Brush and Grass Containers

06.06.2014  |  Email This Post   |  Print This Post

Reminder:  If you have a brush and/or grass container, please remember to keep the items separate.   Due to DEP regulations the grass needs to be separate from any other kind of yard waste at our landfill facility.  Due to the volume of residents utilizing this service we are now picking up earlier on Wednesdays. You may put your containers out on Tuesday evenings after 6PM.

There was a mass mailing done to all who have gotten a container as a reminder of the proper procedures.

The last pick up of the brush and grass containers was November 19, 2014 for the season.

Thank you very much for your cooperation.
