LEAF WASTE COLLECTION - RULES AND INFORMATION

Waste Management as part of the standard service collects unlimited curbside collection of leaf waste. There is no extra fee or tag needed.

  • Leaf waste is collected April through December.
  • Christmas trees are only collected in January. Trees must be free of all decorations and plastic "tree bags" cannot be used. NO LEAF WASTE WILL BE COLLECTED.
  • Your leaf waste collection day is the day following your standard trash/recycle collection day on the shaded weeks.
  • All leaf waste must be placed at the curb before 5 am on your collection day.
  • Plastic bags may not be used. "Kraft" bags or 10-36 gallon trashcans can be used for leaf waste. Containers cannot weigh more than 50 pounds when full.
  • Brush and branches must be tied in bundles 6 feet or less in length. Tree branches can be no greater than 2 inches in diameter. Bundles cannot weigh more than 50 lbs.
  • Brush greater than 2 inches (2-12 inches) in diameter must be taken directly to the compost facility by residents.
  • Containers that also contain solid waste or grass clippings will not be collected.
  • All leaf waste collected by Waste Management will be taken directly to the Lower Paxton Township compost facility on Conway Road.
  • For additional information, call Waste Management at 717-232-0878.
