Freehold Township Creates Brush Collection Map

Map shows in red which streets in town have had brush collected.

A special emergency brush collection update has been issued for Freehold Township residents.

According to the township’s website, brush left from Hurricane Sandy has been continuously collected since the storm hit, however, despite the township’s best efforts, collection may continue well into January and February.

In order to keep residents informed, the township has created a map that illustrates where brush has been collected in town. The red areas of the map show which streets have been completed. Areas that remain to be collected are not highlighted. The announcement states that the map will be updated often.

The brush collection update states Public Works has been working six extended work days per week, and has employed the services of multiple contracting agencies for equipment and services to collect brush left behind from Hurricane Sandy. While the township is sympathetic to the inconvenience of the brush waiting to be collected, residents are asked for their continued patience during the cleanup of Freehold Township.

Really with the comments people??? Take a good look how much brush each house has, its a lot of brush and its going to take a lot of time to clean it up. It takes time to load it and to transport it to the dump which also takes time. These comments must be from pencil pushers or the know it all house wives. I'm a landscape contractor from the area and knew it was going to take months to clean up, not a few weeks.

They came down my street less than a week after the storm with no notice posted anyplace so we had not put everything in street. It is in street now and there hasn't been anyone by again! Freehold should do what other downs are doing, manalapan for instance, and hire private contractors to haul away debris along with dpw crew! And PS that pic of the pile with the story is horrible and doesn't even show the huge hazzardous piles everyplace!
