Yard Waste Collections


Yard Waste Collection - Fall 

Leaf Collection

The Township contracts with the garbage hauler for the collection of leaves for an eight week period. The eight week period is determined annually and generally is from mid to late October thru the last week of November or early December. All leaves must be bagged in biodegradable paper bags and placed at the curb for pickup on the designated day of the week.

Biodegradable paper bags are available at cost at the Township Offices, Monday thru Friday, 8:00 AM - 4:30 PM. Leaf bags are 60 cents per bag or $3 for a pack of 5 bags.

Please do not place grass clippings in the bag as grass decomposes at a slower rate than leaves and usually contains potential toxins from fertilizers, pesticides and herbicides that do not compost well with leaf waste. Residents are encouraged to compost leaf waste on their property. For more information regarding leaf compost, please visit their website.
