Leaf/Grass/Garden Debris Dropoff

Residents may also drop off biodegradable paper bags containing, leaves, grass and garden debris at the Waverly Road Compost Facility on weekdays from 7:30AMto 3PM and Saturdays from 10AM to 2PM, unless affected by a holiday. The compost facility is located on Waverly Road between Church Road and Cheltenham Avenue in Laverock. Dumping material when the facility is closed is prohibited. Violators are subject to fines.

Disposing of large branches requires an appointment for a special collection, which entails a fee.  However, no branch collections will be scheduled during the fall leaf collection program. 


Landscapers must obtain a Township permit annually to dump garden debris at the Waverly Road Compost Facility: $50 for landscapers that pay the Township business privilege tax and $100 for others. Additional charges apply per cubic yard of debris.

Important Fall Collection Reminders
  • Leaves should be placed at the curb by 7AM on the first day noted in the schedule.
  • Residents should never pile leaves over storm drain grates or inlets. In fact, property owners adjacent to storm drain inlets are encouraged to keep the drains clear.
  •  When forecasts predict heavy storm events, Public Works crews often perform unscheduled, unpublicized loose-leaf collections in low-lying areas to prevent flooding.
  • Residents should park in their driveway on their collection days so crews can clear leaves from roadways curb to curb.
  • Avoid parking over leaves because heat from a vehicle could ignite a fire.
