Brush Chipping Guidelines 

Brush Pick-Up Guidelines

Residents who wish to participate in the program must fill out the online form on the Township website or call ahead to schedule the pick-up. Pick up must be scheduled no later than the Friday before your scheduled Monday. Any requests (via on-line or by phone) made after 4 p.m. on Friday will not be accepted.

You should place the brush and tree trimmings by the road prior to the scheduled pick-up date. You may refer to the chart below for your scheduled date. Brush chipping crews will spend one week in each section, therefore if they don’t pick up your brush on Monday, they will continue through the rest of the week until they have completed the entire section. Because of time constraints, however, they will not be able to return to a street/road after the brush pick-up has been completed. Pick-up begins on the scheduled Monday at 7:00 a.m., the trucks and crews will make only one pass on each street; please do not call to request special pick-ups. As much as the Township would like to accommodate requests for pick-up outside of the scheduled day, the Public Works crews must adhere to the established pick-up schedule in order to administer the program effectively and efficiently.


Homeowners wishing to participate in the brush pick-up program must have their brush at the curb by 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled day (Monday).


Please do not put brush out after 7:00 a.m. on the first day of the collection cycle. 

·        Trimmings should be placed by the roadside, stacked neatly with the cut ends toward the road.

·        Limbs should be cut in 4 to 12 foot lengths

·        Limbs should not exceed 4” in diameter.


The following material will not be collected:

·        Trash, thorny materials, plants, leaves and grass, wood with nails or wire in it, dirt or rocks will not be chipped or picked up. These items are dangerous and may cause damage to the grinding equipment used to make mulch, or may injure an employee.

·        Brush cut or trimmed by contractors. Persons hired by the property owners are responsible for removing material.

·        Small twigs and branches less than 18” in length.

·        Material cleared from lots or undeveloped property

·        Material put in bags, boxes, or trash containers.


Wood chipping: Each resident is allowed fifteen minutes of chipping. Brush is limited to an amount that would fill the back of a small pick up truck. Residents with a larger amount should contact a professional tree service.
