Spring Curbside Yard Waste Collection

Week of April 21, 2014
The Highway Department will remove your brush and yard waste two times per year during it’s scheduled Spring and Fall Yard Waste Collection Days.
 
The Highway Department will pick up yard debris placed curbside utilizing the same schedule as leaf collection, street sweeping, roadside mowing, etc.:
 
Monday: Chambers Hill
Tuesday: Rutherford
Wednesday: Lawnton and Lenker Manor
Thursday: Oberlin Gardens and 29th Street Area
Friday: Enhaut, Oberlin and Bressler
 
If the entire route is not completed each day, Township Crews will start the next available day exactly where they left off and continue until a complete round of the Township has been made.   
 
Items that WILL be picked up include: leaves, sticks, hedge clippings, garden debris, tree branches (less than 8” in diameter, cut less than 6’ long).  Leaves and other small materials must be bagged, preferably with brown paper yard waste bags (available at home and garden centers). 
 
Items that WILL NOT be picked up include: grass clippings, logs, tree trunks, stumps, lumber, garbage of any kind.
 
The Township schedules curbside yard waste collection twice per year - once in the Spring and again in late Summer. Please do not call for individual yard waste pick-ups before or after the scheduled collection dates, as the Highway Department needs to concentrate on performing road maintenance tasks. Please remember that the yard waste composting facility at 780 Kelker Street is open April through October M-F 8:00AM – 3:00 PM and Saturday's 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. for Swatara Township residents who wish to drop off their yard waste.  Permits must be obtained from the Municipal Building prior to drop off at the facility.
