Yard Waste Collection Service

Recently we have been unable to collect yard waste from a number of residents because the material left out for collection was mixed together. The North Plainfield Department of Public Works cannot accept mixed material when picking up grass - grass pick up can only contain grass. Brush, branches, and leaves may not be included. Our Transfer Station has been informed by the NJ Department of Environmental Protection not to accept our trucks if they contain mixed material. Please separate grass and non-grass material from your containers and we will pick it up at the next scheduled pick up. Please be advised that grass and brush are picked up on separate days as indicated in the Borough Collection Calendar which is available at Borough Hall, the Library and the Vermeule Center, as well as the Borough Website We apologize for any inconvenience. If you have any questions, please call 908-769-2914.
Thank you.
