Leaf collection this fall will be held on every Monday in November and December. All leaves must be placed in biodegradable compost bags. These bags can be purchased at the Public Works Department on Mondays - Fridays from 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.. The bags are sold in bundles of 5 for a cost of $2.00. You can also purchase these bags from local retailers. No leaves will be collected that are not contained in these biodegradable bags.

Please place bagged leaves at the curb, not in the street, on the first day of each scheduled collection to insure you will not miss any of the collections.

Brush and Tree Limbs are collected by the Garbage Company on the second refuse collection day of each week all year long.

Please use the following guidelines for brush and tree limbs: 

  • Tied securely in bundles

  • 4 foot maximum length

  • 50 pounds maximum weight

  • 2 bundle maximum each collection

Residents may take their leaves to the Recycling Center themselves. Our Recycling Center is located at the Public Works Yard: 207 Route 522 (Freehold Road). It is opened Monday through Friday from 8:00 a.m. - 3:00 p.m. and Saturday 8:00 a.m. - 2:00 p.m. It is also opened on the first and third Sunday of the month from 9:00 a.m. to noon.
