Spring Leaf Pickup

Spring has arrived and so has warmer weather which typically leads to outside yardwork.  The Voorhees Township Public Works Department is assisting in this chore by offering spring leaf collection as well as vegetation and yard waste removal. Signs will be posted at the entrance of each development prior to the scheduled leaf collection week.

The curbside spring leaf collection is offered with two options:


Option One – Place loose leaves curbside the weekend before your scheduled collection week below.  Please keep your leaf piles free of branches and twigs as these items clog the machine.

Spring leaf collection will occur from April 4 through April 8 for all residents who have a Tuesday trash day.

Spring leaf collection will occur from April 11 through April 15 for all residents who have a Wednesday trash day.

Spring leaf collection will occur from April 18 through April 22 for all residents who have a Thursday trash day.

Spring leaf collection will occur from April 25 through April 29 for all residents who have a Friday trash day.

Option Two – Place leaves in cans or brown biodegradable bags and set curbside Sundays after 4 p.m. and prior to 6 a.m. on Mondays for pick up Township-wide within one to three business days.  Leaves cannot be placed in plastic bags as they are not biodegradable and will not be accepted at the County compost site.


Vegetation and yard waste removal will occur starting Monday and continue during the course of the week.  Branches should be a maximum of four feet long.  Smaller twigs, plants, and grass can be placed in biodegradable bags or cans.  Please place these materials curbside by 6 a.m. Monday.  Keep all yard waste separated from loose leaves.  Collection will be within one to three business days.

For larger-than-normal amounts of non-hazardous household trash being discarded from attics, garages, etc., Voorhees Township offers bulk trash pickup on the third full week of the month on your scheduled trash day.  This Spring, the bulk trash weeks occur April 21 through April 25 and May 18 through May 22.  Construction debris will not be collected.  For questions or additional information, please call (856) 428-5499.

State law prohibits the Township from collecting hazardous materials. Camden County provides routine hazardous waste collection events. The next collection event is April 24 from 8:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m., rain or shine, at the Collingswood Public Works Complex, 713 N. Atlantic Ave. For more information, visit camdencounty.com/event/household-hazardous-waste-event/ or call (856) 858-5241.
