Leaf Collection Notice

The Township has received numerous calls from residents concerning leaf disposal.  Due to the unusually warm weather this season the leaves have been slow in falling.  If you have leaves that need to be disposed of please consider the following options for disposal:

  • If you only have a few bags, please place them out with your regular trash in regular trash bags.  You do not have to put an extra bag sticker on them.  The drivers have been instructed to take them at no additional cost.
  • If you have a lot of bags, Vogel has agreed to do a pickup on Friday, December 8th.  Please call Vogel at 724-285-8844.  Identify yourself as a Butler Township resident and request to be put on the list for leaf pick up on Friday, December 8th.  Place your bags out at the curb Thursday night.  Please note: this is not a Township wide pick up.  You need to call in and request to be put on the pick up list to be serviced.
  • If you have the ability to transport your leaves, Stirling Landscaping, on Mercer Road, will take leaves from Butler Township residents at no cost.  Prior to your first drop off, please call their office at 724-287-7921, so that they can let you know where to drop off the leaves.  Please remove the leaves from the bags when you drop them off.

As a Reminder:  Burning is not permitted in Butler Township in December.
