Leaf Pick Up Begins

Maintenance personnel will be around to pick up leaves that are piled curbside. No grass clippings please as it clogs the leaf machine. Brush pick up has ended until spring when it will resume the end of March. Personnel may pick up brush one more time in November. Brush can be taken to the compost facility on Cemetery Road daily until dusk. There is no need to call the township as they do not pick up by appointment but rather personnel canvass the island and pick up leaves on a regular basis. Leaves are collected in fall and early spring and brush is collected spring through early fall every other week or as their schedule allows.
