Leaf/Brush Collection

Leaf Collection
The Highway Department crew collects leaves in all residential subdivisions each Autumn. The collection starts in the middle of October and ends December 15th (may end earlier dependent on snowfall) each year.  Leaves must be raked to the street line and may not include branches or other debris.

Rural routes are completed by request. Residents who reside on a rural road (those not in residential developments or subdivisions) should call the Township Office and let us know that you have leaves at the street line for our pick up. 

Brush Collection

2020 Brush Collection is scheduled for Monday, May 25, 2020 - Friday, May 29, 2020 and
Monday, October 12, 2020 - Friday, October 16, 2020. 

The Highway Department crew collects curbside brush, twice per year over a one-week period.  The collections generally take place in May and September each year. Dates will be announced on this page, as well as on the Township's social media.  Residents can request to have their brush picked up at the curb by calling (610) 779-5660 to make a reservation a week before the pick up is scheduled.

Residents are asked to have their brush at the curb by 7am. Brush must be cut into lengths about 4 feet long, no larger than 4 inches in diameter, and bundled together with twine in sizes that can be picked up by one person and loaded into a pick-up truck.  Please do not put brush into plastic bags or use plastic bag strips to tie bundles.

The brush is taken to the Trout Run Brush Depository to be ground up for mulch that is available free for residents.  The Trout Run Brush Depository is open to residents of Exeter Township and St. Lawrence Borough for an annual $10 fee. Applications for access cards can be obtained at the Township Building, or downloaded here. Applications should be returned to the Township with $10 payment in cash or a check made payable to Exeter Township.
