Residents should remember not to rake leaves into the street. They should be placed along the curb so that they do not scatter before they are picked up. Alleys will be picked up with the same street schedule. It is not necessary to bag leaves but cars should be removed that leaves are accessible for the pick up machine.

Anyone with questions should call the Borough office at (610) 826-2505.
