Sticks and stones may break your bones, but the Borough only collects the sticks! In a town with as many trees as Medford Lakes, you can be sure we have a lot of brush. Especially after a big storm. For this reason we pickup brush at trail side several times a year.
Spring Leaf & Brush Collections: Leaf Collection will begin on Monday April 22nd District Order (1,2,3,4) Brush Collection will begin on Monday May 13th District Order (1,2,3,4)
Requirements for Collection
Brush can be no longer than 4 feet in length. Brush should be placed on the ground, as close to the road as possible, in a visible location. Brush will no be collected if behind obstacles (trees, mailboxes, cars, fences, etc.). Brush will not be accepted in bags of any type. Collections are in the months of March and September.
Brush must be out by the collection date to ensure that it will be picked up. Cannot be mixed with leaves. If you miss the collection date, brush can be dropped off on Saturdays at the DPW complex between 7:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. (proper resident identification required).
