Palmerton Borough has released its leaf pickup and collection schedule for 2013.
Effective Oct. 14 through Nov. 27, borough council has adopted the following leaf disposal plan, and leaf pickup will be as follows:
Mondays: Residence Park and areas north of Columbia Avenue, and east of Third Street.
Tuesdays: North side of Lehigh Avenue, and north side of Franklin Avenue.
Wednesdays: South side of Lafayette and Columbia avenues, south side of 100 and 200 blocks of Princeton Avenue, south side of 100 and 200 blocks of Edgemont Avenue, and south side of 100 and 200 blocks of Harvard Avenue.

Fridays: Avenue A, Avenue B, Delaware Avenue, south side of Lehigh and Franklin avenues.
Residents should remember not to rake the 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 please have your car removed so that leaves are accessible for the pick up machine.
Anyone with questions may call the borough office at 610-826-2505.
