Leaf & Yard Waste Disposal

We are about to enter the season when we start to realize we have an ever increasing mountain of leaves and yard waste to deal with. There are several ways you can dispose of leaf and yard waste in the Township.

The best for a wooded or natural area of your garden is to let the leaves lay and naturally decompose to enrich the soil and feed the trees and shrubs. Next best is to collect the leaves and, after shredding if possible, compost the leaves which will provide a rich organic mulch for your garden.

If you wish the leaves to be removed from your property you have several options:

  1. The Twp. Licensed Trash Hauler that you contract with for the collection of your recyclables is required to provide a Spring and Fall leaf collection. If you are uncertain of those collection dates contact your Trash Hauler directly for the dates and any requirements they may have for the collection.
  2. You can contract with a landscaper who can dispose of your leaves and yard waste at a commercial recycling center.
  3. Residents may use their own vehicles (no landscape or commercial vehicles accepted) to bring leaves and yard waste to the New Britain Road entrance to Central Park. This Drop of Site is open every third Saturday of the month, March to December from 9am to 11am. All yard waste is to be removed from containers when dropped off; no leaf bags, boxes or plastic bags can be accepted. Please do not dump yard waste at the site on any other days when the drop off area is not manned.

When collecting leaves, please remember to contain them on your own property and not to pile them into the street or drainage swales where they would impede the free flow of Stormwater and lead to localized flooding.

For more information, including the list of licensed trash haulers and their contact information please look at the Trash and Recycling page on the Township website.

Invasive Plant ID & Removal Workshop

Saturday, October 19, 2019 @ 9am-11am

2-hour workshop focusing on the identification and removal of Burning Bush, also known as “Winged Euonymus.” A commonly-used non-native landscape plant, Burning Bush has escaped into our woodlands and is choking out valuable native shrubs and wildflowers. It’s easiest to see in autumn when its rosy-red leaves are most obvious.

Wear sturdy shoes, bring work gloves and pruners (if you have them). Please be prepared to be a Park Partner as Doylestown Township continues its long-standing responsible environmental stewardship.

School Bus Safety

With the new school year fast approaching bus safety is a priority! Students, parents, teachers administrators and the motoring public all play important roles in keeping our children safe while in or around the scbool bus.

Pennsylvanian’s School Bus Stopping Law

  • Motorists must stop at least 10 feet away from school buses that have their red lights flashing and stop arm extended.
  • Motorists must stop when they are behind a bus, meeting the bus or approaching an intersection where a bus is stopped.
  • Motorists following or traveling alongside a school bus must also stop until the red lights have stopped flashing, the stop arm is withdrawn, and all children have reached safety.
  • If physical barriers such as grassy medians, guide rails or concrete median barriers separate oncoming traffic from the bus, motorists in the opposing lanes may proceed without stopping.
  • Do not proceed until all the children have reached a place of safety.

Penalties of violating Pennsylvania’s School Bus Stopping Law

  • $250 fine
  • Five points on your driving record
  • 60-day license suspension
