Fall Leaf Pick Up
At the end of the fall season when the leave come off the trees, the Public Works Department will provide a leaf pick up service for approximately 4 weeks, typically in the month of November. The department asks that you place your bagged leaves in an area of the front of your property not near your garbage to eliminate confusion. The public works team requests you not to make the bags excessively heavy as they have to be loaded into the dump trucks at a much higher height than a standard pick-up truck. We thank you in advance for your understanding. You can call the garage phone and leave a message when you are ready for pick-up if the bags aren’t picked up in a couple days.

Property owners are primarily responsible for the maintenance of sidewalks in front of and alongside their property. Within 24 hours after snow or ice has fallen, Derry Borough requests by Ordinance that owners, occupants, or tenants clear the sidewalks surrounding their property to keep Derry Borough a pedestrian friendly community during all seasons.
