Highway Department News
The Brush Removal Program is for homeowners’ convenience. We have a brush chipper designed to chip limbs and branches that do not qualify as yard waste. Our equipment is not designed to grind small twigs and evergreen trimmings.
After a severe storm, the Township will start brush pickup to remove debris. A severe storm is defined as a storm producing enough damage that the Township Road Crews need to clear roads and right-of-ways of trees/branches for traffic. Please follow the brush pickup guidelines.
Residents should have leaves at the curb by 6:00 a.m. on your collection day. Leaves should be raked to the street where the vacuum trucks will collect them. Do not rake leaves onto the street as this creates a traffic hazard and has negative impacts on stormwater drainage. Leaves placed in plastic bags will not be collected. Finally, please note your leaf collection day may not be the same day as your regular garbage pick-up.
