  • Turf management specialists recommend grass clippings be left on the lawn.  Call 732-531-5001 for more information on this lawn management practice.
  • Residents may bring grass, free of charge, to the recycling drop-off center.  Gardeners and landscapers must pay a $500 annual permit fee to use the facility.
  • Sod may be placed with the grass clippings, however the majority of soil must be removed prior to dumping at the recycling center.
  • Dirt (soil) may NOT be placed at the curb or at the grass recycling center.  A small quantity of soil can be placed out for collection with bulk trash, if containerized, in two five-gallon containers weighing no more than 50 pounds each.  To comply with current stormwater regulations, homeowners are prohibited from placing soil/dirt at the curb as it could enter the storm drain system resulting in clogging of the system and causing flooding.
