Fall 2020 Township Leaf Collection Begins

FALL LEAF COLLECTION - 2020

The South Heidelberg Township Public Works Department will begin fall leaf collection on Wednesday October 28th 2020 and continue to collect leaves through Friday December 4th, 2020. 

 Leaf Collection will begin in Zone 1, shown on the below map, with crews moving through each zone in sequence. Any changes to the leaf collection schedule will be announced and residents may call the Township at 610.678.9652 with any questions regarding leaf collection.

Fall Leaf Collection Tips

  • To help maximize efficiencies in the collection program:
  •  Leaves should be raked to within a few feet of the curb and should be ready for collection by 7 a.m. each Monday.
  • Place leaves in uniform sized rows as opposed to placing leaves in big piles
  • Keep leave rows at least 10 feet away from any poles, trees or signs
  • Please refrain from blowing or raking leaves into the street as they can clog storm drains and lead to flooding.
  • Do not place leaves in bags for this seasonal collection.
  • Please make sure that leaves are free of brush, glass, cans, rocks or other debris, as these items may cause injury to workers and damage to the collection equipment
