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.
