Curbside Leaf Collection is a service provided by the Township as a courtesy to its residents and can only be accomplished by adhering to the
start dates as indicated. Since it is impossible for us to determine the volume of leaves that will be set out for collection, we cannot offer a
specific date as to when your leaves will be picked up. It is our intent to collect leaves that are placed at curbside on the start of each collection
cycle within a 10-day period.
Leaves may be brought into the Recycling Center throughout the year. The Center is open Monday through Friday except on holidays, 7:00 am
to 3:15 pm and on Saturday and Sunday 8:00 am to 3:45 pm. If you require further information call The Department of Public Works, Monday
through Friday, 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, (609) 693-1100, Ext. 2301.
- Leaves must be placed in trash bags or containers no larger than 32 gallons and weighing no more than 50 lbs. While we are encouraging environmental friendly biodegradable bags, plastic will be accepted during this transitional phase.
- There is no limit to the number of bags that may be placed at curbside for pickup. All leaf bags will be collected.
- Do not mix any debris in with your leaves. Leaf bags or containers containing debris or garbage will not be picked up.
- Do not rake leaves into a pile at curbside and do not rake them into the street. Violation notices will be issued by Code Enforcement.
- Keep leaf bags/containers away from your trash so as not to confuse the two.
