Raking them in.

Rake 'em in and recycle.

LIMERICK PA – Local residents should have already heard from Limerick (PA) Township trash haulers about a scheduled date later this month (November 2009) for leaf and yard waste pick-ups. If not, the township website advises, give your hauler a call. But if the hauler’s plan isn’t convenient, your next best option to get rid of yard waste arrives in a little less than two weeks.

A yard waste drop-off is planned for Nov. 14 (2009; Saturday) from 8 a.m. to Noon at the township public works facility, behind the municipal building at 646 W. Ridge Pike, Limerick PA.

All yard and leaf waste, whether curbside pick-up or brought to the collection site, must be placed in biodegradable bags. They are available for purchase at local home goods retail stores, or at the municipal building. No waste will be accepted that is not appropriately bagged.

Township yard waste regulations, adopted in October 2008, comply with state Department of Environmental Protection requirements on yard and leaf waste disposal. The program intends to reduce disposal and encourage recycling of yard and leaf waste.

Although no yard waste drop-off is scheduled for December (2009), trash haulers by law must conducted a pick-up sometime next month too. Call your hauler for specifics.
