February 2021

LEAF COLLECTION PINE GROVE BOROUGH.  Bagged leaves will be picked up on Thursdays starting Thursday, November 4, 2021 thru Wednesday, November 24, 2021.  Bagged leaves will be picked up on Wednesday, November 24, 2021 instead of Thursday due to the Thanksgiving Holiday.  Leaves must be bagged and tied. Please place tied bags along the curbs so the borough crew can safely pick them up.

Also, just a friendly reminder when cleaning up yards and sidewalks, please don’t sweep debris into the roads.  Debris will go into the storm drains causing blockages which cause water to back-up and flood surrounding areas. 

Pine Grove Borough Office does sell compost permits for $20.00.  You can stop in Monday-Friday from 8:00am to 4:00pm to purchase your compost permit. 




Ashes will be picked up on Tuesdays and Fridays beginning Tuesday, November 16, 2021.

Tubs must have handles and be free of sharp edges.

Thank you.
