Brush Collection from Tropical Storm Isaias

August 2020

Mendham Borough Public Works will be collecting brush from Tropical Storm Isaias beginning Monday, August 10, 2020.  Due to the anticipated volume of brush it will not be chipped on site.  Brush will be hauled away using machinery that may cause damage to grass.  The Borough is not responsible for any damages caused by the machinery.  Branches should be no bigger than 6” in diameter.

Please have brush curbside NO LATER than Monday morning (8/10).  If additional brush is put out after the crews have collected in your area or for any questions, please call Public Works at 973-543-6535. 

Please be aware collection will take an extended period of time, your patience is appreciated.

Thank you,

Mendham Borough Public Works




Mendham Borough offers brush pick up as a service to the residents. The Borough Brush Removal Program is for the homeowner’s convenience to assist in seasonal tree maintenance and storm damage to trees. No cut down, whole trees will be picked up.  This service shall not be used by private contractors. Persons hired by the property owners are responsible for removing material.  Piles deemed excessively large will not be accepted.  Public Works Superintendent has the right to refuse any pick up that does not fall within these guidelines.


The following information shall assist residents regarding brush pick up procedures:

  • All brush must be placed in front of the house generating it.
  • Brush piles must be placed on the curb not on the road which causes a safety hazard.  If limbs are too long, place them parallel to the curb.
  • The piles must be stacked in an orderly fashion and not tied in bundles and shall not be larger than six inches in diameter.
  • Stack brush with the cut ends facing the road in the same direction.
  • Brush will not be picked up unless it is called in.
  • Branches will be picked up within a week of calling in the location; we cannot schedule an exact day.
