Overview:

The Public Works Department is responsible for the collection of garbage, recycling and the maintenance of public roadways and storm drains. A fleet of trucks and equipment maintained at the Public Works garage enables us to provide these services. Public Works also has a Clean Communities Division funded through the State of New Jersey to help keep the roadsides clean. Other services include street sign installation, snow plowing, paving, leaf collection, brush collection, repair of township bulkheads and emergency response within the Township of Toms River.

SPRING 2016 COLLECTION SCHEDULES

 

SHRUB & TREE TRIMMINGS,

BRANCHES AND SMALL DIAMETER LOGS

 Beginning the week of April 4th, the Township will institute curbside pickup of shrub, tree trimmings & branches.  Branches must be less than 4” in diameter; all material must be in lengths of 4’ or less and weigh less than 50 lbs.  DO NOT BAG BRUSH OR TIE TWIGS/BRANCHES.  Put material to be picked up at the curb before 7:00 a.m.  Brush collection trucks will go through your neighborhood once during the collection period.  Collections will end on April 15th.

 

Throughout the year, residents can bring brush/branches to the Township’s Recycling Convenience Center and pickup free leaf mulch and wood chips (location is 1672 Church Road – entrance is ¼ mile east of North Bay Avenue).  You can also arrange for a delivery of either material in 10 cubic yards or 20 cubic yards by calling 732-255-1000 extension 8108.

 

 

LEAF COLLECTION SCHEDULE

 

The collection schedule is based on your recycling pickup day.

 

If your recycling day is on a Monday…leaf pickup will be once during the week of April 18th  

 If your recycling day is on a Tuesday… leaf pickup will be once during the week of April 25th 

 If your recycling day is on a Wednesday… leaf pickup will be once during the week of May 2th

**Have leaf bags curbside by 7:00 a.m. on the Monday of your collection week**

Only leaves in plastic bags will be collected.

 

Sometimes we are ahead of schedule.  You should put your bagged leaves to the curb before your scheduled week begins.  We may come early.  However, we will still come through your area once again during your scheduled collection week.

 Leaves are not permitted in landfill.  If you miss the curbside collection, bagged or loose leaves must be brought to the Recycling Convenience Center (located on Church Road, east of North Bay Avenue).  Hours are 7:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
