Leaf collection is scheduled to begin Monday in West Deer, and will run into early December.

Morrow Refuse will pick up leaves one-time, curbside, according to residents’ garbage pickup schedule.

Leaves must be in biodegradable paper leaf composting bags and placed in front of homes by 6 a.m. on the assigned day.

West Deer sells biodegradable leaf bags for $3 for a five-pack, or they can be bought at stores.

Leaves can also be deposited on top of the hill behind the township building, 109 East Union Road. They can be dropped off at any time, but must be in biodegradable leaf bags.

For information, call Morrow Refuse at 724-265-2491 or the township at 724-265-3680.

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.
