 Snow Removal Information

All Borough and State roadways within the Borough are plowed and salted by Hatboro Borough. You can help in our efforts to clear the roads as quickly as possible by parking your car in a driveway or another (permitted) off-road location. And when shoveling your driveway, please remember to pile snow to the right of the driveway (if you are facing the street). In this way, the snow will be pushed away from the driveway entrance when the road is plowed.

For questions concerning snow removal please call Borough Hall at 215-443-9100. During a snow storm, our Public Works Department works to clear streets and keep Borough roads safe and passable. The staff at Borough Hall can answer any questions or concerns you may have regarding snow removal, plowing information, and other information.


Borough Ordinance requires all sidewalks to be cleared within twenty-four (24) hours after a snowfall. This is applied to all property owners, tenants and lessors. Also, please note it is unlawful to push snow into the street while clearing sidewalks, private walkways, and/or driveways.

Only vehicles with chains, snow tires or all-purpose tires are permitted on roads that are covered with three or more inches of snow or in any instances in which a snow emergency is declared. Any vehicle that has stalled, is incapable of moving under its own power and/or is left unattended on any street during a snow storm will be removed or towed at the owner's expense.

Free Mulch For Residents

Have you ever wondered what happens to the leaf bags and sticks you place curbside for collection? After our Public Works employees pick them up, the bags are transported to Abington Township's composting site where they are processed into mulch without added chemicals.

In an attempt to bring your recycling efforts full circle, the Borough is making this mulch available to Hatboro Residents free of charge. To make this mulch easily accessible to residents, the Public Works Department has constructed a temporary bin at Eaton Park (located off West Moreland Avenue, across from the Memorial Pool).

Residents are welcome to stop by the bin at any time to take as much mulch as they need. The Public Works Department will make every effort to keep an adequate supply on hand at all times. Unfortunately, we are not able to load trucks with mulch at this time. Please note that mulch is available on a first come, first serve basis. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact Borough Hall.
