The Lower Merion Public Works Department reminds residents that fall leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper bags; plastic bags will not be accepted.
Biodegradable brown paper bags may be purchased at the Transfer Station at the Public Works Complex on Woodbine Avenue for 49 cents a bag, or $24.50 for 50 bags, plus tax. Bags also may be purchased at local hardware stores.
Leaves will be taken for weekly collection on your normal collection day. The Public Works Department also notes that leaves may not be raked, blown or dumped in Township parks, properties or streets.
