Leaf & Yard Waste Pickup
What is Leaf Waste?
Leaf waste is defined as “leaves, garden residue, shrubbery, tree trimmings, and similar materials.”
The first pickup of each year is to be scheduled during spring, and the second pickup will be scheduled in the fall. The specific dates of collection are to be determined by the haulers and shall be communicated to their customers. All haulers will be required to also provide a complete schedule of pickups to the township, which will be posted on the township's website.
All residents are required to place leaf waste in biodegradable leaf bags available from area stores such as Home Depot and Lowes. A limit of 10 bags per property is established for each of the two pickups by haulers. Haulers may reject Leaf Waste in plastic bags, or other nonbiodegradable containers, or any bag contaminated by non-Leaf Waste.
In addition to the collection of Leaf Waste by haulers, Township residents may drop-off Leaf Waste at the Township's Compost Site on Longford Road. Dates and locations will be published on the Township website and announced at public meetings. The dropped-off Leaf Waste must also be packaged in biodegradable leaf bags.
