Township Removes 20k Yards of Brush Caused by Sandy

Leaf collection resuming after extensive cleanup of storm debris left by Hurricane Sandy.

The cleanup efforts from the historic destruction caused by Hurricane Sandy has finally been completed in South Brunswick, as the township has resumed leaf collection. 

Township Manager Bernard Hvozdovic said during Tuesday evening's council meeting that approximately 20,000 yards of brush was removed by South Brunswick Public Works following the storm. By comparison, Hurricane Irene in 2011 resulted in 8,000 yards of brush removed.

Residents have until Jan. 18 to place their Christmas trees curbside or at the nearest dumpster enclosure for recycling. The trees should be free of any decorations or adornments.

Public works has now moved their focus to leaf collection in the Brunswick Acres area before moving to the east side of Route 1. There will be no interruption of garbage or recycling pick up on Jan. 21 for Martin Luther King Jr. Day, although all municipal offices will be closed.

Residents can also bring leaves and branches to the township brush and leaf drop off area located behind Sondek Park at 473 New Road in Monmouth Junction. The gate is open 24 hours a day, seven days per week. Bags must be emptied and removed from the site.

As of Jan. 5, leaves have been removed from the following areas and streets:
