The upcoming collection schedule can be accessed anytime, by calling (732) 968-1023 x 6689.  It can also be found on the Township website, at http://www.greenbrooktwp.org/municipal-services/public-works/, along with the listing of streets.

The program is for routine maintenance, not for lot clearing.  Excessive piles will not be collected.  Leaves may be bagged or raked to the curb line, but may not be placed in the street.  Grass clippings are not collected.  Branches should be stacked for easy chipping, all facing one direction.  Stickers should be stacked separately. The Township does NOT collect root balls or stumps of any kind. 

Leaves & Branches should be placed curbside – not in the street

Branches        

Branches up to 6” diameter should be left whole

Sticker bushes should be kept separate

This is for maintenance – large piles will not be accepted

Leaves   

Pile leaves curbside for pick-up by the leaf vacuum – Do not place in street

Place bagged leaves curbside – Do not place in street

Bags available from local hardware store or from Town Hall Monday-Friday, 8:30-4:00

ONLY leaves (no other yard debris or garbage)

Bagging leaves has several benefits to both the residents and the Township:

  • Leaves in bags will not blow around during windy periods, therefore residents would not need to re-rake.
  • Bagging leaves keeps the leaves out of the gutter/street, making the stormwater run-off more effective and making the streets more passable.
  • Bagged leaves can be collected in any weather, unlike the leaf vacuum which only works on dry leaf piles. 

        Our hope is that residents will try this method, making leaf collection go more smoothly for all.

DO NOT place the leaves in the gutter.  If there are no curbs, rake the leaves to the end of the grass. 

DO NOT include any branches, grass clippings, cans, bottles, or debris in the leaf piles.  Foreign materials can cause  damage to the equipment and injury to personnel.  Leaves with twigs, branches, or other debris will not be collected and the homeowner will be responsible for disposal. 

DO NOT place leaves within 10’ of any storm drain or fire hydrant.

DO NOT park vehicles over leaf piles.  This not only makes it impossible to pick up the leaves, it is a significant fire hazard.

DO NOT place leaves curbside until one week before scheduled pickup.  Leaves put out on or after your collection date will not be collected.  If leaves are not collected, a tag will be left for the homeowner with the reason.
