Please make sure any branches are cut up into 3ft pieces and bundles are less than 50lbs. 

Curbside collection of yard waste will be on Wednesday, July 1st beginning at 7:00 AM.  For resident affected by the storm damage, PECO crews will trim branches away from the electrical lines, but it is the homeowner’s responsibility for debris cleanup.  Due to last week’s storm event, our vendor is anticipating a significant volume of waste material and has added labor and vehicle resources accordingly. The disposal facility has the following requirements that must be adhered to:

  • All branches must be cut to lengths of approximately 3’
  • Smaller branches can be bundled with twine
  • No materials weighing greater that 50-pounds will be removed
  • No stumps can be collected

In addition to the curbside collection on Wednesday, July 1st, the Borough has made arrangements for yard waste containers to be placed at the following locations:
Ward #1 – 105 East Ward Street (Borough Hall Rear Parking Lot)
Ward #2 – 230 West Chester Pike (Police Station)
Ward #3 - E. Hinckley Ave. @ Burke Ave (Bonnes Park)
Ward #4 – 200 West Ridley Ave (Highway Yard)
Residents are welcomed to dispose of yard waste at the location most convenient to their property.  These containers are for yard waste only. Containers will be in place until Monday, July 6th
Please contact Borough Hall at 610-532-2100 with any questions.
