Leaf Collection Schedule & Rules
SOUTHAMPTON TOWNSHIP RESIDENTS!
The season is upon us when leaves will begin to fall and cleanup is starting. The following options are available for leaf disposal:
1. Backyard composting is highly recommended and the compost generated may be used to enrich your lawn and garden soils. Several homeowner composting bins are available in most lawn and garden supply stores.
2. Southampton Township provides curb-side service for leaf collection beginning November 1, 2013 and ending March 31, 2014. The procedure is as follows: Leaves must be bagged and not weigh more than 50 lbs. Upon collection, if time allows, the collected bags will be opened at your residence and emptied into our leaf truck and the empty bags placed back on your property for disposal or reuse. We will not empty bags containing sticks, bottles, dirt, roots, etc.
Leaf bags must be placed separately from your regular trash, and be at the curb by 7:00 AM for collection (excluding holidays and weather permitting):
The Public Works Department requests your patience and cooperation with our leaf collection program as we have other vital services to provide as well. You may address any comments to the Township Clerk at 609-859-2736.
