Leaf Collection - Beginning Friday, November 1

Bordentown Township Public Works will begin leaf collection on Friday, November 1 in the north end of town and then will work their way south. Here are some guidelines regarding curbing your leaves:

  • Do not pile leaves any closer than 10 feet from storm drains.
  • Do not curb your leaves more than one week in advance of leaf pickup.
  • The leaf crew is unable to pick up branches, twigs or leaves in bags or containers. Bagged leaves may be dropped off at the Public Works Garage on Crosswicks Rd. 
  • Grass may be mixed with the loose-leaf pile.

Luyber Reforestation Project

In order to compensate for lost trees in our Township, it is required that developers replace the trees by planting new, similar sized trees, or by contributing to the Township’s “Tree Fund.” The fund is now being used to reforest the Luyber Property with approximately 1,900 new native trees. This reforestation will have a significant impact on the storm water management, air cleanliness, and overall quality of life for surrounding neighborhoods and municipality. The area will be protected from deer by fencing and will be maintained for a two-year period to ensure the health and establishment of the forested area. The current walking path will remain, and an additional portion of path will be constructed in the future.
