Leaf Collection Information

The Borough leaf collection program has ended for the 2012 fall season. Residents placing leaves in the street after December 14, 2012 may be fined per Borough ordinance and/or required to collect the leaves themselves and transport to the Borough’s Recycling Center. 

If leaves still need to be gathered after this date you may transport them to the Borough recycling center on Saturday,  January 5th and deposit them in the yard waste container provided.  Residents are reminded that any and all yard waste brought to the Center must be in paper bags or, if you wish, you may use cans or plastic bags which may be emptied into the trailer.

Hours for the yard waste drop off on Saturdays are 7:30 am until 3:30 pm.  If you have any questions concerning the Borough’s leaf collection procedure or the yard waste drop off program please contact the Borough at 215-257-5065.  We thank you in advance for your cooperation with this matter as we continue to strive to provide the best service possible to the residents of Perkasie.

This year the department made 4 full trips through the Borough collecting 125 loads totaling over 400 tons of leaves.  With 30 miles of Borough streets to cover this totals over 240 miles traveled for leaf collection.  These collected leaves are transported to local DEP certified composting sites where they are turned into compost and mulch.

If you have any questions concerning the Borough's leaf pick-up program please feel welcome to contact the Public Works Department at 215-257-6860.
