Leaf, Debris Collection Schedule in Marple Newtown

Both Marple and Newtown townships will resume back to the normal leaf collection schedule starting Monday.

As residents across the Delaware Valley resume their daily lives and pick up the pieces post Hurricane Sandy, Marple and Newtown townships will also resume their normal leaf collection schedules on Monday.

Though Marple township did send out limited trash collection crews last Monday and Tuesday during the storm in order to prevent potential storm sewer blockages, the normal leaf collection schedule will resume on Monday.  

Leaf collection will be picked up this week for residents living in wards 5, 6, and 7 in Marple Township. 

In addition, Marple Township will be collecting debris–post Sandy–on Tuesday, Nov. 6. Residents must prepare the materials correctly: branches have to bundled together no more than 3 feet in length and no more than 60 pounds.  Materials can also be placed in trash containers and bio-degradable yard waste bags.   

In Newtown township, some variation of leaf collection occurred after the storm this past week but normal leaf collection will resume Monday. Residents are told to follow the precinct leaf collection mapping schedule.

Starting this week through Nov. 16, leaf collection will be picked up for Newtown residents living in the third and sixth precincts. Call your local private trash collector for debris collection.

Can the township please enforce the "No Leaves In the Street" rule? There is no parking and then these neighbors fill the street with leaves 4 feet high. All so they won't kill their precious grass. Keep your leaves on the lawn. Also, if your neighbor has no trees and your trees load up his/her yard, feel free to rake YOUR leaves up,

Why haven't the leaves on Fawn Hill Road been picked up?? Two scheduled weeks have come and gone and no pick up!!!!!! Our street is a mess and it's becoming a hazard. What is the township waiting for??? The weather was perfect last week, so they can't use bad weather as an excuse, I would have held off blowing my leaves to the curb had I known they were going to sit there for a month!! UUGGHH! With Thanksgiving this week, where in the world are guests supposed to PARK?? HELP! Sharon =t-
