We advise you to please leave your cans out at the curb if they are not emptied and Republic will attempt to complete the missed collections as soon as possible.

We are having temporary issues with the phone system. You may not be able to leave a message or the messages are delayed in being sent to the departments. Please contact us via our contact form with any issues.

Fall Leaf and Branch Collection

Leaf Collection has begun!

Unlike branch collection, we have 3 leaf trucks out at the same time. Please place your leaves out and allow some time for the trucks to reach your neighborhood. They will be out collecting until leaf season is over.

Please be conscious of leaves that are on or near stormwater inlets. Public Works will do its best to clear these inlets. However, If you feel inclined to clear leaves from the area near your stormwater inlet, it would help with any clogged inlets.

Residents can drop off branches and tree limbs year-round Monday through Friday, 7:00am to 2:30pm (Summer Hours: 6:00am to 1:30pm) in or next to the wood dumpster at the Public Works yard behind the municipal building.

Attention Delran Residents: Please review the following information regarding collection schedules, requirements, and specifications:

All leaves should be placed in the street next to the curb. Leaf piles should ONLY contain leaves. Other yard debris cannot be picked up by the Leaf Vacuum Truck.

Please do not put leaves in your trash bins. BAGGED leaves may also be dropped off at the Public Works yard year-round Monday through Friday, 7:00am to 2:30pm (Summer Hours 6:00am to 1:30pm) and every 1st & 3rd Saturday of the month 8:00am to 12:00pm.

Branch Collection: Branch pickup occurs from April 1st to October 2nd. All branches must be curbside by October 1st for the final collection October 2nd. (Curbside refers to branches being in the area between the curb and the sidewalk.)

Branch Collection follows the same route as the leaf collection map provided above, however takes approximately 6 to 8 weeks to run a full cycle for branch collection. Once your branches are collected, you should not put out another pile for at least 3 weeks.

The specifications for branch collection are as follows:

Branch or limb sizes are limited to a maximum of 8’ long and 4” in diameter and should be stacked in the same direction. No pile of yard trimmings bigger than 4 Cubic Yards or 12’ Long x 3’ High x 3’ Wide will be picked up.

Yard trimmings must be:

  • Uncut and left at full length and stacked with ends facing the same direction.
  • Free of leaves or vines mixed in the pile.
  • Piled in a neat and manageable condition.
  • Placed between sidewalk and curb. Yard trimmings may not be left in the street due to the State’s Stormwater Management rules. 

Tree Stumps will not be collected. Stumps and old firewood can be brought to Public Works from 7:00am to 2:30pm (Summer Hours: 6:00am to 1:30pm). Residents can also request to have stumps picked up by Public Works for a fee of $25. Please call Public Works at 856-461-7737 to schedule a stump pick up.

Tax Bill Update

Please be advised that the 2022/2023 tax bills have been mailed.  Residents should receive their bills within the week.  Grace period for 3rd Qtr. Tax Payments has been extended to 9/14/2022.  Please contact the Tax Office if you have any questions at (856) 461-7736 or [email protected].
