The Township of Cinnaminson’s Department of Public Works provides fundamental services to our residents ents through the maintenance of our roadway network, park systems and facilities. While maintaining the Township’s infrastructure in an economic manner, we also strive to continually improve upon our services and educate ourselves on the latest materials and methods to service our residents and complete our mission. The department also takes great pride in providing construction services and enhancements, along with a wide range of services including recycling, and the stewardship of parks and open space.
Brush Pickup: Brush is picked up between March and October. To ensure pickup of brush (during the appropriate season) it must be at the curb no later than 7:00 A.M. on the Monday morning of the collection week scheduled for your area. Brush and/or leaves can only be placed curbside for collection one week prior to the beginning of the week of your scheduled pickup. Failure to comply may result in fines assessed. At the end of the season, your last brush pickup will be the week in October that you are scheduled, not the end of the month.
Leaf Pickup: Leaves are picked up in November and December, using the same schedule as brush. Leaves must be at the curb no later than 7:00 A.M. on Monday morning of your scheduled pick up. For your convenience, we also collect them the first week of April to the end of April for your spring clean up. Due to the large volume of leaves and brush we do not backtrack to pick up individual piles. Do not put leaves and brush in the same pile.
Bagged leaves can be dropped off behind the library.
Grass Clippings: There is no roadside pick up for clippings. Clippings can be bagged for trash, bags not to exceed 40 lbs.
