FALL LEAF COLLECTION

waste management

Leaf Collection:  October 28th until December 6th

Waste Management, the Borough's waste hauler, will be providing curbside pick-up of leaf and yard waste materials beginning on Monday, October 28 until Friday, December 6.

This curb side pick-up will be the same day as your trash pick-up, however it will be at a different time that day, since they are picked up by a different truck. Residents must use only Bio-Degradable Leaf and Lawn type bags and place them along the curb a few feet away from your regular garbage receptacle. These bags can be purchased at your local home improvement store. Leaf and yard waste materials will not be picked up if placed out in a plastic bag or other type of container during this program. 

*Grass clippings, dirt, and larger tree limbs are not permitted for this program.


Please do not rake or blow leaves onto the street

Baldwin Borough residents are reminded to refrain from raking or blowing leaf and yard waste out into public streets and roadways. Leaves in the street often end up in and around borough storm drains, blocking and obstructing the catch basin openings, which often times can result into additional downstream water runoff and flooding issues. This can cause complications in the winter as well, particularly if the leaves cluster and then freeze in the drains, again not allowing catch basins to work properly, which can allow for potential ice buildup along that area. Ultimately, this becomes an even a larger maintenance issue for pipe clogging and flooding concerns when the Spring rains arrive. Keeping catch basins clean, open and unobstructed is part of the Borough’s regulatory MS4 requirement and initiative.
