Earlier this month, the residents of Morris Township, as well as a significant number of other Municipalities in northern New Jersey, experienced two Nor’easters. The first brought devastating winds, and the second record-setting snow totals for some; both left downed trees and wires. The Morris Township Department of Public Works would like to assure all residents that we are planning to collect the brush. However, it will take a little time and planning to accomplish this task. Our crews are still removing broken branches and damaged trees within the Township Right of Way.
Our strategy remains the same as it was when significant storms in October 2011, October 2012, and July 2016 resulted in a town-wide cleanup of trees and tree parts. At this point we realize that, due to the recent snow, residents have not had enough time, nor has enough snow melted, to place tree debris at the curb for collection, and this will delay the process a while longer. A second notice will be sent out prior to the beginning of brush collection, allowing you enough time to put out all acceptable materials for collection.
We ask that all residents place brush out using the following guidelines:
Branches and tree parts:
It is the responsibility of the property owner to dispose of any trees or tree parts which do not meet these requirements. Your patience and cooperation are greatly appreciated.
If you have any questions, please contact our Department of Public Works Office at 973-326-7398.
