Chipping of Storm-damaged Branches
At the Board meeting on Monday evening (4/7), the Supervisors voted to provide limited chipping services to Township residents. Please note that the service is for only storm damaged branches, not for general lot clearing or tree trimming. The brush and branches must be placed at the curb, with the larger end facing the street. The largest diameter branch that we can process is six inches in diameter.
With yard clean up on everyone's mind, you should all know that burning of brush and leaves is a very problematic issue. East Marlborough discourages burning; the Township prohibits the smoke and air pollution that travels onto neighbor's property. It is impossible to burn leaves at any time without creating dangerous and bothersome smoke. SECCRA Landfill, on Route 926, accepts bagged leaves, as well as branches and brush. The material must be transported in a covered vehicle. Please consider your neighbors and the environment before igniting any brush fires.
