Storm and Leaf Clean Up Continues

The township is working to cean up from Hurricane Sandy, and from the usual fall mess.

There are some modifications to leave and brush pick up because of the damage caused by Hurricane Sandy, but Mayor David Stahl says the goal is to have Public Works crews hit every road in the township at least once by the end of Wednesday.

In addition, the Public Works department says loose leaf pick up is still on  schedule.

“Our employees did an unbelievable amount of work through the course of the storm,” said Mayor Stahl. “Public employees sometimes get forgotten just because people think that’s just their job, and some think employees look for an easy way out. But I tell you they worked around the clock non-stop including this weekend to clean up streets as much as possible so when we have friends and family come for thanksgiving they can park in front of homes.”

Clean up is expected to take several weeks at least, and the township has had to modify its yard waste pick p schedule to accommodate.

Bagged leaves, brush, limbs and wood will be picked up from your neighborhood along with your regularly scheduled recycling collection.

Items should be put out separately, not mixed, curbside.

In addition, if you hire a contractor to remove a tree or large limb on your property, the contractor may dispose of the wood at the township’s leaf composting facility on Edgeboro Road at no cost.

Contact the Recycling Center at -732-432-6011 to schedule.
