Leaf Pick-up is underway in Lower Paxton Township.
Leaf Pick-up will continue for a few more weeks. Please place leaves at the curb line, not in the street.  The Township will make rounds to pick them up.
Leaves placed in the street will cause drainage backups, so please help us keep the drains clean and please refrain from placing leaves in the street. Thank You!
