Fall Leaf Collection: The Upper Macungie Township Department of Public Works will begin its 2013 Leaf Collection Program on Monday, October 14th and continue through Friday, November 29th.

After that, yard wastes may be deposited at the UMT Yard Waste Drop-off Site.  UMT’s Yard Waste Site is located on Grim Road near the intersection with Schantz Road, next to the Public Works garage.  It is a service made available exclusively to township residents.

Contractors and businesses are NOT permitted to use this facility.

UMT residents may drop-off grass clippings, leaves, shrubs and small trees.  All waste must be removed from bags.  Please remember that grass must be separated from other yard-waste.  Shrubs and small trees no longer than 4 feet long and 5 inches wide are accepted.
