Leaf Collection, Derry Township

The Department collects leaves beginning mid-October of each year. The collection schedule is published in the Fall Township Newsletter and in the local newspapers early in October. Residents interested in having their leaves picked up are asked to place only leaves at the curbside for pick-up. Please review the following guidelines for placing leaves at the curb:

  • Collection will only be made on streets, not alleys.
  • Foreign material in leaf piles can cause injury to the workers and mechanical breakdown of equipment. Please remove materials such as rocks, toys, boards, tree trimmings, etc.
  • Please trim street trees to a height of 9′ above the cartway to allow leaf trucks, school buses, snowplows, and emergency vehicles to pass with ease.
  • Please place basketball nets behind the curb to avoid contact with the leaf picking equipment and snowplows.
