How do I dispose of leaves?

Hamilton Township's Public Works Department provides for a leaf pick up in the fall (November/December). 

When the township's leaf pickup program is not in progress, leaves can be taken to the Ecological Facility or can be put out on your regularly scheduled garbage day in bags (must be tied), not weighing more than 50 lbs.   Also, there is an 8 bag limit to the amount of containers you can place curbside for regular garbage pickup.

In the fall, pick up of leaves  in open bags or containers weighing less than 50 lbs is on going during the program.  Loose or gutter leaves are picked up on one week designated to each street.  The 2017 gutter leaf schedule will be posted in the fall to find out what week is designated for your street.  This is the only week leaves can be loosely put in the gutter.  

Leaves can also be dropped off at the Ecological Facility or one of the residential leaf bin drop off sites.
