Brush and leaf collection generally occurs twice a year during the spring and fall. The Borough provides three different one-week collection periods in the spring, generally during the months of April, May and June. During the fall, collection takes place in September, October and November.

Brush Collection

Brush is not to be placed in the roadway. Please place brush at the edge of the lawn as per Storm Water Management Regulations. Brush must be ready for pickup the Sunday before the collection begins. Please have the cut ends of the brush facing the street. Do not place leaves or other yard debris on the brush as it will be left.

Once the collection has passed your house, it will not return until the next collection date. Brush will NOT be picked up if it is larger than three inches in diameter and NO stumps will be picked up. If you have any questions, call the Department of Works at (908) 638-6588 between 9 a.m.  and 3 p.m. weekdays.

Do not place brush or any other yard debris in the leaf pile as it will be left.
