Unincorporated Areas of DGT Only

We have established the following dates for our 2023 Brush Pickup Program, covering UNINCORPORATED AREAS ONLY. Please remember that while these are our target dates, delays (due to equipment failure, weather conditions, etc.) are always a possibility. Crews will only pass a house once during the scheduled pickup period.

Definition of Brush

Branches from bushes, shrubs and trees.

We Do Not Pickup

Thorny branches, logs, stumps, roots, grass clippings, flowers, weeds, plants, leaves, lumber and anything in bags or other containers.


Brush is to be placed on the parkway no earlier than one week before the pickup is scheduled to start in each area, and no later than 7:30 am on the date pickup begins. All brush must be cut in lengths under 6′ with pieces no larger than 3″ in diameter. We prefer that all brush be securely bundled with string or twine; no bundle should exceed 25 pounds. Wire is not acceptable for tying bundles. Items which do not conform to these guidelines will not be picked up by the Township; it will be the sole responsibility of the homeowner to dispose of them.
