Yard Waste Management

The Borough of Myerstown provides selected services to assist its residents with yard waste management.

Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Program
Each year at the beginning of the spring season and the end of the fall season, the Department of Public Works collects and disposes of all properly-bagged acceptable yard waste for property owners in the borough on selected dates.  The collection dates are posted in the "News and Announcements" section of the Borough's website, posted on the Borough's social media pages, and advertised in the Myerstown Area Merchandiser.  The dates can also be obtained by contacting the Borough Office.

Acceptable Yard Waste consists of leaves and small sticks.

Yard Waste must be properly bagged in clear plastic bags, which can be purchased at the Borough Office at the Myerstown Community Center at 101 S. Railroad St. for 25 cents per bag.  

Bags must be placed at the curbside before 7:00 A.M. on advertised collection days.  Bags may be placed at the curbside in the evening the night before collection day and left overnight for morning pickup.

If you have large branches that are too big to fit in the proper bags, contact the Public Works Department at (717) 866-6948 and leave a message with your name, address and phone number.  A staff member will return your call to arrange a collection time.


Christmas Tree Collection Program
Each year after the Christmas season, the Department of Public Works collects and disposes of Christmas Trees for property owners in the borough on selected dates.  The collection dates are posted in the "News and Announcements" section of the Borough's website, posted on the Borough's social media pages, and advertised in the Myerstown Area Merchandiser.  The dates can also be obtained by contacting the Borough Office.

Trees must be free of all decorations, and not in a bag.

Trees must be placed at the curbside before 7:00 A.M. on advertised collection days.  Trees may be placed at the curbside in the evening the night before collection days and left overnight for morning pickup.
