Welcome to East Stroudsburg

2018 YARD WASTE COLLECTION SCHEDULE

The Borough offers a bimonthly curbside Yard Waste Pickup Program, which is held from April through October of each year.  Borough crews will pick up yard waste at curbside on the same days of regular recycling pick-ups in the Borough according to the schedule below.  Residents may place at curbside for pick up, on these weeks only, a reasonable quantity of woody yard wastes materials from your own property – including tree branches, limbs and cuttings, small bushes (without the root ball), hedges, and tree logs not exceeding five inches (5”) in diameter.  The Borough crews will not pick up leaves, grass clippings, flowers, vines, roots, or garden/vegetable plants as part of these yard waste collections.  The yard waste materials collected will be transported to the Recycling Center on Lincoln Avenue where the branches/yard wastes will be ground up and processed for mulch.

The upcoming Schedule for 2018 year Borough Yard Waste Pickups is as follows:

Monday – Thursday, August 6 – 9
Monday – Thursday, October 1 – 4

Residents should place their yard wastes at curbside on the same day of the week as their regular recycling pickup during the above week dates only.  Branches and limbs must be cut into manageable lengths (no more than 4 ft.), tied or bundled and stacked as best possible, alongside the road in front of your residence but not on the road pavement.

Borough residents may also continue to bring yard wastes to the Twin Borough Recycling Center off Lincoln Avenue during regular Center hours. The yard waste program is for Borough residents and property owners only. Anyone bringing in yard wastes from outside the Borough will be prosecuted for violation of Borough ordinance requirements.

Please remember that the Borough garbage contractor, Waste Management of PA, Inc., is not responsible for picking up branches, limbs, and other “woody” yard waste materials under their refuse contract with the Borough.

Borough residents may also pick up at the Recycling Center, free of charge, mulch that is produced from the ground-up yard wastes (depending on availability). Please be advised, however, that you have to shovel and load your own mulch!

Click on the following links for more information about the East Stroudsburg Borough:


The Borough of East Stroudsburg was created by an Act of the Pennsylvania State Legislature and incorporated as a Borough in 1870. Our municipality includes an area of approximately 2.5 square miles and a resident population of over 10,000.


East Stroudsburg Borough originally was the industrial center of Monroe County due to the railroad. Now it is home to the two largest service institutions in the county, East Stroudsburg University and Lehigh Valley Hospital – Pocono.

The Borough operates under the provisions of the Borough Code of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. Borough Council (the legislative branch of the local government) is made up of six (6) members, who are elected by wards. The administrative branch of the Borough government is directed by a professional administrator (Borough Manager) appointed by Council. The elected Mayor serves as the official “Head of State”.  A separately elected Tax Collector is responsible for collecting borough and county real estate taxes.
