Barring complications with weather, equipment or emergencies, the Borough of Emmaus will begin its 2017 Curbside Leaf Collection Program on Monday, October 23, 2017, continuing through Friday, December 1, 2017. The Borough is unable to set specific pick-up dates for leaf pick-up for individual streets. We recommend that you have them raked out at the beginning of each week. Once the Public Works Department has made a pass through your street, they will not return until the following week. The Public Works Department will collect 2x a week for 7 weeks during the fall season. Please be advised that if the Borough encounters winter weather and must plow, any leaves in the road will be plowed. Every attempt will be made to clean the roads prior to winter. For FINAL COLLECTION, you are advised to have your leaves out on Monday morning (November 27) of the final week. Once we have made our final pass on your street, we will not return.
