Brush and Leaf Collection

As of May 1, 2018, the Township has joined Bellefonte Borough and Spring Township in utilizing the Bellefonte Composting facility located along Musser Lane in Bellefonte (Near Home Delivery Pizza).  Dumping of brush is no longer being accepted at the Township Municipal Building. This facility will accept grass, leaves and brush.  Saturday hours are available without the need for a key from 8 a.m. to 11:45 a.m. from April through November 17th.  If you desire to go outside of the Saturday operating hours, you may sign out a key with a $10 deposit during Benner Township’s normal office hours of 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Monday – Friday.  The key deposit will be refunded upon the return of the key.  If the key is not returned by the end of the day to the office, privileges may be suspended.

Benner Township collects brush in the spring and in the fall using a call in system.   You MUST call 355-1419 no later than 4/26/19 to be placed on the spring 2019 brush collection list.  Brush must be placed at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on April 29th. Please refer to your Crossroads Newsletter for dates and instructions.


Benner Township collects leaves in the fall by appointment only.  You will also need to call the Township Office at 355-1419.  Generally two weeks are established.   We will asked that depending on which week you choose that your leaves be out that Monday morning.  Again depending on how many places are on the list it may be a few days until they make it to your location.  If you have leaves, please call to get on the list.  We try to structure the collection programs to be as efficient as possible to save fuel and man hours.  Leaf collection will cease before all leaves come down.  We understand that not all leaves fall at the same time, but the equipment that we use is also used for snow removal and must be converted to doing so.
