THE LAST DAY TO PUT LEAVES, ALONG THE CURB, WILL BE SUNDAY, DECEMBER 10, 2017. The Public Works Department will not necessarily follow their regular schedule, that week, but anything that is put out by the 10th will be picked up.
Effective Monday, October 16, 2017 The Borough of Lititz Public Works Department is collecting leaves from along all Borough Streets, weather permitting, utilizing the following schedule PLEASE HAVE CARS PARKED OFF STREET ON YOUR SCHEDULED DAY; RAKE LEAVES INTO WIND ROWS; KEEP LEAVES ABOUT 6" AWAY FROM CURB.
Please see the collection map to find your pick-up day.
Please DO NOT place branches, sticks, twigs, yard clippings, grass or any kind of mulch in the leaf piles (please make sure there are no cement blocks, stone, wood, or any other foreign items inside the leaf piles). DO NOT USE LAWN MOWERS OR MECHANICAL EQUIPMENT SUCH AS VACUUMS, BILLY GOATS, ETC. TO PICK UP LEAVES AND GRASS. IF THESE MACHINES ARE USED TO PICK LEAVES, THE LEAVES MUST BE PUT INTO KRAFT BAGS AND PLACED CURBSIDE FOR TRASH PICK UP. Our equipment is designed to suck leaves into a hose similar to a large vacuum cleaner, and branches, grass and mulch tend to clog the machine.
Leave collection equipment cannot pick up leaves at curbs where trees or parked automobiles interfere. YOUR COOPERATION IS APPRECIATED.
