Biodegradable Bags

Leaves must be placed in biodegradable paper bags and put out at the curb the evening before the scheduled collection date to ensure they will be picked up. Bags should not weigh more than 40 pounds and should not contain trash or other waste. The Township no longer sells leaf bags, but they can be purchased at local supermarkets, hardware stores, wholesale stores, and a variety of other stores. Do not place bagged leaf and branch trimmings in plastic bags. They will not be collected. 

All leaves and branch trimmings are recycled, not landfilled.

What is Leaf Waste?

Leaf waste includes leaves, shrubbery and minor tree trimmings in biodegradable paper bags or containers, bundled shrubs or plants, excluding dirt, under four (4') feet in length and tied tree branches under three (3") inches in diameter and under four (4") feet in length. Grass clippings are excluded.
