Brush Collection Guidelines

  • Leaves and other yard waste should be placed in biodegradable paper bags, open containers, or tied and bundled as appropriate. Yard waste should NOT be included in with your regular garbage.
  • Branches and limbs should be cut into 4’ lengths and securely tied in bundles with a total weight not exceeding 50 pounds.
  • NO PLASTIC BAGS will be collected. Biodegradable PAPER leaf bags ONLY will be collected. Residents may obtain Biodegradable PAPER leaf bags from the Department of Public Works facility at 136 Scotch Road. (Call 609-882-3382 for availability.)
  • Please be sure to keep the debris out of the street and away from the storm drains. Township Ordinances require that yard waste not be placed closer than 10 feet from any storm drain inlet (§ 319-31). Please reference our Stormwater Pollution Prevention page for additional information about this topic.
  • FYI, residential brush can also be brought to the Township’s Convenience Center on Jack Stephan Way, Mondays -Saturdays from 7:30am - 2:30pm.

Please, under no circumstances should loose or piled grass be placed at the curb. We encourage you to leave your grass clippings on your lawn for a healthier lawn. For more information about this see our Grasscycling information.
