The Department of Public Works (DPW) is responsible for the maintenance of all public property including roadways and infrastructure. Among many functions, the Department manages the recycling, leaf, brush and bulk waste collection programs, is responsible for the upkeep of park and recreation facilities and the removal of snow from roadways. The Township is divided into zones for purposes of scheduling and delivering services in the most efficient manner possible. On an annual basis, DPW publishes this calendar of services.
Solid Waste/Recycling Bureau
The Township provides numerous leaf and brush removal pickup dates, which means that debris is in or near our road and sidewalk areas during many months of the year. It is critical that all debris be placed for pickup in accordance with the published schedule and regulations of the Township. Leaves and brush must not be commingled. Aside from detracting from the appearance of our Township, debris left in the streets impedes the flow of storm-water and exacerbates flood conditions. It causes traffic and safety hazards for pedestrians, bicyclists and motorists and interferes with snow removal during the winter months. Landscapers or residents placing debris for collection in an unauthorized manner shall be required to remove the waste from the public right of way.
All curbside collections are “Weather Permitting”. Based upon weather conditions and forecasts, the Office of Emergency Management (OEM) will determine whether or not collections will proceed according to the schedule. Residents will be notified in advance via Township email and social media if a collection will be cancelled or postponed, in which case no debris should be placed for collection.
