DALLAS — The 2016 Dallas Borough Fall Leaf Collection Program will begin the week of Nov. 1. Leaf collection will continue throughout the entire month of November or until the first significant snow event of the winter season.

The borough asks that residents comply with the following leaf collection guidelines:

• Leaves only (no grass clippings or other yard waste) should be raked to the curbside for vacuum collection. The vacuum equipment will not function properly if residents commingle yard waste with the leaves.

• Residents are asked to rake all leaves to the curbside in long thin rows approximately three feet wide. Placing the leaves curbside in this manner will facilitate collection. Do not place any items on the roadway or within gutters. This will create a hazard for drivers and potentially block storm drains.

• Residents that prefer to collect leaves and place them in plastic bags may do so by placing the bags curbside for pick-up.

Contact the Dallas Borough administrative office at 570-675-1389 or the road department at 570-674-5362 with any questions.
