Please remember, the township does not provide a leaf pick-up service. Please plan for proper disposal of your leaves by:
- Keeping leaves and grass out of storm drains.
- Start a compost pile on your property.
- Contact a local landscaper to dispose of leaves for you.
Our Public Works Department works diligently to insure our streets are well maintained, please assist them by insuring the storm drains are not blocked by leaves. Your efforts will also serve your neighbors, as it will greatly reduce the possibility of street flooding due to leaf and yard debris, while helping the Township of Shamong meet the recently adopted NJ Department of Environmental Protections Stormwater Management plan. As a result of NJ-DEP's efforts, Shamong Township has recently adopted several state mandated ordinances, including one related to Yard Waste Collection Program
, which limits yard waste that is not containerized at the curb or along the street. Person(s) found to be in violation of the provision or the ordinance shall be subject to a fine not to exceed $100. If you need additional information on this ordinance, please contact the Clerk's office at (609)268-2377.
