CHRISTMAS TREE COLLECTION

The Department of Neighborhood Services will be collecting Christmas trees starting the week of Monday, January 23rd.  Collection will take place over a two-week period and will end on Friday, February 3rd

Residents should place their trees at the street on their designated trash collection day with all stands, ornaments, and lights removed.  Trees that are flocked or treated with artificial snow cannot be recycled and should be brought to the DPW yard during regular hours. 

The DPW yard is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and every third Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm; excluding holidays. 

LEAF COLLECTION

Crews are still performing Leaf Collection in Zone 4 that have not received their second and final collection.  Crews are also in Zone 5 making their second and final collection. 

Zone 1:  Week of 11/28/2016  (COMPLETE)

Zone 2:  Week of 12/5/2016  (COMPLETE)

Zone 4:  Week of 12/19/2016 – ONGOING

Due to the weather conditions during collection of Zone 1 and the fact that many leaves did not fall until late November, crews will make one final pass through Zone 1.  This will take place the first week of January, 2017.  Residents in Zone 1 should place their leaves at the street before Tuesday, January 3rd to ensure collection. 

Residents in all other Zones who have leaves to be disposed of may bring them to the DPW yard during regular hours.  The DPW yard is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and every third Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm; excluding holidays. 

BRUSH COLLECTION

Brush collection for the entire Township was completed in October 2016.  Brush collection will resume in March of 2017.  The schedule will be posted in the next few weeks.  Residents who still have branches and limbs to dispose of may bring them to the DPW yard during regular hours.

The DPW yard is open Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm and every third Saturday from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm; excluding holidays. 

BRUSH COLLECTION REMINDER:  Do not place brush at the street for collection.  Brush Collection for 2016 has been completed and no additional collections are scheduled until the Spring of 2017.  Residents who place material at the street will be cited for violation of Township Code.
