Brush Removal

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. Your garbage service will take yard waste and roots for a nominal fee. IF IT IS BAGGABLE, IT IS YARD WASTE.

WHEN
We run our chipping equipment Year-Round, weather permitting. We are usually out weekly in the spring, summer, and fall. However, due to other work, it may be necessary to miss a week at certain times.

WHAT
Brush is hereby defined as trimmings from bushes or shrubs, as well as tree branches from trimming and/or pruning trees. The following are not considered to be brush: logs, stumps, grass clippings, flowers, weeds, plants, leaves, lumber or anything in plastic bags or other such containers.

Our brush pickup program is for the sole use of the residents of unincorporated Warren Township and shall not be used by contractors and/or residents clearing lots for homes, private roads, entrances or more open space.

Cutting down a tree is not considered to be trimming or pruning, and the township should not be expected to remove the debris. If you hire a service to remove a tree or clear a lot, please understand it is the responsibility of the service to remove or chip the brush.

All brush must be cut no longer than 8 feet in length and no larger than 6 inches in diameter.

Items which do not conform to these guidelines will not be picked up by the township and will be the sole responsibility of the homeowner as to their proper disposal.

NOTE
Anything over 6 inches in diameter should be cut into fireplace-length logs and used as such or given to neighbors for their fireplaces.

STORM DAMAGE
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.
