The Kingston Township Board of Supervisors has announced the Yard Waste/Bagged Leaf Pickup has been scheduled for November 2, 2015 through November 13, 2015. Residents are advised to have yard waste and bagged leaves placed at the curbside for pick-up. Yard waste consists of sticks and twigs bundled three (3) feet in length and one (1) foot in height and one (1) foot wide. Limit two (2) bundles. Large limbs will not be accepted. Township crews will be conducting the pick-up between the hours of 7 a.m. and 3 p.m., Monday through Friday.
The Township asks the cooperation of residents in refraining from sweeping leaves into gutters and roadways. The leaves block storm-drains and pose a serious maintenance problem for the Public Works Department. A Township Ordinance also prohibits this practice. Residents are reminded that bags must contain only leaves. NO GRASS CLIPPINGS. Residents are also reminded that Ordinance 2004-4 prohibits the burning of leaves.
Kingston Township Residents may also drop off leaves without bags and yard waste at the Composting Site located behind the Public Works Facility.
If anyone has questions about the Yard Waste and Bagged Leaf Pick-up, please call the Township Administrative Office at 570-696-3809 or the Public Works Department at 570-696-3650.

The Kingston Township Police Chief Michael Moravec would like to remind residents that the Township Winter Parking Ordinance is effective November 1, 2015, and running through March 31, 2016. Under this ordinance residents are prohibited from parking vehicles on Township streets between the hours of 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. daily. The Chief also reminds residents that vehicles are not permitted to be parked on Township streets during snowstorms, or for eight (8) hours after the end of a storm. The ordinance is designed to keep the Township streets open and clear so that snow removal measures can be effectively undertaken by the Public Works Department. The Chief urges all Township residents to cooperate in complying with the Township Ordinance to avoid enforcement measures. Residents with questions about the ordinance may contact Chief Moravec at 570-696-1175.
