Leaf Collection & Yard Waste

Leaf Collection

The Township has a leaf collection program whereby leaves are collected and transported to a farm or composting facility. Leaves are collected from mid-October through mid-December. The township’s contracted hauler collects leaves at curbside in township provided Kraft bags.

The township sells Kraft bags for 50 cents per bag (cash or check only).

Yard Waste

The township sells Kraft bags for 50 cents per bag (cash or check only). Collection runs from April 1 through October 15 each year.  

Garden residue, grass clippings, leaves*, etc. must be placed in biodegradable Kraft bags. A separate truck will pick up the bags on the same day as your regular trash pick up during the months listed above. During the winter months, place yard waste in garbage bags. Remember, trash is limited to three (3) thirty two gallon containers, so extra service tags may be required to have extra containers  collected.

Please note: yard waste can be very heavy. Make sure each bag does not weigh more than thirty (30) pounds or it will not be picked up.

Woody Waste

Collected throughout the year, FREE OF CHARGE, woody material includes tree and shrub pruning, bushes, twigs and branches. Please bundle with a biodegradable twine in lengths of no longer than four feet and weighing no more than 30 pounds. No extra service tags are required for this special pickup, but there is limit of ten bundles per week.
