FranconiaTownship is required through DEP and Act 101 to provide a curbside leaf collection program. All authorized private haulers operating within Franconia Township are required to provide this service to our residents. They are to abide by the provisions outlined by DEP. We have contacted the haulers and requested an updated schedule of collection dates. You can visit our recycling page to view this schedule, which will be updated as the information is received. 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. These items are then taken to a composting facility. Through this program we can eliminate the need to burn leaves. Composting is a beneficial process that allows for the reuse of materials and it is safer for the environment. You can read more about our leaf program by clicking here. Free leaf bags are available for Franconia Township residents. Please stop in at the municipal building located at 671 Allentown Road during our normal business hours- M-F from 8:00 am- 4:30 pm.
