BOROUGH OF HELLERTOWN
YARD WASTE COLLECTION – FALL 2020
The public is advised that the Borough of Hellertown will be making a community-wide, curbside yard waste collection during the week of September 28, 2020. Collections will generally follow the weekly trash collection schedule. Residents having yard waste for collection are advised to place it at their normal collection location the evening before the usual trash pick-up date. All yard waste for collection should be clearly separated from garbage, bundled with string, bagged in biodegradable PAPER bags (no plastic bags will be collected) or contained, and of reasonable weight so that it can safely be lifted by an employee into the collection truck hopper. Only the following material, free of garbage, will be accepted: leaves, small brush (up to 4” in diameter and no longer than 6 feet), hedge trimmings, and garden plant residue. NO GRASS, SOD, OR TREE STUMPS WILL BE ACCEPTED, NOR WILL COMMERCIAL BUSINESS MATERIALS BE ACCEPTED. FOR SAFETY REASONS, YARD WASTE THAT IS NOT BUNDLED, BAGGED IN BIODEGRADABLE PAPER BAGS OR CONTAINED, OR IS TOO HEAVY FOR AN INDIVIDUAL TO LIFT INTO THE TRUCK WILL NOT BE COLLECTED. NO PLASTIC BAGS WILL BE COLLECTED!!
Please be advised that the Yard Waste Compost Center is open to receive yard waste. The Center is open on Fridays and Saturdays, from 9 AM to 1 PM, through November 21, 2020, and is located at 2011 Springtown Hill Road. The Center is a joint project of the Borough and Lower Saucon Township and is available to residents of both communities.
