Spring Chipping/Branch Collection Program

Spring Chipping Program

Spring Chipping Program - Starts April 8

Beginning April 8. 2019, the Township will start a Spring chipping program. This will be slightly different than the brush collection program the Township carried out in recently years. 

All branches must be out for pickup on the first day of the schedule for your section. Absolutely no branches will be collected once a section is completed; there will be no more than one pick-up per household. There will be no exceptions to the published schedule. 

Branches should be placed in neat piles at curbside with large diameter cut-ends towards the street. The largest size branches shall be limited to four (4) inches in diameter. Short branches under two feet in length will not be accepted. You do not need to tie them together with twine.


  • Lumber
  • Building Materials
  • Fence Posts
  • Leaves
  • Roots
  • Stumps
  • Briars
  • Vines
  • Metal
  • Decayed Branches or other debris that can damage the chipper

Any material of the above nature will be left for your disposal. 

This program is for yard branch clean up only and is not intended to be used as a tree disposal program. Residents should not have trees cut down and placed at the curb for pickup with this program. If this happens, the piles will be rejected and left for your disposal. Please contact Public Works with any questions prior to putting out your branches, at 908-464-2700, ext. 2123
