Lansdowne Environmental E-News – October 19, 2011

Hello Lansdowners,


This Wednesday is Yard Waste Wednesday here in Lansdowne. Get all your bags, cans and bundles out to the curb bright and early. In fact, it’s best if you put it out the night before as the crew gets started really early (I think 7am). This is a real $$ saving borough program, so snip and yank and take advantage of it. There’s only one Yard Waste collection per month in November and December (and then none in January and February), so this one will have to last you until November 16th. Of course, the dates are on the magnet that I hope you have on your refrigerator and can easily reference.


Yup, a true sign of Fall is when the leaf truck starts working its way through the streets of Lansdowne. The borough’s truck sucks up leaves that are raked into the curb area 4 times in October and November. Please use this service for leaves rather than putting them in with the yard waste. And don’t have sticks or rocks mixed in with the leaves as they can damage the machinery. For more information about the schedule, go here:


If you have a neighbor who you think may not know about the borough’s environmental programs such as Yard Waste, Leaf Collection and Recycling, feel free to share the attached piece I put together that has all the information in one place.


I hope you’re enjoying these glorious fall days!


Take care,



Barbara Silzle
