Township Rules Regarding Leaves

Please do not pile leaves in streets or gutters. Ross Township requires residents to collect their leaves for recycling and place then in paper recycling bags.

Dates for Pickup

The Township will pick up leaf bags beginning October 15th through November 30th each fall. In the spring, bags will be picked up from April 1st through April 15th. Bags will be picked up only at the curbside on your regular garbage day.

What to Put in Leaf Bags

Dry leaves, small twigs, or dead plants are acceptable for recycling. Wet leaves, grass, rocks, or tree branches are not acceptable.

Where Can I Get Leaf Bags?

Leaf bags can be purchased at the Ross Township Municipal Building, certain township Fire Departments, or at your local hardware store. Do not use plastic bags since they are not biodegradable. Use only the paper recycling bags.
