BRUSH & TREE PART COLLECTION

Brush Collection

Dear Residents,

Beginning the week of April 30, 2018, the Department of Public Works will begin collecting brush and tree parts.  We are contracting with private haulers and a wood chipping crew to assist us with this project.  The estimated time for completion of debris removal is six weeks.  We ask that all residents place brush & tree parts at the curb (not in the roadway) using the following guidelines:

ACCEPTABLE MATERIALS

  • Branches and tree parts:
  • Cut into four foot (4’) lengths or smaller.
  • Diameter of the branches should not exceed six inches (6”).
  • Placed neatly in piles along the curb line with cut ends facing in the same direction. 
  • Do not place in the street or on the sidewalk.
  • Twigs, small branches, and light brush may be placed in trash cans not exceeding 50 lbs. in weight.

UNACCEPTABLE MATERIALS

  • Trees, branches, and tree parts which exceed six (6”) inches in diameter or four feet (4’) in length.
  • Stumps
  • Dirt, grass, and loose piles of leaves.

It is the responsibility of the property owner to dispose of any trees or tree parts which do not meet these requirements. 

Your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated.

If you have any questions, please contact our Department of Public Works office at 973-326-7398.


Sincerely,

Thomas J. Eschmann

Superintendent
