Welcome to Kingston Township
SPRING YARD WASTE/BAGGED LEAF PICK-UP
The Kingston Township Board of Supervisors has announced the Spring Yard Waste/Bagged Leaf Pick-up has been scheduled for Monday, April 24, 2023 to Friday, April 27, 2023 weather permitting. Residents are advised to have yard waste and bagged leaves placed at the curbside for pick-up. Yard waste consists of sticks and twigs bundled three (3) feet in length and one (1) foot in height and one (1) foot wide. Limit two (2) bundles. Large limbs will not be accepted. Township crews will be conducting the pick-up between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Township asks the cooperation of residents in refraining from sweeping leaves into gutters and roadways. The leaves block storm drains and pose a serious maintenance problem for the Public Works Department. A Township Ordinance also prohibits this practice. Residents are reminded that bags must contain only leaves. NO GRASS CLIPPINGS. Residents are also reminded that Ordinance 2004-4 prohibits the burning of leaves.
