Definition of Brush
Branches from bushes, shrubs and trees.
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.
We do not pick up: flowers, grass clippings, leaves, lumber, logs, plants, roots, stumps, thorny branches, weeds, and anything in bags or other containers. NO EXCEPTIONS. View PDF of Non Compliance.
