Township crews will begin Spring Brush Collection on Monday, March 29th. The schedule for the Spring Collection is as follows:
Zone 1: Week of March 29
Zone 3: Week of April 12
Zone 5: Week of April 26
Zone 4: Week of May 10
Zone 2: Week of May 24

Brush should be placed at the street no earlier than ten (10) days before a collection is scheduled to begin in your Zone.

All brush must be piled neatly at the edge of the property and cannot be placed in any roadway or sidewalk. Brush should not exceed 4-6 feet in length, and should not be any larger than 12 inches in diameter. As a reminder for those residents who utilize a private contractor, the contractor is responsible for the removal of the brush from the property. Each street will be collected once.

Township Code states “All brush shall be stored on a resident's property and shall not be placed at the roadside earlier than 10 days preceding the Monday of the scheduled collection week.” Brush placed at the street for collection outside of these collection dates will not be collected. Residents who have material at the street now are in violation of Township code and risk formal citation. Residents are asked to move their material away from the street until crews are expected to begin collections in your Zone.

Brush shall include the pruning of trees, shrubs, bushes or vines, but exclude grass clippings, flowers, weeds, tree trunks, stumps, and leaves. If the excluded items are mixed with the brush, the material will not be collected.
