Leaf Collection for Residents

All residents and businesses within the Borough of West Chester are required to recycle their leaves. Starting early November through the middle of December, the Public Works Department conducts a six (6) week collection program using leaf vacuum machines and street sweepers. During these six weeks, the areas north of Market Street are collected Mondays and Tuesdays. The areas south of Market Street are collected Wednesdays and Thursdays. Each neighborhood will have three collection weeks, for specific collection dates click here.

The leaf collection crews generally follow the 8 AM – 11 AM sweeper routes on those days as the absence of parked cars lets the collection move along swiftly. After 11 AM the crews then attend to the other streets in the area scheduled for collection that day. Residents are instructed to not pile up leaves for curbside collection until the last week of October; collection does not begin until November. Please be sure to finish placing piles out for collection by the Sunday before the final collection week. The Borough will not collect leaves after the final scheduled collection week in middle December.

To dispose of leaves any time other than the scheduled collection season, bring your bagged leaves to the drop-off area at the Public Works Department at 205 Lacey Street. Please open the bags and dump the leaves into the pile and take all plastic bags home with you. This drop off is open to Borough of West Chester residents ONLY.
