Residents Reminded to Keep Leaves out of Streets, Sewer Systems

Leaves

Please bag leaves and yard waste, and refrain from blowing or dumping leaves into Township roads. Whitpain does not have the proper equipment to pickup large piles of leaves. The heavy, wet piles of leaves get stuck in the street sweeper and cause delays in our street sweeping efforts.


Leaves that are piled in our right of way also create a number of problems and potential hazards, including:

  • Flooding when leaves block storm sewer inlets and drain pipes
  • Delays in street sweeping efforts
  • Children playing in leaf piles can be struck by motorists
  • Freezing of roads in winter months due to blocked inlets and pipes
