Fall Leaf Collection

Beginning October 21, 2019, the Township will start a Fall Leaf Collection program.  

Please put leaves in paper biodegradable bags and leave curb side accessible by machine. Plastic bags will NOT be accepted. Please do NOT block catch basins. 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. No bags will be collected once a section is completed. There will be no exceptions to the published schedule. Bags should be placed in neat piles at curbside. 

NOT ACCEPTED:

  • Branches
  • Lumber
  • Building Materials
  • Fence Posts
  • Roots
  • Stumps
  • Briars
  • Vines
  • Metal
  • Grass
  • Flowers
  • Rocks

Any material of the above will be left for your disposal. This program is for leaf pick 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 leaf bags at 908-464-2700, ext. 2167
