LEAF COLLECTION - Leaf collection in the Borough has begun and will continue through December 9. Loose leaves should be placed at the curb for collection. Grass clippings, sticks and other yard debris may not be mixed with the leaves, as the Borough's leaf collection equipment is not capable of picking up such items. Leaf collection crews will cover the Borough on a continuing basis without an established schedule. As an alternative to waiting for your leaves to be collected, residents may take their leaves to the yard waste recycling site located in the Shillington Memorial Park.
