  1. Princeton Leaf and Brush Pickup:Recommendations of TTF I&O Subcommittee Presentation to the Princeton TTF September 19, 2012

  2. Goals of Consolidated Princeton Leaf and Brush Pickup Program • Rationalize pickup across Princeton • Account for differences across town • Density • Traffic flow • On street parking • For each part of town, provide a comparable level of service as compared to the status quo • Allow for efficient pickup by municipal employees • Comply with New Jersey storm water regulations

  3. Post-Storm Cleanup • As needed, based on severity of the storm • No change from the status quo

  4. Scheduled Fall/Spring/Summer Pickup • Regular pickup schedule announced at start of year • More frequent pickups in Central Princeton • “Central Princeton” to be determined by staff, but based on three criteria: • Streets with parking restrictions • Streets with high parking/traffic density • Streets with width issues

  5. Pickup Categories • Bagged pickup • Princeton divided into 4 or 5 zones, with weekly bagged pick-up scheduled for a different zone each day in fall and spring • Unbagged pickup • Published schedule with additional pickups in Central Princeton • Leaves separated from brush and vegetative waste

  6. Compliance with State Storm Water Regulations • State Storm Water Model Ordinance for Tier A Municipalities provides “placing yard waste that is not containerized at the curb or along the street is only allowed during the seven (7) days prior to a scheduled and announced collection” • This ordinance has been adopted by Princeton Borough and Township • By allowing Princeton residents to place yard waste in the streets throughout the year, there are periods of non-compliance • New program will have Princeton in compliance

  7. Proposed New Pickup Schedule – Fall • Important note: as is currently the case, weather will play a role in scheduling. This may result in: • Shifting the schedule to earlier or later in the season • An extra pickup in a given season

  8. Proposed New Pickup Schedule – Spring/Summer • Important note: as is currently the case, weather will play a role in scheduling. This may result in: • Shifting the schedule to earlier or later in the season • An extra pickup in a given season

  9. Estimated Cost Savings Costs have been calculated by Princeton staff and are a function of crew-days and vehicle operating costs.
