Does this mean the brush my neighborhood has had in the street from Sandy will remain until these collection dates? Many of the piles do not conform to the regulations so does that mean that these will not be picked up? That would not be right or fair to those of us who have had these piles in front of our homes for the past few months, especially when we saw larger sized branches and whole trees moved right after Sandy to initially free the streets.

I'm taking a deeper look into the process this week. Many of the piles remaining in zones which have already been picked up are third or fourth rounds of brush and leaves. Will have more info within a few days, hopefully!

Miss what world do you live on, third and fourth rounds of brush and leaf pickup, as I just stated on another story my street has not had a leaf pickup since last spring
Kaitlyn Anness February 04, 2013 at 07:02 PM
I will be looking at the story from all angles. We have had many residents report landscapers putting out more piles than the township was planning to pick up.

O, so residents call or write YOU to report that landscapers are putting out more piles than the township was planning to pick up, how do residents known that? What did you not understand from my last post, there has been no leaf pickup since last spring on my street and they have not been put out by landscapers. Do you work for the Patch or Marlboro Township.

Residents have asked me to look into the situation, a job I'm happy to do as a journalist. As I said, both sides will be represented. Many residents share your frustration. If you wish to talk more about the subject, I invite you to post in our Local Voices section.

Thank you Kaitlyn. Just to let you know that my section of zone 1 was not picked up again since the initial pickup just after Sandy. Many of us did not even have the chance to move all the limbs and such to the street before that first pickup. I wonder what zones were picked up multiple times. Certainly wasn't here.
