Curbside Leaf Collection

The Township offers a curbside leaf collection starting approximately the second week of October (weather dependent) until the last week in December. The Township is scheduled by (6) zones for purposes of the collection (please click on the zone map below).  This is an automated collection and certain restrictions apply (please click on Leaf Collection Guidelines below).

Leaf Collection Guidelines 

PLEASE be reminded that once the leaf crews have gone by your house, in order to keep to the schedule, we cannot accommodate requests for returns until the next scheduled pickup.  PLEASE do not place additional leaves out until then.  

If you hire a private landscaper or contractor to perform your leaf cleanup, please have them take the leaves with them.  If they are not equipped to do so, kindly ask them to schedule their cleanup of your property to coincide with our collection schedule so that the leaves are not out for a long period of time.

NO LEAVES SHOULD BE PLACED IN BAGS!

We utilize a leaf vacuum to collect the leaves.  Bags will damage the vacuum and possibly injure our crew.

Place your leaves in wind-rows (long, narrow, neat piles), curbside by the starting dates for your zone.

Do not place leaves within 10 feet of a storm drain inlet.

Do not park vehicles in front of leaf wind-rows…if we can’t reach your leaves we cannot pick them up!

The windrows should contain ONLY leaves.  No grass, twigs, branches, trash, dirt, concrete, metal, bushes or other debris are to be in leaf wind-rows.
