Among many diverse duties, the major responsibility of the Department of Public Works is the maintenance of all Township roads and parks. Consisting of 11 full-time employees, the Department also plows all municipal roads and conducts the annual leaf collection program.
The Department also performs most of the maintenance required on all municipal vehicles. In a typical year, the Department uses about 750 tons of rock salt and 1,500 tons snow grits, plus 3,500 gallons of calcium chloride for snow and ice control activities. The leaf collection program is one of the Department's major activities, collecting 1500 cubic yards of leaves collected over a span of two months in the fall. Routine road patching consumes about 1200 tons of asphalt in a typical year.

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. This is a voluntary program, residents preferring to compost leaves or dispose of them on their own, may do so.
Leaf collection will begin Monday, October 29, 2018. DPW will have crews out at different parts of the Township. Due to the nature of leaf collection and the weather, we are not able to predict when leaf collection will occur in your neighborhood. Leaf collection will continue as long as the weather permits.
Please keep in mind the following:
1. Leaves must be raked and curbside.
2. Piles of leaves with sticks, branches and grass clipping will NOT be accepted.
3. Bagged leaves will not be accepted.
4. Please do not rake leaves into the roadway, as this obstructs drainage.
Public Works appreciates your cooperation and patience to ensure the program’s success.
LEAF PICK-UP IS SUBJECT TO CHANGE AND IS WEATHER DEPENDENT.
