Leaf Recycling

posted Nov 8, 2015, 8:22 AM by lsna webmaster
The Leaf Collection and Recycling Program is one of several services provided by the Streets Department to honor the City's on-going commitment to recycling. This recycling program helps to reduce the amount of materials that reach the waste stream and saves landfill space.

The 2015 Leaf Collection and Recycling Program will begin Monday, November 9, and will end Saturday, December 19. The 2015 leaf collection effort will consist of two pick up methods:
  1. Bagged leaf Drop-Off will be offered city-wide, on Saturdays starting November 21, 2015 at 23 designated neighborhood locations from 9 AM to 3 PM (with the exception of the Saturdays following Veteran's Day and Thanksgiving Holidays). For a full location list CLICK HERE.
  2. Mechanical leaf collection will be offered on a designated weekly schedule in areas with a heavy concentration of leaves. To find out if/when your block is scheduled for mechanical collection CLICK HERE.
Please note that leaves set out for collection will be picked up as trash. Residents must drop-off bagged leaves to one of 23 designated neighborhood locations throughout the City.

Thank you for helping us keep Philadelphia clean and green this fall season!
