Brush Collection Update, 3/12/18
The Township is aware of the amount of tree parts and debris that has been left curbside due to the heavy snowfall on March 7, 2018. Township Officials have been in contact with County and State officials regarding the state of emergency and pursuit of FEMA funding to assist in cleanup efforts due to the large amounts of trees and debris. The Township will be mobilizing as soon as possible to begin collection of brush and tree parts. Residents who have brush and tree parts may place the material within the right-of-way in front of their homes. Brush piles should be placed neatly out of the roadway and out of the lane of travel. Material should not be placed near mailboxes, fire hydrants, or utility boxes. Branches and limbs should be cut in lengths no longer than eight (8) feet. Larger tree trunks should be cut in lengths that are three (3) feet or less. Material larger than ten (10) inches in diameter and tree stumps cannot be collected. The Township will begin regular brush pickup starting in April and will adhere to the following schedule:
Zone 4: Week of April 2
Zone 3: Week of April 16
Zone 2: Week of April 30
Zone 1: Week of May 14
Zone 5: Week of May 29
Residents who cannot wait for a roadside collection may also bring this material to the DPW yard any Monday through Friday, from 7 am to 2 pm. The yard is also open on the third Saturday of each month from 8 am to 1 pm. Saturday hours for the spring include March 17th, April 7th, April 21st, May 5th, May 19th, and June 2nd.
