Spring brush clean-up planned for Monday May 1 through Friday May 5.  Late winter snows are over and spring has finally arrived.  We will be conducting a one week long brush pickup to collect tree and shrubbery trimmings throughout the township.  All of your recyclable brush MUST be placed at the curb or road edge before 7 AM on Monday May 1.  We will be starting on the eastern side of the township and working westward but THERE WILL ONLY BE ONE PASS MADE.  Materials not ready by 7 AM May 1 is not guaranteed to be picked up.  Note that no grass, leaves, tree stumps, dirt, stones, landscaping materials, ornamental grass, bamboo or branches over 6 inches in diameter will be collected.  If you are late placing your brush for our pickup, you may take it where we do to the H&H mulch facility on Old Hanover Road any day from dawn till dusk.

The township Public Works crew is planning to undertake numerous road projects this summer. They will include asphalt overlays on:  1.3 miles of Woodland Drive from Kopp to Orchard, 1.2 miles of Church Road from Lake to Roth's Church, 0.9 mile of Pahagaco Road, 0.7 mile of Pine Road from Grant to Biesecker, 0.6 mile of Leedy Road and 0.1 mile of Acorn Road.  Tree trimming and/or removal and drainage pipe replacement on those sections will be done as needed in advance of paving.  
Residents living along the affected roads will be notified through our website notices and signs in advance of scheduled work.  However, work schedules can be subject to weather, contractor delays and equipment or material availability issues.  Please be patient and pay attention to work zone signs and traffic control personnel.
