Public Works

The Department of Public Works provides maintenance services to Township roads and infrastructure, including storm sewers, and street sign installation. Other responsibilities include detention basin maintenance, mowing of Township properties, street sweeping, snow and ice control, and the annual collection of bulk, brush and leaves.

During a winter storm, access to properties and unimpeded traffic flow are vitally important to insure the safety of motorists. Prompt snow and ice control services on all municipally owned roads is therefore an essential task of the Department of Public Works personnel.

Public Works employees do not work alone to insure a quick and efficient control of snow and ice. Remember if it is snowing or expected to snow, please move all vehicles and portable basketball hoops, etc. from the roadway to allow snow and ice control services to work effectively.


Please read carefully to ensure your items are successfully collected.

Brush and Leaf Collection

Brush will be collected the first full week of each month from April through October. If your brush is not collected during the specified week, it will be picked up the following week due to emergencies or heavy collection from storm damage which prolongs the collection capabilities of our department. Please note there can be nothing mingled with the brush or it will not be collected.  If you have any questions, please call (609) 845-1100, Ext. 176.

2021 Leaf Collection Schedule

The Mount Holly Township Public Works Department’s leaf collection for residential properties will begin in October. Leaves will be collected two times in each zone – the second round of collection dates will begin after the first collection has been completed in all five zones.
