup schedule may need to be altered at any time due to weather.
