* Fall Leaf Collection * Loose leaves, piled at the curb are collected in the fall, from mid-October through Christmas. The actual schedule is published late summer and can be found in the Trash Information tab where the many service schedules are posted. Outside of the Fall Season yard waste should be bagged or in cans, of no more than 35 pounds in weight please. (Bags are collected faster than cans, due to equipment availability.)
Notice to Residents
We want to clear up some confusion on the collection of certain items within our township...
1. Cardboard- There has been an increase in the amount of cardboard being placed curbside on trash collection days. Cardboard needs to be placed out on Monday’s with recycling. The only cardboard to be placed into the trash would be all pizza boxes, and cardboard with glued Styrofoam. Packing Materials such as packing peanuts are to be placed into trash. Cardboard cannot be used as a container for trash. Cardboard placed out on trash day will not be collected.
2. Grass and Yard Debris- Lawns are encouraged to be mulched. In the event that can’t be done, grass clippings along with other yard debris such as leaves, vegetable plants, clippings from smaller floral type plants can be bagged and or containerized (Trash Can) for collection. NO Chipping debris (Branches for the Chipper), trash or pet waste can be placed into the bags and or containers. Bags and containers found to have chipping material, trash and pet waste contained within will not be collected until corrected. While this can be placed curbside on your trash collection day, this will be a separate collection from the normal trash collection. Bags and Containers can’t weight over 35lbs for the safety of our workers. Blowing and or discharging grass and yard debris into our streets is prohibited. This act is against the New Jersey Department of Environmental Storm Water Rules and Regulations. These debris are unsightly, clog our water drains, and add sediment to Creeks and Ditches. Reminder: Debris generated by a contractor (Landscaper and or Lawn Maintenance) must be taken away by the contractor.
3. Chipping Debris- Small Limbs and branches that are trimmed and or taken down by the homeowner can be placed curbside for collection. Collection of these materials are the 1st full week and 3rd weeks of each month. Chipping must remain separated from grass and yard debris. Root systems from bushes pulled from the ground and such are to be washed clean from dirt prior to placing curbside for collection. Make sure when placing debris curbside for collection that the butt ends of the branches all face the same way. Also try not to block drainage paths and storm drains on the road surface. Reminder: Debris generated by a contractor must be taken away by the contractor.
