Palmerton Borough Council has adopted the following leaf disposal plan, effective Oct. 24 through Nov. 23, 2011. 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; south side of 100 and 200 blocks of Harvard Avenue.

Thursdays - North side of Lafayette and Columbia avenues; north side of 100 and 200 blocks of Princeton Avenue; north side of 100 and 200 blocks of Edgemont Avenue; north 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 cars removed so that leaves are accessible for the pick up machine.

Anyone with questions may contact the borough office at (610) 826-2505.
