The Public Works Yard will open for brush drop off on the 2nd and 4th Saturdays of the month from 8am-3pm through Saturday, November 12. Residents are entitled to drop off two free pick-up truck sized loads of brush each year. Residents in need of additional brush drop off may purchase additional tickets from the Clerk's office, in person only, for $10.00 each. Clerk hours are 8:30am-4:30pm. Tickets CANNOT be purchased at the Public Works Yard.
PROPER ID is required to prove residency upon drop off.
LEAF PICKUP PROGRAM – 2016
The leaf pick-up schedule for the Township will be as follows:
Eastern Zone-Beginning Monday, October 24, 2016 all streets east of Route 31 will be serviced. Upon completion of those roads, the crew will move to all roads west of Route 31.
Western Zone – Will commence upon completion of the Eastern Zone. It is estimated at this time that the Western Zone will begin about November 14th.
LEAF PICK-UP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND IS WEATHER DEPENDENT.
After the Western Zone is complete, DPW will come back through the Eastern Zone for a second pickup.
Please keep in mind the following:
- Leaves must be raked and curbside prior to your scheduled zone date.
- Piles of leaves with sticks, branches and grass clipping will NOT be accepted.
- Bagged leaves will not be accepted.
- Please do not rake leaves into the roadway, as this obstructs drainage.
This is a voluntary program, residents preferring to compost leaves or dispose of on their own property, may do so.
The purpose of the leaf collections program is to help alleviate the abundance of leaves that will cover the street and clog the storm drains. It is not intended to be a lawn service that ensures all your leaves will be collected from your lawn. We will do the best we can with one pass down your street. As mentioned above, since we start the Eastern Zone when all leaves may not be down yet, we will make a second pass through that zone.
Public Works anticipates and appreciates your cooperation to ensure the program’s success.
