The Highway Crew manages the depository which accepts and chips brush deposited by Exeter and St. Lawrence residents and then provides the mulch for pick up. This deposit area is located at the Trout Run Sports & Recycling Complex at the intersection of W. Neversink Road and E. Neversink Road and is for the convenience of Exeter and St. Lawrence residents only. The brush must be generated on a Township or Borough residential property and delivered by the property owner.
Trout Run Access Cards:
Township Residents can purchase a Trout Run access card at the Exeter Township Building (4975 Demoss Road) weekdays between the hours of 8:00 am to 4:00 pm.
Registration requires proof of residency or land ownership either via a drivers license (proof of residency) or a paid tax receipt (proof of land ownership). A cash payment of $10 is required. The access card will be renewed annually (January 1st) at a cost of $10 and there will be no refunds once a card is purchased.
Please be advised:
One card will be given per household. There is a penalty fee of $600 for anyone who is caught using a resident's card not living within the registered household and the access cardholder will lose all user rights to the Trout Run facility. Landscaping companies doing work on residents’ properties are not authorized to use Trout Run.
Dumping construction debris or trash of any kind at Trout Run is expressly prohibited and carries a fine of up to $600 per offense.
