This Week's Leaf Collection Schedule

Leaf collection continues on North and West sides Monday through Wednesday.


Bethlehem’s Department of Public Works continues with leaf collection on the North and West sides of the city Monday through Wednesday. There will be no leaf collection on Thursday and Friday because of the Thanksgiving holiday.

The Streets Bureau asks that city residents adhere to the following guidelines:

Please place loose leaves in the street the day before your scheduled pick up date. Do not place leaves in the street early or after your scheduled pickup date to avoid problems with drainage and/or vehicular access. 

Please do not place leaves in the street after your scheduled pickup date, unless they are in brown earth bags. 

Plastic bags or leaves covered with tarps will not be accepted.  If you choose you can also bag your leaves in brown earth bags (available at the Compost or Recycling Centers; they are sold for two for $1), call (610) 865-7065 to inform us of the number of bags you have, place them curbside, and they will be scheduled to be picked up.

Branches, sticks, grass or other yard waste will not be accepted.  Please do not place leaves under or close to vehicles because we will not be able to pick them up.


  • Remove cars from scheduled streets whenever possible- leaves under vehicles will not be removed.
  • DO NOT mix branches, grass or garbage with the leaves.
  • Branches may be taken to the Compost Center.
  • If it rains, the sections will be done on the next possible day.

The anticipated schedule may vary from time to time depending on weather and workload.  Any questions should be directed to the Public Works Streets Bureau at (610) 865-7065.

Rumor has it that next year, in the spirit of the City of Betlum collecting leaves earlier and earlier in the season, the city is investing in a,"still on the tree leaf vacuumer". If I recall, the product's name is ARBOR SUCK. If you are fortunate enough to have your area scheduled extremely early for leaf pickup this year, when hardly any leaves have fallen from your trees, next year you will have to do no raking as the city will vacuum the not yet fallen leaves directly from your trees! SWEET HUH?
