From Commissioner Moscatelli:
Many residents have contacted the Borough regarding the number of trees which are still dropping leaves, that leaf collection ends next week, and asking if we can extend leaf collection. During leaf collection the Borough has 5 to 6 leaf trucks out collecting 10 hours a day, 6 days a week, utilizing all available DPW personnel as well as 9 temporary workers each day. This is a significant and costly effort for the Borough. However, we do recognize the difficulty the late leaf fall causes for residents.
Therefore, starting December 11, DPW will continue to put 2 or 3 leaf trucks out during normal work hours and continue to collect leaves. We will restart in Monday's trash route as soon as we have completed the 3rd round in Friday's trash route and work our way around town as best we can. We will continue collecting leaves until either we have made a full 4th pass, or until winter weather decides to visit us; we need the leaf collection equipment to plow snow and salt roads, and once we switch over it is impractical to switch back and forth. This is the best compromise we can arrive at without 'busting' the budget.
While we are making this 4th pass, we will maintain a list of street that have been completed on the Borough facebook, updated each weekday, for reference.
Residents are also able to bag any remaining leaves and put them out for vegetative waste collection during the first week of January.
Please be aware, the prohibition on raking piles of leaves in the street still applies, and tickets will be issued to offenders. Leaves should be raked as close to the road as possible, without being in the road or blocking the sidewalk.
If you have questions, please contact DPW at 856-429-0183, or email Public Works Commissioner Moscatelli at firstname.lastname@example.org
