LEAF PICK UP
Borough Leaf Collection Doylestown is one of the few towns that collect resident’s leaves curb-side at no charge. If this public service was “privatized,” it would likely cost each resident hundreds of dollars in leaf-hauling charges every year. So that the Borough can continue to provide this free service in these tough economic times, we ask Borough residents to follow three simple rules when placing your leaves out for pickup.
