Additional Branch/Limb Pick Up

Due to the large number of fallen tree branches resulting of the storm on Sunday night, the Lewisburg Borough Public Works crew will undertake a round of branch/limb pick-up from Wednesday, April 17th – Tuesday, April 23rd, 2019.  Fallen branch pick-up will occur on your normal street cleaning day.  Borough residents should place fallen tree limbs along the curb line in front of their house no later than 6:00 am on their designated street cleaning day.  Residents are reminded that we will not take branches larger than 4 inches in diameter and we will not collect tree trunks and tree root balls.  Lewisburg Borough residents are also welcome to haul their branches to the brush pile at Wolfe Field on Wednesdays from 8:00 am – 4:00 pm and on Saturdays from 8:00 am to noon.  Please remember to bring proper identification.

HRO FAQ for Borough 2019

Spring Brush Pick-Up

Borough residents are encouraged to participate in the annual spring (brush, tree trimmings and leaves) pick-up scheduled for the week of April 1st through the 5th.

 

The Borough Public Works Department will be following the daily street maintenance schedule in its efforts to collect brush, tree trimmings and leaves.  These materials will only be collected on the day the street is posted for no parking from 7 AM to Noon, and any subsequent debris left unattended will be considered litter.

 

Tree limbs and tree debris should be no larger than 4” in diameter and cut to manageable lengths.  It should be placed between the curb and the sidewalk where appropriate.  Leaves should be managed in the same manner as fall collection (placed in the gutter along the street) and not co-mingled with limbs and brush.

 

The Borough hopes this annual spring pick-up will help alleviate the hassle of collecting the material individually and having to schedule with the municipal brush pile times of operation.  (Brush pile times of operation: Wednesdays 8 AM to 4 PM and Saturdays 8 AM to Noon.)

 

Additional questions can be directed to the Borough Office at (570) 523-3614 or feel free to stop in at the Borough Office located at 55 South Fifth Street, Lewisburg.
