Township of Toms River



Beginning the week of October 13, 2014, 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 6:30 a.m. on October 14th.  Collections will end on October 24th.

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.


The collection schedule is based on your recycling pickup day.

If your recycling day is on a Monday ….Your leaf collection weeks start Nov. 3rd and Dec. 1st

If your recycling day is on Tuesday…. Your leaf collection weeks start Nov. 3rd and Dec. 8th

If your recycling day is on Wednesday…. Your leaf collection weeks start Nov. 10th and Dec. 15th

**By Monday 6:30 a.m. – have leaf bags to curbside**
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 weeks begins.  We may come early.  However, we will still come through your area once again during your scheduled collection weeks.

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.

REMINDER:  Wood chips and leaf mulch are available to residents                                      at the Recycling Convenience Center.
