 Individual waste haulers operating within Franconia Township are required to offer a curbside leaf  waste collection program.  The leaf collection program itself, is an effort by the Township to implement a program where residents can dispose of leaf waste through a curbside collection. Act 101 defines "leaf waste" as "leaves, garden residues, shrubbery and tree trimmings, and similar material, but not including grass clippings." At a minimum two collection dates must be offered by your private hauler, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Please remember:


  1. Leaves must be placed in the biodegradable paper leaf bags. Plastic bags will not be accepted. Free Leaf bags can be obtained at the Township Building located at 671 Allentown Road, Telford PA. The bags are available to Franconia Township residents only!! The office is opened Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. until 4:30 p.m.
  2. The bags must only contain leaf waste. Other household refuse or grass clippings cannot be intermixed with the leaf waste. Bags containing items other than leaf waste will not be picked up by the hauler.
  3. Place the leaf bags at the curb or street side where normal trash is picked up. The leaf bags and leaves will be picked up. The bags will not be dumped and returned.

Below is a schedule of pick-up dates from the individual haulers that have been provided to the Township. This is not a complete list. If you have any questions about the pick-up please contact your individual hauler. 

Advanced Disposal: November 8th & December 6th

Allied Waste: November 13th & December 11th

Whitetail Disposal: Up to 3 bags every pick-up for the month of October


Franconia community park rain garden project 

You may have noticed some digging and construction activity at the Franconia Community Park. The Franconia Township Public Works Department is in the process of installing a rain garden. The rain garden project was selected for grant funding through the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development. It will provide both a mechanism for managing stormwater runoff and providing information to the park patrons about the benefits of rain gardens. Click here to read more about the project or click here to view additional pictures. The final plantings will be added this Fall with the completion of the project scheduled for October 2014.
