 Metal appliances and large items are picked up on Thursday only.

Any contractor construction debris must be removed by the contractor.

For a safer, cleaner street, brush should be placed out for pick-up no earlier than 48 HOURS prior to scheduled pick-up date.

We ask your cooperation in making Brush Pick-up more efficient by observing the following guildlines:

  1. NO BRANCHES OR LIMBS MORE THAN 3 INCHES IN DIAMETER WILL BE PICKED UP. Only branches, limbs and logs that can be chipped will be collected.
  2. SMALL LIMBS AND TWIGS should be tied in 1-FOOT ROUND BUNDLES NO LONGER THAN 6 FEET.
  3. ALL BRANCHES, LIMBS OR LOGS should be no longer than 6 feet, neatly stacked, all in one direction. No more than 3 inches in diameter is allowed. CHIPPER LIMITS.
  4. VINES AND PRICKER BUSHES must be tied in BUNDLES.
  5. STUMPS are to be free of DIRT AND DEBRIS.
  6. NO LEAVES OR GRASS CLIPPINGS are allowed with Brush Pick-Up.
  7. NO LUMBER, METAL, BUILDING MATERIAL OR FOREIGN DEBRIS are allowed.

REMINDER: If you are an OUTSIDE CONTRACTOR to cut down a tree, trim trees, bushes and/or landscape, the CONTRACTOR IS RESPONSIBLE for hauling it away — not the Borough.

VIOLATIONS: If Brush Pick-Up procedures are not followed, the brush will not be picked up and a notice will be left describing the violation(s).

GRASS CLIPPINGS -  The only material which should be put into the covered containers for these Wednesday pick-ups is grass. Please: NO TWIGS, BRANCHES, STONES OR OTHER MATERIALS.
