New Schedule Beginning September 2017
Tree Limbs and Branches - From January through October, the chipper truck will run only on the third full trash week of the month, beginning on the third Monday of the month. (This is a change as previously the chipper truck only ran on the first full week of the month.) Branches to be chipped shall be placed on the curb strip, not in the street. The Borough will not pick up entire trees taken down from private property. Limbs can only be a maximum of 6 inches in diameter, however they can be long. No need to cut limbs into 2-foot pieces; the process is faster if the limbs are longer.
During January for Christmas Trees chipping, all decorations including garland, tinsel, lights, and plastic disposal bags must be removed when trees are placed curbside. These materials cannot go through the chipper; trees with any of these items will be left at the curb.
Tree Stumps and Bamboo cannot be chipped and may be placed out for collection by the vegetative waste truck. Stumps must weigh less than 50 pounds and place in a can or brown paper bag for collection. Bamboo must be tied and bundled for pickup by the veg truck.
