Sept 15, 2015 -- Brush Update from the Neighborhood Services Dept: 

Brush collection throughout the Township is ongoing.  Zone 2 has been completed including Deerbrook, Birchwood Lakes, Sherwood Forest, Oakwood Lakes, and Medford Commons; as well as parts of Zone 5 including Taunton Trace, and Hoot Owl.  Areas where brush has been collected will not receive another collection in 2015.  
Our crews are completing Zone 5 now, and will move into Zone 1 by weeks end; while the contractor continues to collect in Lake Pine.  The contractor will continue to collect in Zone 4 and eventually move in a southeasterly direction, to collect everything in Zone 3.  
This will be the final collection of 2015.  We ask that all residents make sure your brush is not placed on top of utility boxes for phone or cable.  Damage to your utility box can interrupt service and could result in the homeowner being charged by the utility company.  We appreciate your patience and consideration.”





On August 18th the Township Council awarded a contract to an outside firm to assist in the collection of brush and trees from the June storm.  
Work under this contract started Friday, August 21st, with the contractor given 60 days maximum to collect the brush.  Township staff are also continuing their brush collection efforts. This will be the final brush collection in 2015, so residents should insure all brush is out curbside now.   

We also remind residents that brush must not be in the roadway and impede traffic nor should it cover any storm sewers.  Brush collection details can be found here on our website:

Periodic updates will be announced on the Township website as we finish up different areas of the Township.  Thank you for your patience and understanding 

Residents who cannot wait for crews to collect their material have the option of bringing their material to the DPW yard Monday through Friday from 7:00 am to 2:00 pm; and every third Saturday from 7:00 am to 12:00 pm.  Contractors are not permitted to dispose of this material at the DPW yard.
