Collection of Brush & Leaves

Brush Drop Off

The Convenience Center at 3790 Route 47 will be open from 8 a.m. to noon on the first and third Friday of each month for residents of Maurice River Township to drop off limbs and brush - no leaves. Residents must show the attendant a valid NJ Drivers License proving they are a Maurice River Township resident and must certify the block/lot or physical address from which the brush originated. Drop offs will be limited to two loads per month per residential property.

Brush & Leaf Collection

Brush & Leaf Collection takes place only twice a year:  once in the spring and once in the fall.  The schedule of pickup can be found below or on the township calendar.  Leaves must be raked or blown curbside and piled in windrow
fashion without containers or bags. Using machinery to move
leaves will mix debris within the pile and jam or damage the vacuum.
Fallen branches and yard debris caused by storms may also be
placed curbside completely separate from leaves. Branches can
be no longer than 10’ long. Each brush pick up is limited to 30 cu. yds
(22’ long x 8’ wide x 6’ high) per property
. If you anticipate exceeding
these limits, you may consider renting a dumpster (at your expense) or
delivering the branches and yard debris (not to include leaves) to the
MRT Recycling Center located at 3790 Route 47 which is now open on the
first and third Fridays of each month.

Leaves and brush may be placed curbside two weeks prior to your
collection date, but must be curbside on the Sunday just prior to the
date of your collection

These services are not intended to provide disposal for a landscaping
company or tree trimming companies. The resident should ensure these companies properly dispose of any debris their activity generates or consider renting a dumpster.
