Automated Curb Side Yard Waste Collection Coming in May!

The Mayor and Township Committee are pleased to announce that curbside yard-waste collection is coming to Harrison Township. This has been a long awaited and much requested service.  Yard waste collection is typically a labor intensive and cost prohibitive service.  After years of research and analysis of the available programs, we decided on a predominately automated system.  This system is designed to maximize manpower and efficiency, which in turn will mitigate cost to the township and to the taxpayers.  As with any new program, there will always be a learning curve, but since this is a cart-based collection, it should be a relatively smooth transition.  The carts will be arriving at the Public Works Building in the next two weeks.  They will be dark brown carts similar to your trash and recycling carts.  As we await the arrival of the collection trucks, you may call the Public Works Department at 223-1308 to put your name on the list for a cart to be picked up or to be delivered to you.  Initially each “requesting” residence will be provided with one cart.  After a period of time, more carts may be requested.  Upon implementation, you will put your cart out on the same day as your trash and recycling collection from May through November.  PLEASE DO NOT PUT YOUR CART OUT UNTIL MAY 1ST.  See the below for the guidelines on using your new yard waste cart.  Please visit the township website for updates on the roll out of this program.

Thank you.
