Fall Leaf Collection Schedules

2019 Fall Loose Leaf Collection Schedule

Loose Leaf Collection Tips

Additional Loose Leaf Collections Update -- 12/20/2019
Four additional loose leaf collections for routes one, two, three and four were  added to the schedule. Loose leaf collection will start on December 26th, so leaves on routes 1-4 must be curbside by Thursday, December 26th for collection, which will run through the first week of January, but the collection is dependent on weather conditions.

Residents should not put loose leaves out after December 26th, because there will be no more curbside collections after routes one through four are collected. The Township recommends residents bag any remaining leaves, and take any additional bags to the Waverly Road Compost Facility.  In addition the Township will add additional bagged leave 
collections to the  Christmas Tree collections scheduled for January 10, 17, 31, and February 7 in 2020.

2020 Christmas Tree Collection Schedule

      More Information
      Leaves, Garden Debris, Grass & Twigs
      In addition to the fall program, garden debris in biodegradable paper bags will also be collected throughout the spring and summer to assist residents with the lawn and garden work. Leaves, twigs, grass clippings and garden debris may always be included together in biodegradable paper bags during any of the scheduled collections. In fact, state law mandates that these materials must be recycled, so Township crews will not accept them with household waste.

      Drop Off
      Residents may drop off leaves and other garden debris in biodegradable paper bags at the Waverly Road Compost Facility, located between Church Road and Cheltenham Avenue in Laverock, on weekdays from 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Saturdays from 10:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m., unless affected by a holiday.

      Branch Collection
      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.

      For more information, call the Cheltenham Township Public Works Department at 215-635-4600.
