O’Hara residents can schedule fall brush collection

O’Hara residents have until Oct. 5 to schedule fall brush collection.

Oct. 5 is the last day to request special fall brush collection in O’Hara.

The township offers the pick-up several times a year but residents have to schedule it. Requests will be accepted until 4:30 p.m.

Guidelines are as follows:

• Limbs and brush must be placed along the curb but not in the street.

• Limbs 4 inches wide or less can not be longer than 8 feet. Limbs 4 to 6 inches wide can not be longer than 4 feet.

• Hedges, vines, shrubs and other brush must be separated from tree limbs and tied in bundles less than 16 inches wide.

• Root balls or dirt must removed.

• Each property is limited to one truckload of brush.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
