Loose Leaf Collection Tips

The first round of leaf collections is a one-day collection. Round two is a two-day collection, but all leaves MUST be placed out by day 1 of the collection.  If your leaves were not collection on day 1, the remainder will be collected on the orange dates below. Please do NOT place additional leaves out after crews have passed on day 1 of the collection.

      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.
