Fall leaf collections began this week in Brick Township and will continue through December. Each section of town will have two chances for leaves to be picked up.

If your recycling day is:

  • Friday: Oct. 19 and Nov. 23
  • Monday: Oct. 26 and Nov. 30
  • Tuesday: Nov. 2 and Dec. 7
  • Wednesday: Nov. 9 and Dec. 14
  • Thursday: Nov. 16 and Dec. 21

All leaves must be bagged. It is not legal in Brick to sweep leaves into the street, as the township does not operate vacuum trucks and leaves can block sewers. Residents are asked to have their bagged leaves on the curb by 6 a.m. on their designated days. The bags should not contain branches, twigs or debris.

Alternatively, leaves can be brought to the township’s recycling center on Ridge Road Monday through Saturday, from 8 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. They can also be brought to the Ocean County Recycling Center on New Hampshire Avenue in Lakewood.

Residents with questions are asked to call the Public Works department at 732-451-4060.
