Fall is Here!

Pool days are over and school is back in session. 

Please be mindful of school children crossing our streets and speed limits near our schools.

  • The leaves are already starting to change.  Listed below are the Saturday Leaf Pick Ups.
    • October 31st
    • November 14th
    • November 21st
    • December 5th
    • December 12th

    Remember to put your yard waste in the brown Kraft bags which are available at the Borough Office and at the gate near the Public Works building on W. Colebrook Street.  Branches and twigs may also be bundled with string or twine.  Both the bags and the bundles need to be labeled with the green yard waste tags.  You may purchase the tags for $1.50 each at the Borough Office or the Library, both located at 15 E. High Street, Manheim.

    WOODY YARD WASTE – NOTE: The last pickup date is October 15th!     Out cleaning up your yard? Pick some kraft bags up at the Borough office or by the gate near the Pubic Works building on W Colebrook Street.

  • STORM WATER INLETS –  As the leaves begin to fall, we all need to work together to get the storm water inlets cleared so the water can drain off the streets.  So please keep an eye on any inlets near your house and keep them clear if you can – if not, ask your neighbors or call into the Borough office if the job looks too big for you to handle.  And remember when mowing, not to blow or sweep grass clippings into the gutter.

  • SUMP PUMPS –  Please remember that the Borough requires that all sump pumps go through grass or yard before before getting into our storm water system. Also, no pump systems are permitted to be pumped directly into the sanitary (public sewer) system. If your system is connected to the sewer, it must be disconnected immediately. If you are not sure, please feel free to contact the Authority and their staff will be able to help you figure that out. The extra water in the system puts a strain on the sewer treatment plant and can result in problems for the Authority and increased cost for you.
