Yard waste collection program ends and fall leaf collection program begins in Dallas Borough

First Posted: 10/18/2009

The 2009 Dallas Borough Curbside Yard Waste Collection and Recycling Program will conclude on October 27 and he 2009 Dallas Borough Fall Leaf Collection Program will begin on Monday, Nov. 1.

Collection will continue throughout the entire month of November or until the first significant snow event of the winter season.

The borough asks that residents comply with the following leaf collection guidelines:

Leaves only (no grass clippings or other yard waste) should be raked to the curbside for vacuum collection. The vacuum equipment will not function properly if residents comingle yard waste with the leaves.

Residents are asked to rake all leaves to the curbside in long thin rows approximately three feet wide. Placing the leaves curbside in this manner will facilitate collection. Residents are asked not to place any items on the roadway or within gutters because it creates a hazard for drivers and potentially blocks storm drains.

Residents who prefer to collect leaves and place them in plastic bags may do so by placing the bags curbside for pick-up.

Residents are asked to contact the Dallas Borough administrative office at 675-1389 or the Road Department at 674-5362 with any questions concerning the Dallas Borough 2009 Fall Leaf Collection Program.
