MAPLEWOOD, NJ - The Maplewood Spring Rake Out Program is currently underway. The Spring Rake Out provides residents of Maplewood with "the opportunity to dispose of any unwanted branches, leaves, and other raked items from their lawns," according to an update to the Maplewood website.
Materials to be picked up are limited to branches, leaves, and garden rakings.
Each of the materials need to be packaged as follows, according to the Maplewood website:
- Branches must not be more than four feet in length and tied in bundles that can be handled by one person.
- Leaves and garden rakings must be placed in reusable containers (i.e., garbage pails/buckets) or paper bags that can be handled by one person.
- Rocks and soil are not permitted. Containers will be left behind if these materials are found in them, or if they cannot be lifted by one person.
