Leaf & Branch Collection

Chipping Collection

Beginning April 8. 2019, the Township will start a Spring chipping program. This will be slightly different than the brush collection program the Township carried out in recent years. 

All branches must be out for pickup on the first day of the schedule for your section. Absolutely no branches will be collected once a section is completed; there will be no more than one pick-up per household. There will be no exceptions to the published schedule. 

Branches should be placed in neat piles at curbside with large diameter cut-ends towards the street. The largest size branches shall be limited to four (4) inches in diameter. Short branches under two feet in length will not be accepted. You do not need to tie them together with twine.

NOT ACCEPTED:

  • Lumber
  • Building Materials
  • Fence Posts
  • Leaves
  • Roots
  • Stumps
  • Briars
  • Vines
  • Metal
  • Decayed Branches or other debris that can damage the chipper

Any material of the above nature will be left for your disposal. 

This program is for yard branch clean up only and is not intended to be used as a tree disposal program. Residents should not have trees cut down and placed at the curb for pickup with this program. If this happens, the piles will be rejected and left for your disposal. Please contact Public Works with any questions prior to putting out your branches, at 908-464-2700, ext. 2167

Fall Leaf Collection Program

The Fall Leaf Collection Program will commence the second week of October.  The Town will be divided into 5 sections; more details on which sections will be picked up on what weeks will be available in September 2019.

Leaves should be put into paper bags and left curb side, accessible by machine. We use a process of loading the leaves into a compacting truck body in order to clean an area safely and efficiently. Please do not include any other type of debris in your leaf bags.

Please contact us if your pile is rejected.
