Leaf Collection & Snow Removal *
Voorhees Township collects leaves curbside in the fall. Next year’s dates will be posted at designated times in the Voorhees Sun newspaper, on the Voorhees NJ web site and channel 19. Signage will also be posted by neighborhood entrances and exits.
Depending on the duration and amount of snowfall, Voorhees Township trucks may plow your street several times. As the snow rolls off the plows, it sometimes accumulates in driveway aprons. Please understand that this is unavoidable and it is the homeowner's responsibility to clear it. In the event of heavy and deep snow, please shovel around your mailbox and fire hydrants near your house. This is for your safety as well as your neighbors.
