Spring Leaf and Branch Collection


The Township is presently working to clear storm tree debris from areas of the Township. You should contact a landscaper or tree contractor for items larger than 6 inches in diameter, stumps or root balls. We will not be adhering to any set schedule at this time as there will be multiple crews working simultaneously. Please do not contact Town Hall about a pile of branches to be picked up, we will continue to work throughout the Township until the piles are collected. Priority will be given to areas hardest hit as well as where piles are creating a safety/hazard concern. This process is expected to take quite some time due to the volume, please be patient. To verify your zone, please call 732-968-1023 x6689. A regular spring branch/leaf pickup will take place starting on April 15th, see schedule below:

  • April 16 –South of Route 22
