Newtown Township is again offering its residents the opportunity to drop off branches and tree limbs at the Newtown Township Public Works yard on MONDAYS in August and September. Branches and tree limbs can be as large as 10” in diameter.  The drop off times are Monday 7:00 AM until 2:00 PM.

Newtown Township traditionally offers a branch drop-off opportunity to residents during the spring and summer months.  However, as the Municipal Complex - including the Public Works yards have been closed to the public due to COVID-19, we had been unable to offer that this year.  The May curbside branch pickup program was well-utilized, and then during the month of June a special storm cleanup was offered.  The number of requests received and amount of wood collected put a significant strain on Public Works, with approximately 144,000 pounds of wood collected and chipped - representing 24 MACK-truck loads of wood chips.  While all requests were honored and completed, the over 300 hours of labor required meant that much other work that needed to be done at that time was not so that storm cleanup assistance could be done. 

Although we are unable to do another curbside collection of branches following the August storms, we will open the Public Works yard to facilitate branch DROP OFF for the remainder of August and September.  

Residents may drop off branches and tree limbs at the Newtown Township Public Works yard on MONDAYS in August and September. Branches and tree limbs can be as large as 10” in diameter.  The drop off times are Monday 7:00 AM until 2:00 PM.

Go to the Public Works building and yard behind the Municipal Building / Police Station / Library and look for the yard waste drop-off area within the yard.  Public Works will have the gates open at that time and a staff person will be present to handle the proper disposal of these limbs and branches.   

This service is for residents only, and is not available to landscaping companies, tree companies or to business properties. No appointment is necessary, but proof of residency may be required at time of drop-off.
