 Lower Gwynedd-Ambler-Whitpain  See map

Whitpain Township will offer leaf collection throughout the township, on the fourth Wednesday of each month. All leaf waste should be at the curb the night before collection.

Leaf waste includes leaves, shrubbery and minor tree trimmings, in biodegradable paper bags, or containers along with bundled shrubs or plants, excluding dirt. Shrubs or plants must be under four feet in length and bundled. Tree branches must be tied and under three inches in diameter, and under four feet in length. Grass clippings are excluded.

Why is it necessary to drive a truck and pay the wages of individuals 12 times annually, as well as causing an inconvenience to homeowners by making older citizens either stuff them in bags or be forced to hire an outside company? What about all the times taxpayers do not put out anything in front of their homes? The logical way to do it is similar to that of Plymouth, Whitemarsh, Upper Dublin, East Norriton, and other nearby townships. Allow the taxpayers to take the leaves to the streets 3 times annually on a specific day(s) of the week and collect them. The leaf mulch could be offered to the taxpayers, as well as spread on the athletic fields (even the new ones on the Cook Tract). As a multiple year "Arbor Day Participant", Whitpain township should be ashamed of what they are wasting in labor, as well as fuel and materials. The real shame is they are not taking advantage of the finished composted product.
