Due to loss of equipment in the March 7 fire in the Public Works Garage, Hopewell Township has provided the following update regarding 2015 spring brush and leaf collection programs:
The spring brush collection program will begin on April 6. Collection will occur in each Zone as published on the township website: http://www.hopewelltwp.org/pub_works_main.html
Collection may take longer to complete due to the shortage of trucks resulting from the fire. All rules for collection still apply and shall be followed.
- Brush shall be stacked in piles for collection in a pile that measures no greater than 4 feet wide by 4 feet high by 15 feet long (4 x 4 x 15) – NO EXCEPTIONS.
- Decorative grasses of any kind will NOT be collected.
- Brush piles with leaves mixed in will NOT be collected.
- Brush piles are NOT permitted to be located on street pavement areas.
There will be no leaf collection during April. Spring leaf collection will be performed in May and will begin on May 4.
The Township Committee and professional staff continue to work toward restoring the Township to normal operations as quickly as possible and continue to appreciate everyone’s understanding and patience.
