The Department of Public Works picks up residential yard waste from the curb the first Tueday of every month. The program is suspended during November and December to allow department personnel to focus on curbside leaf removal.


  • Tree branches with a maximum length of three feet and a maximum diameter of three inches.  Please tie in bundles not weighing more than 25 pounds.  Place behind the curb.
  • Other vegetative waste such as leaves, sticky balls, vines and shrub trimmings may be placed in brown recyclable bags. Place them at the curb for regular Tuedsay pick up, or drop them at the DPW garage located at 1 Public Works Drive.
  • Grass will not be picked up. It can be taken to the Monmouth County Recycling Facility in Tinton Falls. You will be charge a fee.
  • Shrubs weighing not more than twenty-five pounds, with all of the soil removed, can be placed curb side or taken to the Matawan DPW facility.
  • Stumps will not be picked up.  Residents must make arrangements with a private contractor for removal.
