Lawn Waste Disposal

As mandated by the Department of Environmental Protection (DEP):

  • Lawn waste may not be disposed of with your regular trash
  • Lawn waste may not be burned
    • The Township provides a "Leaf and Yard Waste Pick-up" during the month of November each year where residents may purchase yard waste bags at a nominal fee for pick-up the week before Thanksgiving.  The leaves will be picked up by the Township Road Crew or Opdenaker, depending on the volume of leaves, and will be composted.  Leaves may be blown in the woods or placed in a compost pile where they will naturally decompose. This method is the preferred method of the Department of Environmental Protection.
