As a reminder the West Donegal Township office will be closed November 26 and 27 for the holiday. We wish all our residents a Happy Thanksgiving.

Final Leaf Collection

The last leaf collection for this year will take place on Tuesday, December 1 and Wednesday, December 2 on your regularly scheduled pickup day. Any leaves after this time should be placed in a regular garbage bag and placed with your garbage. These bags will then count towards your weekly limit of (3) 32 gallon bags. Woody waste pickup will resume in the spring.
