Branch Pick-Up
Branch pick up is on the FIRST MONDAY of the month starting on Monday April 2nd. You must call 672-7732 before the first Monday of the month and leave us your address to receive this service.


This service is for the sole use of residents in the unincorporated areas for minor pruning and maintenance, not to be used by contractors/and or residents cleaning lots for new construction, more open space, complete landscape removal.

If a landscaper or tree company is doing the cutting, it is their responsibility to discard any branches.

Place cut ends towards the roadway in several small piles rather than one large one.

Branch should be no larger than 6 inch diameter and must be free of root balls, stumps, dirt, stone, metal and construction material.

Complete trees will not be picked up, branches only.

No leaves or yard waste.

We allow a maximum of 10 minutes at each location.

Burning of branches that are generated on your property is permitted in the unincorporated areas of the Township. To eliminate the possibility of false alarms, please call your Fire District to notify them of your burn date.
