Automated Curbside Yard Waste Collection

Have you heard that Curbside Yard Waste collection is now available in Harrison Township?  According to Deputy Township Administrator Dennis Chambers,

“Yard waste collection is typically a labor intensive and cost prohibitive service.  After years of research and analysis of the available programs, we decided on a predominately automated system.  This system is designed to maximize manpower and efficiency, which in turn will mitigate cost to the township and to the taxpayers.”

Dark brown carts, similar to the trash and recycling carts, will be available from the Public Works Department.  Residents should call 223-1308 to put their name on the list for a cart to be picked up or delivered.  Initially each requesting residence will be provided with one cart.

Your cart will be picked up the same day as your trash and recycling carts by a separate truck.  Be sure to space them at least 3 ft from other carts or objects such as mailboxes.

The professionals from Bumblebee Tree Service are trained in how to identify the the defects that can occur in a hazard tree, including root problems, poor tree architecture, weak branch unions, cracks, cankers and dead branches.  Click here for a Tree Removal Estimate or call 609-297-1721.

 

Tree Removal South JerseyEmergency Tree Services

How many times have  you surveyed the damage after a violent storm only to find fallen limbs and damaged trees in your or your neighbors’ yards?  Even the most hardy trees can suffer storm damage, and it’s critical that hazardous trees or branches are removed quickly before causing further property damage and injury.

Instead of approaching damaged trees yourself, which can cause serious injury if they suddenly break or fall,  contact a professional Emergency Tree Service like Bumblebee.  Whenever possible they try to repair the damage and avoid having to remove the tree altogether. Since most well-established trees are very resilient,  many can be salvaged if you call right away.
