The Department of Public Works completed the one-time yearly brush, leaf, and gumball pickup in the spring of 2018. Residents are reminded that there aren’t any additional brush pickups for 2018, therefore, please do not place these items in the street. The 2019 spring pickup dates will be provided in the Scotch Plains Messenger early next year.

The Department of Public Works will begin the fall leaf pickup program on October 22nd. This program is for the pickup of leaves only. Therefore, branches are not permitted for pickup at the curb. Residents are asked to store any brush or branches on their properties until the 2019 spring pickup.
